Long tube headers

I'm going to get some long tube headers here soon for my 2014 automatic. I need help deciding on what brand I am between the kooks, stainless works and jba. I want to go with a catted x pipe also. I now kooks are great quality but dang 1500$ and the jba are 900$ what do you all think?

Kooks are not a true longtube but rather a mid length header but they have the best o2 placement of all the headers which is important. Spring for the Kooks.

of those, I'd choose the JBA's, they fit well, make good power, and you have some extra money to spend elsewhere. but warning, the JBA's do however, hang pretty low which could be an issue for lowered cars

I just don't like the 409 stainless. they are 1 7/8 though which is a plus

I was looking at stainless works LT's for my f150 but $1,200. It's a little pricy for my budget.

Makes me wonder if the 5.0 SW LT's for the mustang would fit the 5.0 on my f150?

im sure they will fit. just doubt they will hang low enough to hook up the rest of the exhaust on the f150.
