Default BBK vs JBA

Which shorty headers are better? Im thinking of getting the BBK's. I cant see there being a big difference between the two.

Update: I just ordered the bbk shorties. I cant wait to get them. Got them from amazon since i had a gift card for them. They should go good with my Dynomax VT muffer and magnaflow Y-pipe. Should i use the mopar factory exhaust gaskets? I keep hearing that its the way to go.

I have the BBK's and love them, direct fit to the factory Y which is what I was looking for. Good luck on your choice, I got the ceramic ones BTW.

Great choice on shorties. And yes, use a new set of factory exhaust manifold gaskets. The paper gaskets that come with most aftermarket headers are junk.
