BBKs are good, as are JBA. Shorties are normally a direct bolt on in place of the stock ones. If you're gonna do it, also try to find a new Y-pipe as the stock one is a downright nightmare to look at.

Shorty headers bolt right into place of the stock log-style header. They flow better and give you better mid-high end. Longtube headers require more install work as you have to route to a custom Y-pipe then to your stock exhaust location. However, they give you much better low-end torque which is where our trucks really need it.

Long Tubes are better power gainer's and they do sound good. Shorties are good if your not wanting to spend a lot of money.

I do not want to have to say it again but shorties are no good. They are good for some power but not as much as long tube! Long tube will be a noticable gain in power!

If you go with Pacestter they are not that expesive and you will be much happier! I do not want you to have high hopes for shorties and get them and be disappointed. You will see something but not much. If you think about it they are the same design of the stock headers, maybe a little more efficient.

Long tube headers are designed for maximum flow. They are smooth with no restrictions. Shorties are looped around and they have bends, which is the opposite of the long tubes.

Pacestters are like $250-300 painted but they havea special coating for $450. This is not much more than the shorties. You can get serious with long tubes and get Dynatechs for like $1300. Those are the badest ass headers you can get!!!

Like Cdnoil said the long tubes do require some more man hours to get it in. The thing about the Dynatech kit for $1300, it comes with the 2 high flow cats and the Y pipe. It is definitely worth the $1300.

Installation on the shorties will be easier than the long tubes. The thing is if you are going to do it than do it right. If you get shorties there is a way to get an upgrade. If you do long tubes than that is it there is no upgrade, you have done it all! Thats how I look at things haha

This is my $.02, hope its worth more

Very well explained! I definitely like Long Tubes over Shorties. That's my honest opinion though.
