From what I've been reading, the best headers I can buy are Long Tube headers. I realize this but i was wondering how effective the aftermarket shorty headers are. I know that the longtubes scavenge better, but i didnt know how comparable the shortys were. Considering that a good pair of shortys costs half the price of a pair of longtubes, i wanted to know just how much better the LTs are. Also, how will each of these affect my exhaust volume/tone? I wouldn't mind being a little louder. Right now, I have a Pypes O/R X-pipe and Mid Muffler system, and i like the tone. Any input/advice would be greatly appreciated.
