    Just wondering, why shortys ??? I know it's just my opinion, but I don't understand the wanting of shorty headers when Full size will fit and in my opinion give better preformance.

    It's no opinion that they'll give better performance. It's fact. Shorty headers are not for trucks unless they're lowered and ground clearance is an issue.

    Long tube headers are to long, with the stock drive shaft he has maybe 1/2" clearence. If he went with a High Angle drive shaft "which he plans on it" the bigger tube of the drive shaft will hit the headers.
