    Bill there are Gains with both Short and Long Tube Headers.......going with Long Tube Headers will yield you Better Gains, than do Shorty Headers.......the one down-side with Long Tube Headers, is your Exhaust will most likely need to be Re-Worked, as where Shorty Headers are a Direct Replacement of your Stock Exhaust Manifolds, and in Most cases will just Bolt-on......

    .......Below is an Article on Short Tube Vs Long Tube Headers on a 2007 Chevy Tahoe with the 5.3 Liter.....it shows the Spec's(Gains)on the Short Tube vs Long Tube Headers......Bottom-line it all comes down to what you are.....Wanting and/or Looking to Spend and What kind of Gains your Looking for from a set of Headers,
