If you dont have turbo plans then go with longtubes...give better trq range then shortys, shortys are better for a turbo setup down the road because u can just switch sides....the long tubes are better for power and sound so basically alll around....the con is buying a special mid pipe or creating one just do a full MAC system

http://v6mustangstuff.com/Headers.htm

the longtubes on www.V6mustangstuff.com cost 40$'s more then shortys which isn't much but you'll pick up extra weight but performance along with sound so you cant go wrong for 40$'s more Im getting shortys but thats because i have a catback to a offroad xpipe already I rather not buy the longtubes then buy a short mid xpipe then sell my old....I just dont have time for that i rather get other bolt ons plus i want to Twin Turbo my car neways so thats whats in store for my V6....but if i didnt have turbo plans def. Longtubes

there is a great thread about this in the 5.0 section if that interests you at all. The outcome: LTs if you can afford it because they are definitely worth it.

OK about shortys being useless lemme see...if you dont wanna pay 5000 or higher for a twin turbo kit that come with headers then why not buy shortys turn them around on different sides then weld a pipe from the to the turbo instead of paying so much money i rather do things my self because saving money isnt worthless hmmm nice one

MAC would be the best option or getting the mid pipe and a new cat back exhaust, and when selecting what to buy it says w/ air injection and w/o air injection is that talking about an aftermarket CAI or some sort of forced induction or what.
