I ride with cops a lot, and it's easier to explain shorty headers than LT's. When I have lunch with the chief, I want to be able to talk about racing and at least be able to pretend that the car is street legal.

From a performance perspective, I will leave some horsepower on the table, but not a lot, and it will still open up the restrictions. Then there are some benefits like ease of install and easier tuning (not tuning out O2 sensors).

Good question, though.
