long tube headers vs. shortys?

Just wanted to know the difference between the two and what the power difference is. I plan on getting the whole exhaust system done and want the most bang for the buck. Anyone have anything done yet? Just kinda weighing my options right now.

Long tubes generate more hp and torque.

And they're louder, more costly, harder to install/fit, and less emissions compliant.

What you have to decide is if the extra power is worth it.

They are named based on their appearance. Long tubes more efficiently deliver airflow to the exhaust. They tend to develop substantially more power.

Be glad some aftermarket company will make them for this car, not to mention the FR layout of the camaro helps alot. Making long tubes for a FF car = LOL
