I'd lower that thing and stabilize it more.

Gotta go with springs and sways.

One would make your car handle better with a little bit of HP increase and the other will make roughly 3X the HP increase without the handling. It's more a question of what YOU want. No one knows the answer but you. Conversely, you could go with a cheaper set of headers and get a combo of both. I'm not saying that's what you should do but it's another option.

Oh, this thread is FAR from epic. It's just another "what should I do" thread with a different title.

No not so much epic thread just an epic debate between me and my friends as we are sitting here having a few. Keep in mind I just got back from TSP where we picked up my boss's vette that just got a head and cam package and another buddy has a fox body Camaro with cam head and headers.. I want the sound and HP of the headers but I almost feel I get more bang for my buck with the CIA shifter and springs n sways.... I figured I'd get the opinions of my "other" friends and family before I made a decision

No they don't have to be kooks but if you have an opinion on another set that will give me similar sound and gain I'm open to other options

You could do OBX headers and still have enough to do all your others mods.

Pfadt stage II (springs and sways) and a set of TSP headers will run you right at $1100. Honestly, there's not a HUGE HP difference between any of the LT's. I'm not starting another debate about buying American made or any of the other things brought up when comparing the different headers. Speaking from a HP gain standpoint ONLY, they are all pretty close.
