    Depends on where you want your power at. All out racing a short header tends to be best. A cruiser needs a longer header. This is just a general statement. You set up and combo will decide where your collector length needs to be.

    Headers and collector length don't seem to make much of a difference on blown motors. Remove the blower and header and collector length become much more critical. When you have something pushing the intake charge into the motor, the most important thing is just getting the spent charge out. On unblown motors, headers become a tuning device.
