headers options and gains

so,a local buddy of mine has a few mods on his MM (4:10 stainless works -full back, high stall, and tune) definitely pulls on my merc (just flowmasters and jmod)

I"m curious what options are there for headers, and what gains can be expected?

I thought that was the other way around? SW were unequal mid length and kooks were equal length long tubes?

Actually, I'd still call the Kooks headers long tubes.
The odd thing is that the driver's side collector is parallel to the floorpan, the passenger's side is angled down towards the ground.
I ordered mine with the 'ball & socket' style connections.

Still like $1000?

I want to open it up a little, but this is by no means my "fast" vehicle.

honestly I think my F150 is quicker. (3.5eco)

If I wanted to go fast Id take one of the ninjas.
