is baytown in houston? cause if it is, then go with shortys because it sucks to be changing out the headers for the emisions test. if not, then go with race headers, i made a mistake by buying the jba shortys because of the same reason, but i switched over and there is a big difference in power, but then again i live in the rgv and we don't have those test here and i know the guy that does my inspection sticker

also i just noticed on ur sig that u have a 2.5 exhaust, man bro unless u have a bigger motor or f/i, ur actually losing power. u should stick with a 2.25 so ur car can proform a little better.
