from everything ive read on the 6.0's shorty headers to nothing. Full thing is the way to go. Im guessing it is a daily driver. I would recommend spending the extra money on ceramic or stainlessfull length headers. IMO.

Justa quick search, pulled these I think the 5.3 and 6.0 have the same header pattern.

its for my work truck which is my dd too. i will look into the full length ones then, and i will definitely go with a good finish. I have some time to figure it out, just need to get it ready for plowing

full length headers are extremly pricey. not worth the 10 Hp gain to spend 900 bucks compared to buying the edelbrocks which will give the same performance gain for only 300.
