Default Shorty Headers vs LT's

What is the difference performance wise?Will shorty headers gain any rwhp?
If there's not much difference, I would rather install shortys and save $$$ by keeping my stock mid-pipe.
If there's a big difference, the LT's FTW!!

I want to get some LTs....but I dont want the hassle of not being able to drop my tranny. Any brand make an LT where you can still drop the transmission?
