I think it all comes down to how many hairs you want
your welder to loose in the process.  A conical header
is best for equal length headers, I was shooting for
this, then reality sunk in.  I did it just because I
wanted to mostly, I'd be intereseted to see the dyno
differences between the two, but that will most likely
never happen since it would have to be on the same
car.  I doubt there will be much difference,
especially on the high end of things.
