Well now, because you didn't specify actual dimensions we'll have to talk very generally. Generally speaking you'll probably see more torque with a shorty and more hp with the long tube.
The shorties are a bolt in, the long tubes will require fabrication. Also while most shorties are CARB legal I don't know of any longs that are.
And you didn't ask but I really like the BBK equal length shorties.
