Is your car a vert? Longtubes won't fit on a vert I have been told due to mid-pipe fitment...

If not, longtubes are pretty straightforward. I installed a set of summit racing longtubes on my 75' camaro. Quite a bit more room under the hood but I'm sure it couldn't be that hard..

KOOKS are about as good a header as you can buy. is there a reason that you need something that large?

I am pretty sure the Kooks will work.

Also I know that MAC will work as I installed a pair the other day.

Yes. I've been running MAC long tubes for the last 4-1/2 years. Installation wasn't too painful. The dipstick tube needs to be bent forwards and the passenger side header runs close to the starter, but otherwise clearance wasn't an issue. I'm still using the original dipstick; it's flexible enough to slide in and out of a bent dipstick tube easily.
The Kooks headers are more expensive but they're generally regarded as one of the best on the market. The larger primaries are more suited to a forced induction engine so they might be the better choice for you.
