2000 Mustang v6 Headers advice?

I've got a 2000 mustang v6, manual transmission. I've got a cold air intake and dual exhaust already put on her, but I just found out I have a major exhaust leak. Should I spend the extra money to get nice headers, or just go with the stock replacements. The cheapest I could find a set of stock replacements was for about a hundred and fifty bucks on ebay. I found some pacesetters for only a little bit more. Is it worth forking out the extra? If I go with aftermarket headers, should I go with long or short tube headers?

The above to 2 posts are correct, shorties are worthless performance wise, if able, go LT's.

But... I have ceramic BBK shorties on my 01, and they are very nice, high quality headers, they probably won't fall apart like the factory stockers.
