Post are 1 5/8 long tubes too small for a 414 ci small block?

i am putting a 414 small block stroker in my s10 blazer. the only resonably priced longtubes come in a max 1 5/8 with 3 in collector size. there are also some 1 3/4 inch sanderson headers, but they are shorties. which ones should i go with? will these be too small for my engine? i plan to go with AFR 195 heads, an rpm airgap intake and a modified 750 double with proform body(about 800 cfm. compression will be 10.5:1, and i was looking at a solid lift comp cam. dur at .050 250 int and 260 exh.

also, hooker makes some 1 5/8 as well with equal length tubes, but they wrap around the frame rail(limited turning radius), and are a huge pain in the *** to install. do you think it is worth the extra troubles, and worth giving up some turning radius for equal lengths?

thanks alot
