In my honest opinion I would never use those full length headers as they are more pain then what there worth. I have two s10's with 350 sbc in both of them and I use the shorty headers. I once had the full length headers in my 86 s10 and hated them from day one. The header on the passenger side is a two piece header flange and first you put one section in and then the other. The exhaust flange warped big time in less then a year and could never get it to seal after that regardless of what gasket I used. You will also will not be able to run your oil filter from the engine block and will have to use a oil relocater kit. Honestly the shorty headers are not that bad and allows more room for things. Yes you loose some power but if your not racing and need every horsepower then the shorty's are decent. Yes also those other motor mounts will allow engine to be moved some too but I just have welded mounts on my 86 s10.
