'97 K2500 454 4X4 Exhaust Headers

Any opinions? I want to get rid of the cracked and extremely rusty cast iron exhaust manifolds. They have to get replaced regardless and I'm thinking exhaust headers on the '97. I have Borlas on my SBC '89 for over 20+ years and they've held up fine; not on option on the '97 though. The options I see with Summit Racing are JBA and Gibson. Does anyone have experience with either of these two? I'm in Calif. so I'm restricted to parts choices with a Calif. EO#.

Original owner; some of the aftermarket parts I've installed are Borla headers, Hypertech chip, Edelbrock water pump, and a Stillen rear disc brake conversion kit.

I have the Gibson SS shorty headers with the donut gasket built-in on my 95 that I converted to a Vortec. They have the provision for the EGR tube which is convenient, should bolt right up.

Toy list:
1995 C1500 Ext. Cab 5.7
1995 GMC Yukon 4dr 2wd 5.7 Vortec conversion, AAM TracRite, Lincoln Mark VIII fan conversion
