Block huggers fit in some places mid length or long tube headers cant. They were really designed for tight fitting street rod engine compartments.
Mid length tubes and long tube headers move the HP and torque curve up and down the RPM band.
It really comes down to if you are looking for max hp/tq and have no fitment issues. If som, then block huggers or mid length might be better suited for you..
