Default Shorty headers for 5.7

I will be recieving my Techco Supercharger in a week or so, I now want to add a set of shorty headers. I know the long tubes breath better, but I want something that is just a bolt on for now.
What is your choice and why? Here is what I am looking for. Shorty headers that are 100% bolt on, ceramic coating.
Also your experiance in installing them if you did them yourself. I have searched this and other forums and most of the time they never answer, it just ends up being a discussion on entire exhaust systems.
I have heard the motor needs to be raised to install them, so I need to get these installed before the supercharger goes on.

I went with the JBA shorty headers. Not saying they are the best but for me the price was right. I installed them myself and yes the engine must be raised very slightly to get the motor mounts out. i did one side at a time on the ground with car jacked on each side. They were pretty easy to install. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I will look into them, I just want to install them before the supercharger. I do not think I will have the room to lift the motor once the supercharger is on.
