only the difference between exhaust manifold and stock headers should count... it won't even matter because you'll be accelerating so hard all the time your weight will always be over your back wheels.

Well, if that's the case drag racers should put 1000lbs of lead in the front to keep it from doing wheelies. Having the wheels up like that creates a lot of drag I'm sure. Oh wait, drag probably doesn't exist either...
