Long or Short Performance TOR's

I'm trying to decide on which performance off-road pipes to get put on my new 2006 SM. Dealer is going to remove the AI.
Which are louder, or which has best sound?
All things being equal, which provides the better performance?
Any re-jetting required with this install? I'm going to pull off the snorkel as soon as I get the bike shipped to me.
Need your responses ASAP.

On my two Americas I installed Slash cut shorties on one, Speedmaster shorties on the other.

The slash cut sound the best and that bike performs the best. I wish it were the other way around, I like the looks of the Speedies best.

I originally got long slash cuts but they were way too loud and tinny sounding. They went on and came back off the same day.
Photos of both bikes, I like the looks of the SpeedMaster shorties the best, but prefer the sound of the Slashcuts.
Either gives better access to chain for lubing. Out of the way for working on wheels, etc..
