Default tall or short billet intake?

I'm going to get a Z-RC billet intake for my baja. What I'm trying to figure out is whether to go with short or tall.
Does anyone have any experiences as to what advantages/disadvantages the tall one gives over the short?:ponder:

I went with the short. The only disadvantage that i know of for the tall one was the air cleaner is already tight and i heard it just made it worse. As for other advantages between the 2 i don't know of any.

If you have windows then go with the short one. Without windows either is ok, but the tall one will make the filter stick out beyond the cage.

Performance wise, conceptually yes there should be a difference, but realistically not enough that you will notice.
