I would not waste my time getting other non-turbo headers than you already have. What you have will work fine. If you want to spend some more money, B&G custom turbo makes a really nice set of turbo headers. This will fix the position of your turbos in a way that will work for sure for fabbing the rest of the setup. THAT is an advantage. Also, one less thing to build.
I think they are like 300 - 350 bucks.

How much of a difference would those 1 3/4'' Bassani/AFM short tube headers make, as compared to the 1 5/8''?
They would make a difference in that they would be a PITA to get on there, may not even worked flipped. Plus with a turbo you do not need the biggest tube header in most applications, it could even possibly hurt a little. I would use the shorties you have over those log headers posted above.

I used flowtech 1 5/8" on mine but I wouldn't recomend this to anyone as I am currently making another set from scratch.I got them cheap but man what a PITA to take off and put on as I had a leak problem with the pass side header.
I'm using a 3/8 flange this time(over 1/4") and trying to place primaries as to allow easier access to the header bolts.
Also the flowtechs have a more round port opening which I never liked.
JMO if your shorties are flowtechs.

my friend made 720 to the wheels on cft's dyno with flipped shorties and a home fabbed kit. and a gt42
I'm running a much smaller turbo with shorties (tried to use equal length, what a pita) make sure you don't run equal length whatever you do, mine should come in right around 450 on a mild h/c/i setup
