Long tubes!!

Ok here is my rant and rave!! Last year i had true dual exhaust installed then a couple months later i lowered my sixxer. Well up until last weekend it was doing awesome. Then one day i noticed a performance drop in my exhaust. Well needless to say i screwed it all up by not installing the springs first. Well i took it to an exhaust shop last tuesday an had them run a single pipe from each header to its own muffler. I am NOT running any type of H/X pipe now. Guess you can say they are divorced. And had them install turndowns at the muffler before axle. I have noticed a BIG performance increase from the set up. But some how there is a leak coming from the passenger side header. Well for my next mod i want to put long tubes on. Should i get the long tubes with an egr port or without? And next do i HAVE to HAVE a tune set up after installing the long tubes? I know this is a long post, but atleast u have an idea why im at this point. I dont want cats and i dont want to fix an oem part.

If your state doesn't do emissions testing, then just get rid if the egr completely. And you don't necessarily NEED a tune, but it will help your car run way better and you'll feel better about it

If you wanna block your egr get the ones without the port. However this will cause your engine light to go on unless you get it tuned to ignorethe egr input.

Yeah, i seen a thread about blocking it by fabing up a block plate, and i already talked to a guy about a 4bank eliminator chip, im not doing now or turbo anytime soon, and motor work isnt in my budget, once i purchase the long tubes, i will order the tuner, and intall them both at the same time.

Man i will tell u this, since i went and had my exhuast redid, it doesnt sound a mean, i did turn downs at mufflers before axle, and it is a lil mean, but with my exhaust leak at headers it sounds disgusting. They put 4 hangers on each side, and i can really feel how much tighter my exhaust is
