long tubes will give better power but hang lower and if the car is low to the ground you may have issues. Also fitment can be a paint as well as installation... and cost for that matter.

Re: looking for ideas

long tubes for sure. x and h pipes both make power but sound drastically different. i prefer the sound of an h-pipe. they arent too bad to install but not too easy either.

Re: looking for ideas

I agree with the previous posts. H-pipe for sure. Long tube headers if you're willing to deal with more hassle and expense for better sound and performance. Short headers will still improve over stock.

It's a sort of cross between an H-pipe and a X-pipe. It has a little 'chamber' (a box) at the crossover.
