Longtubes are better if you can afford them but the FMS shorties are not too much money, fully stainless and you can get them in ceramic for a little more and they are OEM. You'll spend at least double or triple to get the longtubes in. I'd honestly get the shorties and call it a day.

From the flange on the flow tube and the color of the flow tube it looks like that's a stock catback too or at least you've got a stock catback with aftermarket mufflers. I'd get shorties and a real catback before buying longtubes and a new midpipe.

Also if you get shorties do yourself a favor and get the Ford Racing Ceramic coated ones. DO NOT cheap out and get a $150 set of Flowtechs or some crap. They'll turn white after a week and start rusting within 6 months. Even the BBKs are not the greatest. I had a set of FRPP Ceramic shorties on my 95 from 2003 to 2009 and they looked nearly brand new when I pulled them.

That would only matter if he was running some huge heads that needed 1 and 3/4 primaries or even 1 and 7/8 which he is not IIRC. Not relevant.

Actually, I have GT40x heads which happen to be intake biased so they need as much help on the exhaust side as they can get (i.e. longtubes). Which, may I remind you, are not big heads. So yes, it does happen to be relevant.

All heads will benefit from Longtubes over shorties and I did mention to him that longtubes are the best but yes he will probably pay triple of even the FRPP shorties to get them in which is why I suggest the shorties. And I honestly thought you were going to mention primary sizes.

Of course all heads will benefit from longtubes. If you have the money and don't mind putting up a fight with the instal get LTs. If not, no big deal. With stock heads you won't be sacrificing enough power for you to worry about. Plus shorties are an extremely easy instal.

Sorry about your other question fella. I got caught up in the first one. You don't have to put the spacer on if you really don't want to but what the spacer does is add extra distance for the air to travel which creates more turbulence in the flow which creates a more complete combustion. That's what the "experts" will tell you anyways. I personally can't say that I believe that 100%. However, I have one on mine because it came with it. It can't hurt to have it on there just in case it does what they say it does!
