Longtubes or shorties

I know I know, been asked a million times. But, I've heard from a guy I know that longtubes are a waste of money, and that shorties are better. I'm getting ready to bite the bullet on something pretty soon. It's Daily driver. I don't care about how loud. The louder the better. I have off road h and pype bombs right now. I'll get an mpt tune. What would you guys recommend? I'm leaning toward shorties for price. But longtubes for power/sound.

Longtubes. Don't take the cheap route because you already have the h pipe. Im assuming longtubes won't fit to your h pipe, so you don't want to replace it. Shorties will probabl add 3-5 horsepower. If for whatever reason you ever add more mods, those longtubes will just help even more.

Yeah i found someone selling hooker Lt and off road h pipe. I offered him 350 and he said he'd take it. They're brand new. Seems like a steal to me haha. Any idea how much a shop would charge to install? Or anyone in Texas want to help me? haha

Install should be $100 for the y pipe and 300-400 for long tubes.

I believe that living in California you can only have short tubes. You also need to put on your CATS or prepare to pay a nice fine when you get caught.

The police are nice to Domestic cars in Cali. Never really known of someone get hassled over exhaust. Plus it's a federal law to have cats, no matter where you are it is required to have them.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

If I install longtubes and the o2 sensors don't reach, Will it affect anything if I were to drive it without them? I'd get extentions but I don't have them right now and I'm wanting to start installing them hopefully this coming week.

Anyone around san antonio or Austin Texas that can help me with a longtube install? I don't have the space to do it and can't afford a shop install.

For those who have done a longtube install, how long should I soak the studs in Pb blaster? And if it's over night would I be ok to spray it one night then drive to the place where I'll be doing the install the next morning?

Never heard the Bullitt axle backs. But I assume it sound pretty good.

Any idea how bad my car would run if I loaded my tune for long tubes without my longtubes installed yet?

Is the difference in longtubes real noticeable? I still feel like I don't have must torque even after getting a custom tune for my setup now. Putting my longtubes on this week and I'm hoping I can really feel a difference
