Depends on wat u want out of the stang. Shorties are nice and work with turbo setups but imo i like long tubes better. Make more hp and just damn sexy lol. Plus the sound quality is a plus but thats imo

Long tubes also require an off road mid pipe. So it's more work, but puts out more power and sound. I'm going with shorties my self, but it's all preference and budget really.

Long tubes or leave your factory ones alone. They don't require no cats, just a mid pipe that is made for them

I have an O/R X-pipe and I would like to not have to get rid of it, could I still get long tubes and keep the x-pipe?

Maybe if you paid a exhaust shop to cut it down....would be just as easy to purchase a new one and sell that one on CL... Just my .02

Do they sell and x pipe that fits with long tubes? This is gonna sound stupid is it equal or unequal length headers or both and what are your thoughts on them as far as performance & sound?

Just go with LT they are all the same length. They do sell mid pipes (x,h, and pro chamber) for LT headers. Performance and sound will r better out of LT...sounds amazing.
