Mid pipe mod

So a few months ago I put on a MAC pro chambered mid pipe for shorty or stock headers. I also had a floater series 40 exhaust installed at the same time, love it!!
My question is... I wanna instal long tubes instead. Would I be able to mod the mid pipe ( cut the length of the pipe) to the long tubes or should I buy a new MAC mid pipe.

Thoughts

Is it worth buy a new mid pipe to have long tube vs shorties?

You're going to have to buy LT and a new midpipe which depends on the brand will cost you around 7-800 bucks. 20hp gain in some cases and better sound

I agree with Venom, it will be easier to just buy the new pipe. Just make sure the LT Header and midpipe match each other (Brand).
