You will need a shorty mid pipe if you go with long tubes. Full lenth mids are meant for exhaust with shorty or stock headers and the are too long to bolt up with the long tubes.

You'll need a short mid pipe with long tubes because long tubes are longer than stock manifolds

Yup, lt's require shorty mid pipe. Because the headers are longer and wont fit the regular midpipes.

Same as everyone else said, you will need a midpipe designed for long tube headers. If you're going to do the entire exhaust, you'll need the LT's, shorty mid pipe, and the catback.

I know the MAC Longtunes can fit autos, but I'm not sure about the BBK's

Is it just as good mixing headers and mids up or having the same brand for both, the people at American muscle say to keep it all the same so everything fits perfect .

They fit much easier and guranteed if you match brands, other will fit if you match lt's/shorty mid and shorty/regular mid but sometimes are harder fitment.

+1 Yeah brand matching is a good way to make sure that you get a good fit. BBK LTs with a BKK shorty Mid. Mac headers With Mac shorty mid.. etc.
