You shouldn't do LTs anyway since you are in Cali... Get the x pipe, with the headers you will have to get CARB legal ones to pass the visual, and those are hard to find and super expensive. Make sure the catted X pipe is also CARB legal, if they are not you will fail the visual inspection during smog.

I'm seeing a nice set of tuned shorty headers can net you around 10rwhp, but what's the hp gain from an H to X-pipe? I thought it was just a sound difference.

There is a very small difference between H to X pipes, H pipes will usually net you a little more torque than hp, and x pipes will give a little more horsepower. But its such a small difference that its better to just judge it off sound.

Ah, I see. That makes sense.
