No. Shorty's wont do much compared to stock. Now, replace your driveshaft with a one piece aluminum driveshaft and you will definitely pick up some torque. We run the Boss and love it. Boss IM+ 3:73 gears + one piece DS = badass

Its possible just depends. There has big gains showed when replacing the stock ones with the kooks 1 7/8 shortys on the single hellion kit. So it may help slightly being NA.

I assumed you were considering shorty's because you are keeping your cats. That is why I dont think shorty's with cats will make near as big a difference than a DS will.

We run a Dynotech Aluminum Driveshaft and really like it. It is a 3.5" DS so clearance is a lot better than a 4" DS that some sell.
