Default on the fence, shortys or LTs

Im like seconds from pullin the trigger on some headers to install, I know the benefits of LTs and blah blah. I was searching through the forum and read something about a magnaflow y pipe that works amazing with the bbk shorties, anyone have a part number on that? and those of yall runnin shorties, did you tell a difference in power? As for the long tubes, I honestly like my exhaust how it is, and I dont wanna monkey around with the cats. Suggestions thanks! plus if anyones got videos of some shorties please post...there isnt too much that i could find on youtube

Mag Y = 10778

Do what you can afford! Shorties and a Y pipe are still a great mod for the money!

I have really considered shortys as well, I just have people tell me they're not worth the money. I know I can't afford LTs though cause I'm saving for a supercharger let me know how they work out, I'd like to get some as well.

Glad I could help! If you compare hp for dollar, shorties will win...at least for the 4th gens. I know third gen trucks have more options / cheaper options for longtubes. And either way you go, make sure they are ceramic coated!

the way I see it, by the time I get done monkying around with moving the cats, and completely re-doing my exhaust the price will be up there since nothing anymore is cheap. With shorties, I can simply bolt them in.

Yep, I know exactly what you mean, I've already done work on my exhaust, I don't wanna have to redo it.

Have you found out what it sounds like? I really need to know if its gonna be annoying or super loud.

^^that's right. Shorties are more worth the money typically ($/hp wise). You may get around 10hp with shorties that cost a few hundred bucks and bolt right in, whereas you can get 25hp with longtubes that cost $1,000 and you have to modify your exhaust to work with them. Longtubes often bring problems such as egr issues and engine lights...these all can be worked out but typically you will spend thousands on a real nice longtube exhaust setup. I also plan on bolting in some shorties on my truck, and swapping the y pipe and muffler. Much easier and cheaper, and still a big gain over stock. Longtubes are definitely the way to go though for all out performance if you want and can do it.

well I love my current exhaust, it was on it when I purchased it. But its a straight pipe from the cat back...single 3 inch all the way out to a nice tip...to me it sounds amazing. Yall think I should throw in a magnaflow or something for some back pressure after I do the headers? Oh and I looked up that y pipe..that thing is small lmao!! does it really make that much of a difference? and does it bolt right in as well?

Don't worry about the back pressure, it's more of a myth than anything. As long as you stay within a reasonable pipe diameter you won't lose power due to not have back pressure. And a magnaflow is a straight through muffler anyway, so really wouldn't change back pressure much if at all. If you like your current setup then keep it. So do you have the factory y pipe? If you do then yes changing it to an aftermarket good y pipe will make a big difference, especially if you combine it with the headers.
