ya i only have 32's but they still did some damage performance wise. Can't wait to get the short tubes and maf cal installed to really feel some power and hopefully wake up my intake and muffler (at 2525) some more

still ended up going with the long tubes. Found a guy on XRU who was letting his JBA LT go for $250 , never installed. Hit up gadget and got the rear o2 sim and gaskets. All comes out to $420 shipped.

I know the OP went with some LTs, but the other factor in ST or LT decision is that the 09+ stock exhaust manifold was redone a bit going from a log to more of a tube manifold. I "have read" that the 09+ manifold flows better then the pre-09, but not sure how that affects the ST/LT dyno pulls. I would assume that the deltas in the curves is less, but definitely not sure by how much.

How much does a 5 pound increase in torque translate to an increase in towing capacity?

Any increase of power or torque will not increase towing capacity.

just get the long tube's. You DO NOT feel the low end loss with a stock y-pipe. My area (SW PA and WV) is literally all hills, curves, and shit roads and I def have more power to climb these hills now, even in higher gears, than I did before.

Also after you pay for the install of the short tubes their the same price. Unless you get the stock manifolds off yourself and take it to a shop to be welded, but then if you ever have a leak, you gotta take them off again to get touched up since its prob unwise to weld with the sensors in there
