X1 I want to know the difference between short and long tubes also. I know the long tubes won't pass inspection in California.

Thanks man, the compliments help me justify spending all of my money! I got the suspension stuff pretty much nailed down(need some Timbren bumpstops and a ubolt flip kit only), just need to work on some engine performance mods now.

short tubes are emission legal because they weld up to your existing forward cats (hence, not removing any cats), long tubes remove the front cats and that is why they don't pass emissions. Less gain from short tubes but still an improvement.

EDIT: Oh and for the stickers just send a message to TcBob with your name/address and he will get one sent out to you.

Message from a tech at Doug Thorley:

Most people say that the shorty will give you more bottom end due to retaining a small amount of backpressure. The cons are they are a weld on app versus the long tube which is a bolt on.

Long tubes perform better at high rpm range like when street racing. I am waiting for a reply for the differences they note in acceleration with shorties vs long tubes.
