    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?

    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
