Long tube

I'm interested in the street legality/streetability of a long-tube header system... does anybody know where i could find more information on these things? I've tried searching, both google, and camaro5... can't seem to get any hits on this specific topic.

Most likely not. I looked into it in the past. I know JBA makes shorty headers and long tubes that are legal too. Not yet for camaro. Anyone else, not likely legal :(

Is there a advantage/disadvantage to shorty headers/longtube?

Maybe we'll at least have the JBA option eventually though.

Are we talking 5 or 10Hp....or 15-20Hp. Because it would depend on the price to even make the horsepower worth it...to me.

You shouldn't have any issues with getting LT in OK. In California all the hippies make it very hard for them to mod cars. So they have to go with shorties.

Oh and American Racing Headers FTW!

LOL...yeah, It is no problem doing pretty much anything to your cars around here. I would rather go with LTs but my concern is if they are more expensive and you only gain a very small ammount....then you see where I'm at. Like everyone else I just want the bang for the buck.

The shorties show smaller gains than the LTs. Not sure what LS3 get with LT. But, with a tune and LT you should get a considerable gain. I would think 20+RWHP at least. I am sure someone will come in with more accurate HP #'s.

Yeah, that sounds pretty good. I am curious to see what people are gaining with their add-ons. Thanks

It depends on your car. Stock, long tubes won't make that much more at least without a tune. If you get cams, heads, supercharger etc.. and tune long tubes plus appropriate midpipe and catback make pretty big gains over stick exhaust.
