That's not really what they're for. Lol. They will change the sound, but more importantly they'll increase top end power. You x or h pipe and mufflers have more to do with sound, they too affect power though.

I'd make sure they'll even fit before you pay to have it done. You still owe even if they don't fit, they'll still want labor for taking it apart. Did you get a new mid pipe set? That won't work anymore either. Don't mean to rain on your parade, just don't want to see anyone get jacked.

I can't say that I noticed any difference going from a shorty to a full length with my 84. I'm not going to bother with my 88, unless it get's a stroker.....

Im looking for someone that currently has shortie headers and off road h or x that wants to replace it with lt and same style mid pipe. Id do free before and afters as long as it was the only change between the two sessions for an apples to apples comparison.

I only got my x pipe done, the shops in houston are very busy lol. I'm getting the LT's installed tomorrow. Just out of curiosity why won't LT headers not work without x pipe?

The old x pipe reached into the engine bay to connect the mufflers to the stock headers. The long tube headers move that connection point nearly 2 feet further under the car, so a shorter x pipe is needed to connect the headers and mufflers.
