Default Longtube headers on 4x4?

Are there any major fitment issues with longtube headers on SWB 4x4's?
I know a new Y-pipe will be needed, but aren't sure of the routing, and location of the cat.

Or should I keep it simple and go with the Gibson shorties that I was looking at before?

Any insight is appreciated.

I like my Gibson Shorty headers, but that's me. Just follow the kiss system and all will be good.

longtubes fit fine. i have a quad cab 4x4, and the y-pipe is closer to t-case than id like. but thats only because im in the middle of getting everything back together.

I was looking at a pair of Pacesetter LT's and was told that the I.D was a wee bit too large. Long or short, I don't see any problems with anything fitting under the truck. But I'm also build duels out the side so everything will be out of the way for me.

the more exhaling the motor can do, means the more inhaling it can do. so long tubes can only set you up for better options in the future should you decide to add more ponies.

That is very true. I am getting an M1 soon and plan to add a new cam. LT's would make building the exhaust a lot easier, as well. BTW, your thread on cam's has been very helpful.

Ideally..... for a truck motor, you would indeed want smaller primaries than the Pacesetters...... (1.5 inch would be great) Trouble is, no one makes them any more.... Pacesetters are a good piece for price/performance.

When you get the exhaust all done, you need to get pics of what that looks like underneath for us.

OK, so LT's aren't going to be a fitment issue.
Does the cat remain in the same location, or is it pushed further back with the LT's and new Y-pipe?

Are there any other manufactures of LT's for our trucks, or is Pacesetter it?

From a daily truck performance standpoint (not racing), are the LT's (despite lager 1" primaries) going to be a better or worse option than the Gibson shorties with 1" primaries?

I plan adding FI Airgap, 52mm TB, HS1.7's, and SCT to what I already have.

the cat is pushed back about 12-18" from stock location, and post cat sensor wires will need to be lengthened.

the lt's will be a great addition to the parts youre planning to install.

pacesetter is the only company that makes lt's for our trucks.

I just ordered a set of OBX st for mine. 1 5/8 primary, I was thinking they would match better with the 2.02 heads. Anything has to be better then the stock manifolds, right?

Out of curiosity, is there an O2 sensor bung in both of the Pacesetter LT collectors?

Just hoping to get lucky... sensor comes with a bung, and welding will be happening anyway, so one more item is not biggie.
