    Are there any downsides to having LT's on a allmost stock motor? What are
    the benefits compared to shorties. (I have full exhaust with CAI,Gears,Intake)
    Thanks,

    My motor is similar to yours, intake, exhaust and gears. I added LTs over my shorties and gained 8 tenths. I also added pulleys and swapped out the catted Mac H-pipe for a prochamber.
