    MAC Longtubes and Mac Prochamber. I like. As many times as I've had them on and off...they still line up rather well.

    I've had them for 4 years now and probably 20,000miles. They come off the car probably 8-9 times in that time. I only have a problem with one port. Its not even that much of a problem really. They aren't pretty buy any means either. For the money, they're worth it.

    Mac longtubes with mac prochamber with flowmaster 30's dumped.... I originally had shorts and off road H pipe.... the difference is crazy. Much more torque down low. Mos tlikely from the longtubs and the sound is wicked.

    I had a set of 02 sensor extensions in my garage from my dad's old 95 so I used those. Longtubes are actually not too bad if you know where to come from. The drive side should go in first from the top...Then you'll have to jack up the engine and lean it to one side and put the passenger on...it took me and my dad about an hour and a half for both....but he's run longtubes on his cars for yrs so this is not the first time (nor will be the last) we've done this install.
