so i'm starting to "refresh" my 351w which has long tubes on it right now but i'm thinking of switching to shortys b/c of some clutch cable problems i have w/ the LT's
being too close to the cable. how much hp will i lose if i switch and is there another way or a better fitting LT for my 351w? maybe a longer clutch cable...

you will lose about 5 to maybe 10 hp, depends on what shorties.

Since you have a manual tranny, most other long tubes will go in if you wanted to try another for a better fit.
You'll lose maybe 5-10 hp, mainly on the top end. But you could get some large diameter shorties to make up a little bit.

i really dont want to switch to shorty's. i just saw a set of hooker LTs that look like they might work and not burn my clutch cable, it looks from the pic that the first two primaries turn imediately rather than come straight out a couple of inches (causing my cable to be too close for comfort) so i might try those, anybody used these?
