    They are mid tubes. I knew a lot of guys that ran them years ago, before long tubes were affordable. They make good gains but now that you can get pacesetters and Hookers pretty cheap I see no reason to go with mids.

    They can be a pain to get in like long tubes. Advantage is there almost never a k member clearance issue. Long tube vs Mac mid:

    I ran MACs back in the day. Super-easy install (both dropped in from the top...just remove the pass-side valve-cover), great-fit and great clearance. Do NOT use the MAC cats...they suck. With the factory cats welded in the MAC Y-pipe, I gained about 18-20rwhp. You can find great prices on them in the classified section...

    Yep. Did the MAC install on rhino-ramps in a single-car garage. The only time I was under the car was to remove/install the Y-pipe...

    Would It Be Easyer Or Just As Simple To Put In From Bottom

    It would probably a little harder from the bottom, but why would you want to do that anyway? Even with access to a lift, it is always easier to work from the top...gravity.
