I dont know if those will work or not. I run the banks 3" tubes for the lb7 and they can be bought for half the price of the afe stuff.

Will changing to the banks tubes help. If so what do they help on, EGT's, miliage, or power.

Banks will sell just the tubes but when I just bought mine I got whacked $32.00 shipping on a 5 lb part. See the vendor "MREEVES" on the dp.com, he will sell them much cheaper and not dick you around on the shipping charges. Oh, and when you buy from Banks they will clog your email and mailbox with junk you will never need.
