I currently have Mac equal length shorty headers with their cat'ed h pipe and mufflers/straight tips. I'm thinking of changing over to their long tubes and their 'off-road' h-pipe. There shouldn't be anything else I need to change correct? What other things should I need to know?
Will my check engine light be on if I get rid of my cats?

well, the check engine light shouldn't go on if you have no cats, just make sure to have the little pipe thats connected near the middle of the H-pipe attached. Its an air injection tube or something? At least that's what happened to mine, i had that removed check engine light came on, then i connected it and it was fine.
13-20 hp gain is what it's claimed from stock to long tube headers, then about 10-15 from stock to o/r h-pipe. will be a slight increase in performance perhaps not the most noticeable, but it will sound quite a bit different. I'd say you'd get around 20 hp +-
