Default Fuel tubing

Quick question- What will happen to an engine if you shorten the exhaust tubing from 8 inches to 5 inches. My engine was tuned really well with the long tubing and I shortened it up but havnt had a chance to run it since I did that. Just curious of what to expect???

The shorter the fuel length the easier the pressure/fuel will flow through. Do not expect much but the engine could run a tiny bit richer.
