Potential Horsepower Gain of Long Tubes with Factory Cats?

I have read about the considerable power gains from long tube headers on these trucks. However, I am curious as to how much of those gains may be attributed to the additional exhaust flow of an off road y-pipe or high flow cats? I have been considering installing LTs, but I would be reusing my stock converters, whether in a shortened factory Y or welded into an O/R Y. How much power do you guys think could be gained from LTs while retaining factory converters?
