Woah !!! sorry for not using the technical lingo for you pal................but I say it'* Dual Exhaust and it just for looks for it sure does look nice. It'* gonna be nice this weekend so I'm gonna clean up my car real nice and snap a few pictures and have them up soon. But it does even out the back of the car and makes it stand out more.

Dual exhaust can be that too. Dual exhaust from the headers isn't going to gain you anything on a bonneville anyways. Nearly ALL v8'* get the most power from an xpipe setup anyways. If sound/exhaust is coming from two pipes it'* got my vote.

Thanks...................yeah that is my view too. The sound from these mufflers is great. It has a low growl to it. It is nice. I wish I could get a sound clip but I don't know how. I'm just a poor latino boy But I will get those pictures as soon as I can.

I think a cross over pipe on a true dual exhaust is more for noise reduction than for flow.

That'* it, The more cylinders, the better the backpressure helps the opposite banks. Dyno proven in Hot rod.
