Default dual exhaust

i am going to redo my exahaust(whenever i get the cash) and i was wondering if making it dual exhaust will increase performace? I was thinking that it would because of less air resistance and i defintly like the look of dual over single but i wanted to know for sure?

On a SC'd 3800 it may increase HP, but on a NA'd 3800 it may even DECREASE HP!

I don't know if dual would be better then single.. as Mighty Mouse ( Rat ) says.. it depends on */C or N/A ..

I think it depends more on the restriction the muffler causes internally.. the dual is just a look cool feature.. and don't think theres a real performance gain unless you're runnin true duals.

I was talking about "True Duals" BTW! The only way it will work if you actually run 2 smaller diameter pipes from front-to-back attached to identical twin mufflers. Something like this: http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/st...roducts_id=100 would get you started. You can either run 2 CATs or a single one then split it from there straight to the back of the car.

80 Series is one badace sounds, I've heard them on the street.

Without a cat (and if you don't have any resonators) it can get a little rappy and smelly. The choice is yours, choose wisely my son.

IMHO

1. Keep the cat, go high flow
2. dump the resonator.
3 Muffler it out with a Flowmaster or Maganflow.

0.02 cents
