Dual exhaust wont make a difference over a single exhaust. It'* been proven on 1000HP Supra'*, they can either run dual 3" or a single 4" pipe, and they make the same power with both, so just use the single 4" pipe and then make it titanium to make it even lighter.

Hector was only using that as an example. He knows more about our exhaust than all of us put together.

Stick with the stock layout, no bigger than 2.5" two into one, but if you insist on the true dual idea, you better drop each side to 1.75" at least. Your money. There will be alot of custom work to do, as you'll have to dump the crossover pipe and custom pipe from each manifold. If there'* room to get down the firewall with 2 pipes.

"True dual" actually hurts, especially with lower count of Cyls, you don't have all the other cyls helping eachother out, and it sounds bad. Some years of the Viper didn't have a crosspipe, and they sounded like dual whiney inline 5'*.... An H pipe gives the best of everything if you are looking for "true Dual" Pointless on our cars, just get a single in, dual out flowmaster, and sound/exhaust will come from both sides.
