You will not see any HP gains with just cat back but the tone of the exhaust will be a lot better and a little louder. In my opinion i would go with the duals vs the single.

if you are going to waste 1000 on a single in/dual outlet muffler dont do it.

a true dual set up from headers back with muffler/pipes and tips will be 500 at most then a shop can weld it up for a couple of hundred bucks. FLow much better.

Honestly I cant see spending 1000 bucks on just a cat back set up especially when its a fake dual set up. Here goes my long tubes with a magnaflow 3 inch custom cat back set up. Total cost for headers and exhaust less than 950 bucks. (btw i have for sale the 3 inch cat back set up in the below vid for 125 bucks) BTW this is a single inlet/outlet magnaflow and just listen to the sound ;)





Now here is the cost on a nice set up if you want to do a single inlet/dual outlet set up

ok 93 shipped from ebay for muffler
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MAGN...007QQitemZ170115340012QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWD1V

then you need about 4 of these (just to be safe which will be 150 shipped)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/3-45...1QQihZ003QQcategoryZ33633QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


then tips 4 inch end tip 66 for 2 shipped
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Magn...003QQitemZ130123432172QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWD1V

or if you want 3.5 inch out let tips (60 shipped)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Magn...003QQitemZ130123432138QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWD1V


So total cost like 300 bucks then add brackets which a shop will have like 20 more. labor to weld it all up 200-300 at most. So its up to you man. Even a single 3 inch set up would be better flow than cutting it up into dual 2.5 outlets from a singel 3 inch inlet.

If I did it again I would go with headers and a single out or true duals.

I'm not so sure I agree with you. Here is a video from WBH SS. http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y3/1bernie1/?action=view&current=e946eac5.flv

He's not a member here yet, but he will be after I see him tomorrow. He has the SLP cat back with duals out (dual valance came with it).

Don't shoot me because this link is to another board but it's the only way I could show this to you. Check out his numbers before and after his few mods. Damn!!! http://forums.trailvoy.com/showthread.php?t=27138

BTW his tune was done by Jeff Creech at Carolina Auto Masters.

I think you system is bad ass and I just did not have the time to deal with anyone custom fabricating my system! I really would perfer true duals but I did not want to loose the spare tire!

I guess for a bolt on system it is great and what I wanted!
I like the "looks like it was made with it" factor!:coolthumb:

125 shipped? how loud is that exhaust inside the truck and is it a straight bolt up or would i need to take it to a shop?

you would need one part from ebay which is like 50 bucks. A shop would prob charge 100-150 to weld it all up. I could do it for like 150 shipped to you and its not that bad inside as long as you dont have long tube headers then it soulds like a beast.
