whos got it done?im goin for it,2.5 inch from cats back to x pipe, and a dual in/out cherrybomb vortex, then 2 feet of pipe and dumped just in front of the axle, how was the power difference? i got a diablo on 87 tune and a cold air intake to go on so hopefully this will free up some power. if you ditched the factory y in place of an x show me some pics..here's a crude paint drawing of what im lookin to do, you get the idea2010 silverado WT, 4.8lt,3.42's,came with nothing, goodies include, 33" pro comp tires,ready-lift level kit, MBRP Exhaust,bull-bar with 6inch hella 500's and dezee step bars.upgraded to white bumper corners with fogs,chrome grill,mirrors and doorhandles and a color matched A.R.E roof level Cap.

Is it true duals if the pipes connect via and X/H pipe or two in two out muffler?When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

x pipe after cats, and a dual in dual out muffler, i dont see the need for 2 mufflers when its a straight through design...true duals mean you have a dedicated pipe for each side of the motor the x pipe just balances exhaust flow from each side of the engine.

I thought True-Dual was 2 of everything and they didn't crossover???
and sents I was about to post close to the same thing whats the difference of a mufflers Configuration? dose it matter what I use? I found center/center cheaper in price then off/off.

This is just my opinion, but I always thought "true duals" includes two mufflers. Now days a lot of newer trucks are runnnig a dual in/out muffler stock. If your going to do "true duals", you should to it the true way.(again this is just my opion)

True duals are over rated I think, yeah, it's cool to say you have it, but in all honesty, it doesn't matter, if you have a nice free flowing exhaust, then one muffler works fine. Plus, using one muffler makes things quieter, so you can actually have a conversation on the highway.1994 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext Cab 350 cuin TBI in dark Chevy blue

one muffler with two 2.5 inch pipes will flow just fine...its a straight through, im ditching the y because its just not effient enough, and my last truck i had duals without an x and it sounded like crap, after the x it was much better and a touch quieter, im not lookin for really loud, just want a little extra performance, between the exhaust cai and diablo i should be happy with the end result, just wish the torque management would piss off a little
