a nicely built single exhaust will flow very well also though. i do agree though in the right aplacation a ual setup will be better but both have there place. i had a nice single 3in system on my 86 k10 with longtubes and a straight though style muffler with dumped tail pipes and it worked great. had a single 3.5in system on my 82 trans am and it preformed much better than the dual 2 1/2 setup it had before plus it was quieter with the single exhaust with the cutout closed which was nice sometimes lol.

I've run duals and singles as well as different headers. On my trucks I have always liked single exhaust and will never buy headers that are not cereamic coated. One of the hold ups on getting my choptop on the road is saving for headers. 2-1/8 inch primary, ceramic headers aren't cheap. This is on a well built 427, I wouldn't drop too much $ on a stock built engine but I would get coated headers anyway
