Sound the best = Duals, with 3" tips.

Perform the best = 2.75" single exit exhaust with a 2.75" or 3" tip.

Backpressure is your friend on a N/A motor. Duals will give you more top-end than a single, but your bottom-end will suffer quite a bit.

Ask me how I know...I've had six exhaust setups on my truck.

I'm going with 2.5" single from right behind the last cat, out...and stock location with a 3.5"x18" 45degree tip. I'm going with either Flowmster Super 40 (have GREAT experience with those in my Chevy) or DynaMax ultra flow oval....only $20 after $50 rebate with Summit, to see how i like. it might be too loud b/c it IS a rave muffler, but who really cares, louder IS better. weekafter next will be the install date.
