Dual in and out mufflers, are they worth it?

I run dual in and dual out mufflers on most of my trucks because of the limited space. Most of them have the exhaust running down the passenger side so I see no reason for two mufflers when one would do the job. However, I am about to get yet another dual in and dual out for the Ranger I just acquired and I was thinking about using a dual in and single out this time. They are cheaper and I am running a stock 2.9. Also, I kick the pipe out right in front of the rear tire. So I am wondering if it is worth getting the standard dual in and out that I usually use.
Also, I have the same set up on our F250 with a 351. It is getting about time to put a new exhaust on it and I am wondering if that dual in and dual out is helping or hurting that V8.

it is common knowledge that free flowing exhausts on gasoline engines does not increase power

the only engines that benefit from free flowing exhausts are turbo diesel engines

While I agree a gas burner does require some back pressure, I know improved flow helps with performance.

It's a 2.9...how much "performance" do you really think you'll get? Keep your money and just drive the little puppy. Of course it's your money to throw away but noone will be impressed by a performance 2.9 Ranger.

Jeez, I knew someone would take that the wrong way. I am not even going to try and explain what I actually meant. I thought someone hear would get the gist of what I am saying without out a long explanation.

All anyone can go by is what you write. When we become mind readers we won't even need the forums. I actually think you should make yourself happy and do what you want. Good luck with all that...oh, and by the way, I didn't mean to offend, sorry....
