wouldn't it be alot cheaper just to put a muffler on your 5" system?

Hmm well about 10 yrs ago I had dual straight pipes on my turbo integra and i ended up putting mufflers on right away(magnaflow actually) and it made them alot quieter. Now maybe that was because the engine was a 4 banger but just saying when i had mufflers put on it did quiet them up. Good luck

The interior noise with mine isn't too bad at all with the muffler.

Duals would probably be a good solution if you're towing - the 5" can get pretty aggressive under load especially on the LB7. If you have any questions on 4" systems, any of the supporting vendors should be able to give you a hand or give us a call. Good luck

the problem is that i dont think mbrp's duals will fit around my B&W hitch as where the banks duals will fit cause my muff shop guy just did one on PSD and it fit really good and sounded really good.

i just got a great idea for my own custom dual set-up let me know if you guys think it work or not. Cutting my tailpipe where the straight is welded and making a 5in "T" pipe, then getting (2) 90* elbows to bring the exhaust back then from there running pipe to (2) 45* elbows to get the exit. i dont know exactly if it will work or not but let me know what your thoughts are!
