    Okay, here's the deal, dropping in new 350 shortly to replace old 305. Current engine has y-pipe, single cat, single muffler, dual exhaust. I am considering going with true duals, but decent free-flowing cats cost $120 each. So, not including labor and pipe hardware, true duals would run me around $360. Single free flowing cat, single flowmaster, dual exhaust would run almost half that, $200.

    Is it worth the extra to go with true duals? Really?

    I have true duals with 2.5 inch pipe and a cat form summit on each side and it sounds cool as hell

    it makes my stocker sound like a built 350

    Not unless your building your 350 up. All the flow you need for a stock 350 is available in a y-pipe/single exhaust. I currently have too much flow with headers, no cats, duals with flows.
