Single Exhaust vs. Dual Exhaust

I was just curious to what the feeling is by some of you guys on single or dual exhaust systems on the 7.3. I have a straight pipe 3 1/2" single exhaust but i was planning on going up to a straight 4" system. I've been told the duals sound great but are they worth it?

I think they sound pretty cool. I don't really know of the power gains, all makers claim diffrent numbers.

I looked into Dual a year or so ago and was told (someone who sells it) that there really is no gain...... But if you find out more info, please post it!!

Dual stacks look pretty good, but I think that duals which stay under the truck belong on a gasser. A single BIG hefty tip always gets my eyes...

i like how they look. i like things to be balanced, its part of my job. i also think they would help spread the noise to either side of the truck; another bonus! i can't see how they would be a power gainer any more than a shortened exahaust, since the flow is still restricted up to the muffler.

i loved the look and sound of the side exiting true duals on my 84 chevy truck. it will definitly be added when i get my diesel, even if not a power gainer....

I agree with adam a single does look good to me.. my preferance is a single stack on the passenger side but that's in the future for my rig for now it's a 4''turbo back silverline...

Well I'm not so much concerned about power gains because I think they would be minimal if any. I thinking of it just from a sound aspect. I was curious what it would sound like running 4" pipes with 5" or 6" tips coming out behind the rear tires. Has anyone seen anything like this?

I have a buddy who ran 5" all the way back and split it behind the rear axle out to 6" tips. It's going to be loud either way you go, only difference is it'l be either on one side of the truck or both.
