Mid-pipe exhuast?

My 08 GT sounds great but I always like to tinker around. Just wondering what would happen if I took the O/R H pipe I have and cut the part that links them together off. Then welded a curved pipe in to match the rest of the pipe? Sound changes and performance changes? I don't know if its true or not but I thought that pypes made a set like this with mid welded mufflers.

The connection in the middle helps even out the pressure and in theory provides less resistance than two separate pipes. While one bank of cylinders fires it can take advantage of splitting the pressure at the connection in the exhaust while there is no exhaust pulse on the other side. Now the pulse pressure can escape through two outputs rather than one.
