dual gt takeoffs vs single flowmaster american thunder

which one sounds better and how much more power will i actually get if i go for duals instead of just single exhaust?

also my car is completely stock right now, and on youtube some of the mustangs with either dual gt takeoffs or single a/t without a cai and a tuner sound really raspy and not deep at all...does a cai and a tuner really effect your sound that much?

thanks

IMO, go for the GT takeoffs with an H pipe. GT takeoffs have a great tone without any drone. You can expect to pay around $300, including all parts, installation and labor, very reasonable and your best bang fpor the buck.

One of my neighbors went with the Flowmasters and his car sounds like a pickup truck with a leaky muffler.

Do you have a V6 or a V8? From what I have read a single aftermarket Muffler like the Flowmaster AT will add about 10hp, duals will add almost nothing. A CAI and Tune will Improve the sound of any exhaust system.
I still have a brand new in the box Flowmaster AT axel back muffler that I have'nt put on yet, Im going to do it this week finally, befor Summers almost over to see for myself how it sounds. I've been having too much Fun listening to the JLT CAI sound with the ALL OUT Tune that for now it has been enough for me and sounds great. But Duals will be on eventually
