Going dual on my V6

Hey guys i know this is the last thing you want to see on the forums, another dual exhaust post, but i have one question. Ok so i've narrowed down my options to the Flowmaster American Thunder's and an H-pipe so now i'm looking at places to install them. Well i called one shop and it will cost me $300 there but they refuse to do the bumper cut which is not a big deal because i'm willing. Now it sounds like they will run an entire system by cutting out the Y-pipe and then doing the rest of the piping.

The second place i called the guy went more into detail telling me instead that a cheaper way he can do it which has the exact same effect will be to cut into the Y and attach the H. Which he says is the same effect. They will also cut the bumper for me.

So my question is will it really be the same effect, performance, and sound to cut into the Y?
OR
Should i go to the first shop and just cut my own bumper and have them cut out the Y?

I am not sure I understand what the second place means by cutting into the Y. Is he saying he is gonna do a y into an H? That doesn't sound right to me...

I know right. what he said was he was going to "cut into the Y" instead of removing in completely. So i'm not sure what he meant.

I think he means he's going to leave the front part of the Y (Like, from the manifold to the mid pipe) and then go from there. That would make it practically the same thing as long as they remember to connect the 2 pipes and not divorced duals.

I don't see anything wrong with that IF that is what he means.

Yeah i get what your saying. I did ask him 3 or 4 times if it will be true dual and he assured me it would.

what he means is he will put a Y after the current Y and split your single exhaust into a dual.

don't do this.

No because he told me he would add an H-pipe which would make what your saying impossible.

you can add an H pipe after the split.

saying you're going to add it doesn't say where he's going to add it.

To be honest, I have not seen a "H" pipe for our cars. X-pipes, but I haven't seen a H pipe for the 2005-2010
