I've had both setups. The big single attracted a lot of attention and a lot of people say it reminded them of a Supra. I currently have two large duals and it goes better with the look I want.
After reading everyone's post I'm leaning towards the single side, but my only problem is covering that extra hole. Im assuming I would have to re-paint the rear bumber after adding the "cover up" - Bondo?... unless their is a better way. Most of the single exhaust set ups Ive seen still have the hole Not classy at all.. I would love to see your dual exhaust set up

I have a single and did nothing with "the hole" It doesnt scream out that something is missing, nor do I much care.

Ive seen someone use a piece of color-matched vinyl laid over the area to mask it.

I always hated how the srt4 neon had dual exhaust... just to name one instance... but... new sti, new evo, etc... all have duals and its stupid. if you run a turbo, why would you ad an extra pipe on somewhere.

i have the Apex'i GT spec on mine and love the way it looks. With the stock cat hooked up it was very civilized and quiet both while cruising and when boosting. Put an HKS midpipe on the other day and it's much deeper and sounds nasty when i lay on it!

Took me a few days to decide, BUT, I Going with the dual set up Definitely LOOKS better in my opinion. Im looking for the classy look. Im going to keep everything stock except the mufflers and tips - everything else will remain the same so it shouldn't be loud at all. I'll post a pic once it's done.

Single exhaust looks and sounds better in my opinion.

well heres my input: i made my exhaust out of 300 series stainless steel and it sounds amazing! its pretty quiet at idle too which i love. imo go with single. it will sound amazing and the hole on the other side of the bumper really doesnt look that bad not being filled in. just my .02. i went with a 3 inch straight back btw

Nice, I'm running stock exhaust right nw dual, I've seen the dual tanabe touring muffler set up which I like the way it looks, bt I'm trying to decided whether to go Tanabe, Megan, or borla as for
Mufflers and to spend 700. To go single or 1300 to go dual. r yu still running a twinturb set up?

IMO.....the duals looks clean, mean and sound "quieter". The single is more drag/street. Depends what u prefer. 1jz bpu exhaust sounds good with both. Its up to u. 313sc3 sets an example

I agree about having singles. But yeah I have a concern about the gap if one of the sides of the exhaust tips is left out, is there anything similar to this for the SC?
