Default Should i keep single or dual exhaust on my sc300

Whats uP CL. I need help figuring out if I should go SINGLE or DUAL exhaust for my 92 sc300. Right now I have a 1JZGTE (automatic)swap, Greddy Blow off valve, K&N air filter, with stock mufflers, pipes, CAT, and silencers. I've been told do a single exhaust, and also been told to stick with dual exhaust. I would love the feedback on both aspects including the difference in cost, the best piping, and the best brands for my engine. I am leaning more towards the DUAL side, but I need the facts on both before I make a decision. Also, I want my car as quiet as possible - is that asking too much. Any help, or input would be great.

Single flows really well but tends to have a drone sound to it. Dual flows really well and tends to be much more quiet. What are you looking for? Then make your decision.

age old question...
it's like asking if you should get a spoiler or remain spoilerless
I'd say keep the single. cover up the notch for the dual exhaust

I have a single exhaust and I personally love it. Heres an example of mine:

Burger King or Wendys?
HRE or Volks?
To be or not to be?
Paper or plastic?
Plain or salted?
Hit it or wouldn't hit it?

Pick whatever you like. Either one can drone. Either one can be loud. Either one "sounds better"

I personally am staying dual

if you want your car to be as quiet as possible, it sounds like you already have the best exhaust installed.
