Default True dual exhaust conversion.

I am not really familiar with exhaust system even though I've been doing a lot of research. I have a 2007 v6 and wanting to do a custom dual exhaust. I was going on the line of a x pipe catted , with flowmaster 10s or slp loudmouth s. Now this is the part I am confused. The actual dual exhaust coming out the back . What do i have to buy or do? And btw I'm trying top do this without spending a lot of money

Well it's actually not the bumper. I did a bit of more research and I came across cat back or axel back. Now do i need this even though I'm getting x pipes?

DO NOT GET AN X-PIPE!!!! It will sound like CRAP!!!

What you need is axle-back AND the driver side GT mid-pipe (over-axle pipe).
Any shop can make it all fit for you.

The rear bumper cover will need to be cut out on the driver side for the additional muffler. there are templates online (such as on the pypes site) that can help get the cutouts done properly.

Search around, too, there are many many threads on this subject.

A good muffler shop can install an H pipe, the slp muffs you want
and the over the axle pipes for you on the cheap.
Other than that, you can spend your hard earned bucks on a complete
bolt on system.
So pay for the fabrication work with muffs you buy in an unproven installation
and cross your finger for the resulting sound or buy the complete bolt on kit
that has been tried and proven to sound good with no drone.
Bout the same price either way...
