Dual exhaust for GS

I really like the look of cars with dual exhaust pipes that exit through each side of the bumper, and was toying with the idea of trying this on my 06 GS.

I assume I would have to find an after market bumper with dual openings and then have a muffler shop fabricate some kind of split type setup to make it work. It's mainly for looks, if I get any extra performance from it, that's all the better.

Feel free to give advice on how to accomplish it, or if you think it's a jackass idea, I welcome those opinions also.

I think it would look sweet. but if your going for simplicity and within normal people price range (like me ) then i would just buy a axle back exhaust. Will prolly give same power boost and sound just as nice. But i do like the idea of the dual exhaust look!! Post pics if you end up doing this!

This is just my opinion but i've always hated the sound of 4 cylinder with dual exhaust. I mean there are some out there that may have a pleasant "tone" but maybe I'm jsut used to hearing a v8. But they do add a more symmetrical look to the car.

my suggestion is to get an 09 GT rear bumper. all the aftermarket bumpers for our car with duals just look too ricy IMO. this is my GS with the stock GT bumper and duals.

Thanks for the reply, that's exactly what I'm trying to achieve. I rarely see any GT's around here and never noticed they have a dual rear exhaust. You are right about the after market ones, they don't look near as good as the stock version. Where did you get yours, and how much did it cost?

My dad has a 2010 Altima, with a 2.5L and duals, and it doesn't sound much different from my stock GS, when you get on it. Of course the type of muffler and exhaust piping can make a lot of difference in how duals sound with any given 4 cylinder. And of course everyone has their own idea of what sounds good or bad when it comes to exhausts. However, you are right, It would be a good idea for me to hear one before I take the plunge.

It all depends on your setup/mods. You can throw a y-pipe with a glasspack and itll sound pretty good.

Was wondering how the piping is setup. I am assuming I could have a muffler shop hook the whole thing up for me. You wouldn't happen to have a sound clip of your mod. It would be very helpful in making a decision.

I was also debating the duals and one way to achieve this would be to purchase a hi flow muffler at a local parts store and attach it right after the cat followed by a y-pipe and then run the pipes through the factory route just on opposite sides, keep in mind that I'm no expert and I have no conclusive results on the gains or sound outcome, just presenting ideas to those who are on the same path as mine with well a definite budget.

IMO the best option for this would be to buy a muffler like the sti's that mounts sideways and has the two tips that come out of it
