Flow master makes a dual inlet muffler that I have seen used. The downside is, both inlets are on the same side. I'm not sure how much power is lost running 1 side in the wrong way, but I've seen it done.........

I don't know what buggies run, but Camaros used that type of muffler for a long time .

We just put a magnaflow on the prerunner and it is nice. IMO still a little loud but gives it a nice sound.

Also went with a Magnaflow... was "told" you lose between 3-4hp by the set-up... take that for what its worth.

A couple things occurred to me today. Dynomax used to make a system for Camaros that used two Turbo-Tubes (essentially chambered pipe) instead of the single muffler in the rear. It makes for a loud exhaust, but it sure does sound bitchin'. Also, Late model Corvettes use two really small mufflers with the inlet and outlet on the same side. Imagine what's pictured above with the muffler split in two right down the middle (vertically). They might be a little large for this application, but maybe they flow better? Personally, though, I'd take the 3-4 hp loss and run the single....

I've seen aftermarket replacements that are a bit smaller and with a single outlet.
