Question What to do? =S little help please

I have a stock '03 coupe w/ a k24a4, and I want your opinions on what mods would go great with my accord.

I'm set on getting a Skunk2 MegaPower Header for the K-series but I'm not sure what exhaust to go with. I'm thinking of going with GReddy's Evo2, but its only got one outlet. The problem is, I want to get an OEM lipkit, and to my knowledge, it has cutouts for 2 exhausts. I'm really set on getting the lipkit, but if I decide on getting the Evo2 exhaust its gonna make my car look pretty stupid. Is there a part I can buy to allow me to have dual exhausts, or another alternative I can turn to? It doesn't really matter to me if the 2nd exhaust actually works, I just want it to look good with my lipkit.

Future mods: DC Sports Strut Bars, Exedy Stage 2 cerametallic clutch, Skunk2 Cams, Cam gears, intake manifolds, fuel rails, throttle bodies, and upgraded valvetrain

To get your dual exhaust just get a Y pipe to slpit into two seperate exhaust pipes like you see on the V6 Accord.

just get the greddy exhaust for the v6 and take it to an exhaust shop to make it fit...it will be more cost effective then getting the one for the i4 and then still having to take it to the shop and have them add a y- pipe to it and add another muffler 2 it

i would get the headers u plan on getting 1st and doing the exhaust at the same time so that everything fits perfectly, and what ever dosent they can make it fit at the shop

So if I do go to a shop to get it done, would there be cutting involved? And another question, I've heard that when you split the exhaust, you lose HP and TQ, is that true, and if so what can I do about it?

^ yea there will be some cutting, more then likely the flange since the flange on the v6 is different then the i4 and the will weld on the correct flange so that the headers connect to the exhaust

as far as hp and tq loss, u will loose a couple tq down low and ur powerband will change slightly, u will gain more hp up top but its slightly u prob wont even notice it, not much u can do.

Is there anything I can do to NOT lose TQ because to me, TQ is WAY more important than HP. Our speed limits up here in Canada is 100kmph or 60mph and cops are pretty strict up here especially when it comes to racers, so to me its more about acceleration than top speed.
