Y pipe alternative

So I'm doing my exhaust this month (work hours permit). I rear a lot about how a y pipe kinda sucks. And true dual is better. Is there a way to make this conversion on our cars?

What's the difference between a y pipe and true dual? What effects does a true dual have on performance / sound?

true dual cost more since you have to run double the piping .Each down pipe has its own muffler. So Eg. Pre-cat -> down pipe-> muffler x 2 for each bank.

does the dual start after the jpipe or just after the pre-cats? I always thought it was after the j-pipe but thinking back on it putting it after the precats/PCD and running true dual with an X pipe/H pipe somewhere in there actually sounds like it could help a lot on a bigger power car.

I don't think dual is worth extra cost and weight personally.

Just use a true merge collector.
