Exhaust Question

I was told that I have a dual exhaust setup, which is causing the car to lose some power by the way it's is set up.

I have the 3.8 but right after the pumpkin, the pipe comes to a "T" where it splits off into 2 seperate pipes with 2 magnaflow mufflers and 2 tailpipes. I was told that I would have better flow with just one pipe, one muffler and one tailpipe. The same person also said that once all the stuff on the engine is completed, I should run true duals all the way back.

It doesnt matter because once the motor has more power, I will run true duals on it, but am I really losing horsepower with the pipe splitting at a "T"?

My other home:

'96 Ford Tbird 3.8 SC
'06 Chrysler Sebring "Vert 2.7

how big is your piping? and no, you prolly aren't losing power

my stock z34 had exhaust like the tbirds do stock.. the 2 - 1 - 2 setup.. from the factory

If it is stock, no you aren't losing any h.p. It doesn't sound stock. 3.8 l's didn't have split piping. V8'a do.
