curious 
 whats the difference between that and the stock single exhaust (which I do 
 not know if its termed "quiet pack" as well)?
 
 Does it aid in performance?  Does it just make it noiser?
 
 Thanks!!!  >>

The dual quiet packs are more for performance (they breathe a little better), 
but they are also slightly louder than stock. The stock exhaust is a very 
well designed system, and IS tuned, which most people don't realise. They are 
very quiet though. Some people use them for looks though, while others think that 
the dual mufflers look better than a single quiet pack muffler (completely 
different from stock). One thing worth noting, the single and dual quiet pack 
mufflers use a header / extractor, and this does eliminate the pre-heaters found 
on the stock system. This means you're actually loosing some of the heating 
system when using this style of set up. I hope this helps.
