I never had a dual quiet pack, but I suffered thru a number of singles until I 
gave up on them. They all seem to suffer from the same 2 problems: Their 
connections to the lower heat exchangers keep coming loose, because the tubing 
is a bit too large, and they always hit the underside of the body where they 
exit.

As Bob already mentioned, they eliminate the rear heat exchangers, which means 
less heat, but that is seldom a problem for most of us. The bigger problem is 
the hoses that bypass the air to the lower heat exchangers. Those always manage 
to wear thru or fall off within a year.

The OE mufflers really can't be beat for durability and quality, but they ARE a 
bear to install. Good ones even incorporate equal length header pipes, but they 
don't all have this feature.
