Explanation

Hey,

I'm not the foremost person but i do know some stuff.

True Duals is exactly what it means, two separate pipes going from the headers into separate cats, and muflers, then there is what I have, which is single in dual out which uses that Y pipe you were asking about which does exactly what it looks like, takes to downpipes and connects them into a single. hopes this helps

you can not have true dual's on a 4 banger, because you only have one exhaust manifold. What you can do is get a single into dual muffler and just run 2 pipes out the back. it will give you the look you want.

Y, X, and H pipes are used when you have a V6 or V8 truck which have two exhaust manifolds.

If you are using a single input catalytic converter and muffler, a Y-Pipe is bolted up to the two exhaust manifolds and merges the exhaust stream into a single pipe. You can use a single input/double output muffler to achive two pipes at the back of the truck if you wish.

X and H pipes are used if you are using dual pipes with two mufflers and two catalytic converters throughout the system - a junction is run between the two pipes in the shape of an X or H to help balance out the pressure in the pipes.

In your case, a single input/dual output muffler is all that is required for double exhaust. Any competent exhaust shop should be able to get you that type of muffler and do the fabrication for the pipes.
