headers? will they do what I want?

I have a 06 street gglide with just a 88 in her. It has a stage one done to so I am told. I have a set of rinehart mufflers on there but not sure what kind as they were in it when I bought the bike. My question is how do I get this thing louder. I been on you tube and cant seem to find what I want. However I talked to a few guys and they tell me to switch my stock front pipes to a set of true duals. will this give me the bark I am looking for. dont get me wrong bike sounds ok but I want it to bark like my old fat boy did with my vance and hines pipes, Is this even possible. if I switch the front pipes to dauls can I use the same mufflers I have now? as always cash is somewhat of a issue. Talked to the dealer and they are trying to sell me a entire system 1600.00 lol NOT. They want me to go 4" mufflers and true duals. any help or input would be great

A header eliminates the crossover. The crossover allows for the exhaust pulses from one cylinder to be distributed and muffled by two mufflers to meet the EPA's 84 dB rating requirements.

Adding the headers isolates each cylinder and the end result is a slightly more "choppy" sound and a louder sound with the pulse now going through ONE muffler, and not through two.

Check out the special a few guys just snagged here with the Rineharts full system at half price.

Yeah, I got in on that del. Them true duals will make your man parts wiggle, and it will keep your right leg much cooler.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

If you are going true duals, the V&H big shot true duals are less than $700 for everything and they absolutely BARK. As loud as my thunderheader, but much deeper and more crisp sounding due to the duals as opposed to the 2/1.

If you sell the Rhineharts for a couple hundred the conversion could be pretty reasonable.
