exhaust ..cant decide

ok I have a 06 street glide, going with the blacked out look. I am having a hard time picking a exhaust system. I like em to sound mean and choppy... I am kinda of leaning towards the 2 into 1 thunder header but like the look of duals better so I am still on the fence. wanted to know if anyone had any input on true duals over the thunder 2 into 1. just looking for any comments or input from anyone who has either system

I have Python true duals and V&H twin slash 4" rounds on my 08 FLHTCU. Love the look, gets ride of that stupid looking crossover pipe that heats your leg up on the stock system, and the sound It's fantastic, when I ride a I can hear both pipes behind In stereo now! It sounds like a Harley is supposed to. Everyone says my bike sounds great. As for 2-1 pipes I just don't think they belong on a bagger IMO.

Thunderheader makes a false 2 into 1. You get the 2 into 1 performance, and there is a false pipe for the look.

Plus you will get that Thunderheader sound.

Dont the true duals (2 individual pipes) give the most in "choppy" sound ?
2 into 1 or 2-1-2 will give better HP usually but for sound 2-2 has got it going.
No ?
