Any soundclips of dual headers w/ a REAL dual exhaust and X pipe?

I've spent a lot of time searching the web, but haven't found a sound clip of a straight 6 (doesn't even have to be a Jeep, but I'd prefer if it was) with dual headers (3 cylinders into each collector) and a TRUE dual exhaust (i.e., **NOT** running both collectors into a "Y", then through a single mufller, and splitting again into 2 tips) with an "X" pipe and separate mufflers.

Anyone have a clip of that? I'd love to hear it.

A neighbor is giving me a good, running CJ-7 258 which I'm going to put a cam in, replace seals, etc and put into my '88 YJ w/ the 258.

I have been looking at the Clifford dual headers. I want a "different" sound, and not the "Flowmaster" sound. Splitting the exhaust and keeping it separate except for the X pipe should yield an exhaust note that you don't hear every day.

I've got a Suppertrap muffler on right now, and it's really quiet. And it has no end cap, just straight through. My cat may be clogged and cutting the sound, I'm not sure. I hope to be able to run another Suppertrap muffler for the dual exhaust. You can add or remove disks to tune the backpressure and sound, so at least I can dial the sound down if it is too loud with new cats and headers.

I'm not considering this for gas mileage. Any power gain would be a plus. Mostly, I want it to sound sweet (mellow and mean, but not raspy like a Flowmaster), and to be different than any other Jeep, or straight 6, that I've heard in the past.

Thanks for any clips, or links to them,

Mike
