What is the difference?

what is the difference between a true dual exhaust system and a divorced dual setup? I have a friend who needs some clarification on this.

Same thing, different way of saving it. Divorced just means separated. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

Regular duals have either an h or an x connecting the pipes in a midpipe. It's used to balance the flow of exhaust gasses in cars with an uneven firing order, such as a v8

Since some mustang v6s have an even firing order (for example the 4.0) they don't need a midpipe like the v8s do, so they just have the pipes going from the headers, through the cats, to the mufflers and out the tips. Neither pipes touch each other.

That's divorced duals. Separate pipe connected to each manifold/header. X or h connects them with an h shaped midpipe or x. X is raspy, h is deep, divorced is loud

true dual exhaust is one pipe leaving each bank separately, and running separately to the exit point for the car. a true dual exhaust can have an H pipe for balance between the systems, but a X pipe is not a true dual exhaust in the classic sense of the word, as it brings everything to one point in the system before branching back out. its like bringing the separate pipes of each bank into a single muffler, and then splitting the pipes after the muffler.
