Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust! Good?

I am looking into purchasing a dual exhaust kit for my truck. I had a Flowmaster Delta for my 2001 which sounded great, but now own a 2007 Doublecab. I am very interested in the Flowmaster American Thunder Series exhaust kit for my truck. It is bolt on. Is that ok or does it have its cons as well. If anyone has a video of what it sounds like please post. I am curious to hear what it sounds like. By the downloadable instructions, it seems pretty simple to install as well. Big savings.

I always think fake duals look silly in the winter with all the exhaust coming out one side...

Doesn't a pseudo-dual also dick up backpressure and cost some torque on the 4.0?

It's a nice mild tone and sounds good from the outside.
I'm assuming this is what you got, http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/sh...=&vehicle=2006 TOYOTA TACOMA V6&orig=17432

Do you have any sound clips?

BTW you can find it at Jegs for 100 bucks cheaper, I'm ordering mine and installing it myself, good luck!
