The dual exhaust does look better, though.
I have a RL exhaust on my NA and really like it.

The RL with the RL exhaust sounds (exhaust-wise) about the same as an NA with an NA exhaust, but the RL exhaust is quite a bit more open, due to the muffling effect of the turbo. Because of that, the RL exhaust on an NA gives it just enough "throat" to be interesting without being obnoxious. You also get a very cool crackling "back-talk" when decelerating under certain conditions.
