Default New dual exhaust - need help with choices


I hope you can help me wade through all the info and keep me on the right path. I have a 5.7 hemi with a single exhaust, and moving to a dual set up.

Right now, I am debating two choices -
1. New Magnaflow Ypipe and 12288 muffler - have exhaust shop do all the tubing for me.
2. New Magnaflow Ypipe and 16869 cat back kit - have exhaust shop do the install.

My questions is how important is it really to have the mandrel bent pipes versus a traditional set up done by the shop? I can understand and appreciate that the mandrel bent pipes will give better performance, but dont understand what that really means.

From my preliminary info, the kit plus the install is twice the cost of the muffler plus shop doing the pipe, and any money saved is more money for more mods.

I appreciate you guys helping on this one.
