Default Headers or not

I am planning on duals soon, I have talked with a muffler shop and received a price for an one-in 2-out muffler with the required pipes and tips. Believe he quoted on a 3" pipe, it will run about $370 installed, not sure of the muffler type yet. He says the sound is good outside but not loud inside - uses this set up for older people who do not want the loud sound of a teenager.

What would headers do for this type of set up? Normally, when I think of headers, I think of race cars or for loud in-your-face exhaust. Not what I want!

Comments? Yes, I know I need some pictures of my truck - when I slow down, I will do that!

Headers will evacuate / scavenge the exhaust gasses a bit faster than the stock exhaust manifold. It will get a bit noisier as well.

true...but it all depends on what muffler they are going to use as to how loud it'll be even with the headers
