Brake line question

Getting braided lines next week. Wondering if the stock set up of one line that splits to both calipers is the same as two separate lines going from the master to the calipers. Would separate lines be more powerful? Can you even run separate lines?

In my racebike I used a double banjo bolt with bleeder and a double line setup for ease of use/maintenance. There's lots of talk about debatable nuances in setup after that.

E.g.

I like the one line off the master and a T to each caliper somewhere near the bottom triple. it makes everything much more tidy that way.

you won't notice a difference with different line configurations. I'm sure people will debate that one is technically better. but differences aren't quantifiable

Less crush washers and possible leaks too.

Double banjo bolt at the master cylinder end with two lines each running down to its own caliper, as has been said much easier to get all the air out when bleeding

Was looking at spiegler, core or Goodridge. Would like to put some gold colored lines on with black connections.
