So far, I haven't seen anyone here that has posted as having tried a Borla on their Bonneville. Most are using a Flowmaster 80 series or similar or a Magnaflow.

I DO love Borla mufflers, especially since they are available in Stainless. The tone from a Borla can be very sweet sounding.

EDIT: forget this part for 2000+ Bonnevilles. See below...[If you want to go with Borla, look for one that is specified for the F-body cars, ya know, Camaro and Firebird. That is what fits the Bonnevilles too.}

negative lash, a f-body style IS NOT optimal for a 2000+ vehicle. you should be looking for a 2.25in center in/center out or a offset in/center out

either inlet will work for the application because of the shape of the pipes.

Well Toasty, I'm apparently learning the hard way, lol.

Thanks for correcting that. I don't want to be giving out wrong info.

it is VERY quiet on the highway, it can be a bit loud when the car is cold, but after 5 or 10 minutes it quiets right down to how is sounds in teh video.
I bought the highflow on ebay, and i dont remember what brand it was, however, most people here use a 2.5inch magnaflow cat
