You'll actually want a muffler with a 2" intake/outlet for the Bonnevilles with the dual exhaust. I'm not sure what it is if you have single exhaust. I do have Borla PRO XS mufflers on my Aurora, but like mentioned, it'll sound different than what a Bonneville will. On my supercharged Riviera I also had Borla but the Turbo series instad of the PRO XS and it was quite a bit deeper sounding, but it was somewhat raspy and popped a lot.
If I had to do over again, I would probably have gone with the Turbo mufflers again. The sound is a bit deeper and not as loud as the PRO XS'* are. It could just be the engine themselves too. the 3.5 is smaller than the 3.8 obviously. hah. I like the refined sound tho.

here'* a clip of my exhaust the day I got the mufflers installed (after they break in they get deeper sounding.)

I'm not sure. The 95-99 Riviera, 95-03 Aurora (all engines) have 2.5" exhaust from the catalytic converter to the T-split, then 1 7/8" after the split to the mufflers... The Bonneville should be the same.

me thinks its defferent, someone needs to measure... i can do it tomorrow at work for an SE single exhaust reference, but i remember seeing a riv exhaust and it looked MUCH smaller than my SE

I waited to ditch the stock restrictive 2" dia twin exhaust pipes....it'* only 2 1/4" after the resonator, until after extensive mods. Fortuneately our newer SII engines have more aftermarket goodies to boost our flow. Wink
This was pulled from this thread:

The quote above was from Silverbullet who measured the exhaust himself. The SE exhaust will be thicker because it'* a single exhaust, not dual. It should still be 2.25" though.
