Interesting. Alright, well then Guns as soon as the dude tells me it'* off I'll have the wife ship it to you ASAP with a check inside for the return.

So any other ideas guys? I think I hit pretty much everything except suspension. I won't change that though since I have the auto-ride in this car.

Yes your right.. I paid 9 something for priority.. parcel post was only $1 less, which is why I just got priority

Thats just ridiculous you can ship 3 huge items like that for $16...and that tinty thing cost almost 10..makes no sense to me.

If your interested in the same tips I have.. I may be selling my set. I have some thoughts on going with something just a hair different. I am not positive yet, but will let you know.

Otherwise I think your list looks good!

Oh, can you post what type of exhaust you have? I know they're Thrush, and not the welded type, but if you have Part #'* that would be awesome. I think I'm gonna order them online and have the waiting for me when I get home.

From my exhaust thread:

They were Thrush Turbo mufflers Part number: 17713
2 1/4" offset inlet, 2 1/4" center outlet (reversible, but our mufflers on our cars are offset in, center out anyways)

Now our exhaust on the 2000+ Bonneville'* is 2" back at the 'Y' pipe I guess, and the stock mufflers on the car have a 2" inlet and 2 1/4" outlet, which I did not know, I thought it both the inlet and outlet were 2 1/4" so I got the 2 1/4" thinking the whole exhaust was that size.

So if you decided to go with a 2" inlet/outlet muffler instead the part number for that is 17711

Sweet man, thanks a lot. Just ordered two of the 17711 so the exhaust guy doesn't have anything to "add" on to the install price.

Good choice.. wish I would have done the same..would have saved me $20-30 (which was a total rip off to weld a reducer on) You will love the sound, nice and deep, NO rasp..that and the new intake I send you, your gonna have great sounds comming from everywhere!
