There are no kits that you can buy and just bolt up that I know of for any year Bonnie, but I could be wrong. You pretty much have to do it custom if you want something different.

ZCRX87,

Please put your year and trim level in your signature. Alot depends on what you actually drive, and they've been making Bonnevilles since 1957.

Most of us only have to replace the Cat and Muffler. From 87-2005, our exhaust diameter is sufficient for good performance, is made of mandrel-bent stainless, and simply needs the Cat and Muffler (OEM restrictive) changed out to hi-flow designs. Most of the fastest cars here have basically stock exhaust, with upgraded individual components.

If you have a Series 2, headers are an option.

Your cat is now illegal, and anyone who turns you in for owning it (regardless of who did the gut job) will get a reward from the EPA. I'd get a performance unit on there ASAP.

Component brands vary by taste (for sound). I prefer Magnaflow, particularly on the Supercharged 93, but I'd suggest adding a resonator regardless of the brand you choose. 93 was the last year without one from the factory, and a performance exhaust will sound raspy without one.

I'm Magnaflow Cat, Magnaflow Resonator, and Magnaflow muffler.

Sorry, but in Nebraska, it IS illegal, emissions testing or not. I don't have emissions in my State either, but if someone EVER puts your car on a lift and realizes your cat is missing or gutted, you could be HOSED.

This is a FEDERAL law. No State is exempt. The fines are NOT funny.
