Default Dual Exhaust?

Does anyone make true dual-exhaust kits for Bonnies?
I have '95SSEi and would love to convert to 2pipe

You won't gain much, if at all. Our exhaust is mandrel bent stainless, and is properly tuned.

Unless you want to go headers, and a very expensive install for very little gain. (headers would have to be custom).

Otherwise, simply replace the cat and muffler.

Your 95 has several header options available already, but the 95 SSEi doesn't.

My advice to you would be to drop each run down to 2 or 2.25" if you're going to do that. $400 is an almost unbelievable price for that. The mufflers and cats will cost almost that much alone.

too big of a pipe means no torque, which is the strong point of our engines.

nice connection! Are you going true dual from the headers on back? If so you know to put an X pipe in, otherwise you will sound like two 3cyl engines running.
