Actually we are working on that with our project cutlass. Here is an exhaust update on that. I will be adding it to the "People" section of the ADTR site.

I think I came across this in some NASCAR info.....sounds interesting..Anyone willing to try a Bonne'...supposedly that "x" pipe is as efficient as TRUE duals...nothing sounds better that dual glass packs!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you're wondering about the paint....I'd say I weld better than I paint...and I don't weld particularly well so between you and me I'm willing to look past that it'* peeling already
Boy, Hector!...Such a rousing example of self-promotion!

I am so glad you farmed out your intakes for fabrication and then bought a powder coating machine!

p.*.

The refund check should be here in a week or so!

the exhaust was my first mod when i started this project. my base line run with the gtech pro competion w as 178 HP at the wheels.after the high flow cat and the flowmaster, i got 191 hp. there was defintily a performance gain with the 2.
flowmaster does alot of R&D and stand behind their product. i was going to buy a dynomax muffler. our napa rep told me not to. he said that they have had alot of complaints with them because after they are on for awhile, they sound like a tin can and cackle when you lift avfter reving it high. like a ricer does.

The sound of my cat and MagnaFlow is great...I'd recommend that.

The performance gain has been impressive too

I couldn't believe the outstanding construction of my Stainless Steel MagnaFlow muffler.
It'* solidly engineered.

I COULD believe there was a tipsy Italian at work on my ANSA tips, though...one is just a little bit, shall we say? UN-parallel.
The rest of the construction is top notch.

Next coupla weeks and those parts will be on.
I'll ask to take pictures while it goes together if the guy will allow it.
I'll get pix of the final installation at any rate.
Wouldn't it be a nice surprise if all the parts sounded good and gave a bit more milage/power...? You betcha! :o

I wonder if I got jipped on my Magnaflow.
I bought it on Ebay new in the box for $25 + $21 */H/INS.
It'* the MAGNAFLOW WIDE OPEN with single 3" inlet and dual 2.5" outlets. Perfect design for the Bonneville. Has 1 outlet at each end.
