It'* been shown that the Stock exhaust doesn't get restrictive til your pushing low 13'*, but i don't see how higher flowing mufflers will hurt performance at all. The 00+ Bonne Exhaust is very good from the factory compared to others.

Is it that Paul is in Canada so he can take out his cat with no consequences? Regardless of that, the catless and the catted exhaust systems are probably not comparable. Are these mufflers on yet?

Ya haro is right...let me clarify.

I bought these from haro. I will be using the stock piping. These will end up just replacing the stock mufflers. I want to know how they sound.

I just want to know of peoples' experiences with their sound quality. Because if its too raspy I'll just sell them to someone else (not back to you haro, lol).

The reason I never put them on was because I was unsure what they would sound like. I know what Paul'* sounded like and I didn't want that. I don't know of anyone else running Magnafllows on a 00+. However, the more I listen to my car, think the raspiness is more so from the headers, as my exhaust sounds like **** with the headers and stock mufflers. Just bite the bullet, put them on, and see what they sound like
