With 2 more cylinders it sounds completely different at all RPMS over a V6.

Every RPM has two more burbles, and affect the sound consequently.

dynomax is a good muffler....mine choice of sound is 3in.from headers straight back into a flowmaster 40series ......nice deep rumble good flow ....and great all around sound thru-out the power band from idle 1100rpm to redline 6500rpm......but i guess it up to each of us to pick what we like the best :P

The Riviera, Aurora, and Bonneville exhaust all split off at the rear wheels into dual mufflers. only a little less than half is actually 'dual.'

That'* true for the Bonnevilles from 2000 and up, not the earlier (87-99)

NOTE TO OUR READERS:

Turtle is running 600+ hp at the wheels with a bigass Turbo AND NOS. He can go to a full 3" exhaust without losing backpressure. Most of us are better served with 2.5" piping
