well dang man thats pretty expensive.at least for me any way. why is everything so expensive!!!! my plan was too just buy a muffler of the same dimensions as the stock one and have the local muffler man take car of bidness. of course i couldnt find on the same as stock from magnaflow. i found one thats 5in thick 11in wide and 22in long problem is the stock one is 28 in long.but since i cant afford it any way it doesnt really matter.

The muffler itself is not that expensive, I did a custom install...all new components. Bear in mind that prices are a bit higher in CAN, US prices are lower

For HP gain you might get another 3-5, the complete job will push you up to 10 more or so. But take care of the priorities first and keep an eye on your coolant levels.

Only laughin gas (NoS) will do that, and it costs what about 700 clams and you get 45 hp boost, but it should be the last thing you do after heavy modding

Bonnevilles are powerful anyway, you'll be fine

Wow Jim, that'* a lot. But it is new. Mine cost me $121 for the muffler, $65 to install it. Probably another $100 for the CAT installation included. I would like some new piping, but am out of $$.
