I would use a dual in/dual out cat that would double as an "H" or pressure equalizer. Run the dual pipes side by side to just over the rear axle where they would branch to two separate small mufflers, then out the back. I think that the pipe after the cat would have to be between 1.75 and 2.25 inches and no larger, depending on the application.

Anyone interested?
Ever thought of "Dump Tubes" for Drag Racing???? I wonder if our engines could handle that? If they could then that would be another option to consider in that equation of yours Complinitor! Now, if we could somehow make this all "Smog" legal for some of our Cali friends, that would be even better. Ty! Hector! Any input on this?

That'* what we have now. We want to up the HP and the torque by doing this, not just replace an inadequate part. Watch and learn, yunggin'!

Mr. Deathrat,
I've seen those dumps on JC Whitney and I believe that Jeg'* carries them, as well. If we use a couple of reducers, it should work. I don't know if I cam get away with that here in VA. I don't have an emission inspection, but I do have a annual state inspection. I'll call the guys that do mine in the AM and ask them. All we need is a little backpressure to keep the valves from walking!

I haven't been called "Mister" in a very long time! Just call me Al or Rat, you make me feel even older than I am when you call me "Mister".
The reason for the dump tubes, was for a quick & easy way to by-pass the rest of the restrictive exhaust system when drag racing at the track. This way you can still run a true dual exhaust system for the street & have a straight thru system for drag racing.

I am currently working on a Borla system for the 2000-2003. If there is anyone in cali with a 2000-2003 let me know I will get you the kit at my cost to set it up. The other option is to find the appropriate affiliate in your area and set up the build that way. I have the company ready all I need is a 2000-2003 Bonneville who is ready to go.

As for the 92-99 systems I may be having my exhaust guy make a kit...but HP loss is an issue. I will soon offer fully working and custom pipes. I even have a few very cool custom systems coming.

Where are you?

I have connections all over the US and Canada and can make it happen in most areas.
