I have two shops I feel comfortable with in Chicago. I now have two people (another in LA) ready to go so ití* done. I will keep everyone posted as I get more info. It will be around two days before I have any solid answers.

I did this operation all my self. I just put a high flow converter on and then put a y pipe out the back then uses elbows and pipes to position the exhaust to where I wanted wasnt that hard although I was doing it on the ground I used hangers and clamps that you can get at any part shop and then put just some 40 series flows on there and chrome out the back. Took longer then I wanted because I was on the ground but it was well worth it. I suggest you talk to a friend with a lift. And also just make sure you get the right lenghts before you go hacking pipe.
This mod didnt kill my performance it really gave me some Mmmmpfh but I did lose like 2 mpg its worth it for the sound . I dont even drive with my radio on it sounds so awesome. Make sure you get a muffler that gets you a nice deep growl out of your V6.
Good luck and god speed

I am starting in cali with my Borla connection but once built I will pass it on to you at cost. You are the only people involved. I am still looking for 92-99 Bonneville owners interested in Borla Kits.


As for a True Dual pipe ( from the exhaust manifold all the way back) I would say that it can be done and if you are going to stay stock the pipes would have to be the right size so you donít rob the engine of all its power. That said a high output engine could have some fun with a system like this.

what makes a Borla Kit different from the rest? I dont think my SE will be needing a dual from the manifolds, I dont have the $$$ to get it that powerful.
