That is what was done, they increased the pipe to intall the muffler. I did not know there was a 80'* with a three inch. I took the car to a garage and told them what I wanted...when It was going in I noticed the inlet. I have to say...it is much smaller than the stock muffler that came out. I am not thinking I should have put a different type of exhaust tips. I tried to keep them simalar to the old ones just */*.

how is it performance wise? a lot of people say not to increase tubing size because you will lose low end torque? any problems with that noticed??

The origional size on the bonnevilles is 2 and a 1/4 i think. And if you goto 2.5 without mandril bends you are actually going to loose flow. When my muffler place saw that the origional was all mandril bent they were preaty impressed. They said they could go 2.5 but they can't mandril bend the tubbing and i would acutally loose flow just cause of the amount of bends in the system. I have no catalytic converter and 4 feet of resonator with a Flowmaster 80series muffler

it does lose torque but only with a true dual application (2 mufflers) is it very noticable, it'* good to stay single muffler and that'* what I did
