Just wanted to say thanks to all on this forum. I've had my bonneville for about 5 years and its been a good car all and all, new tranny a few years ago, but other than that it has been good. I recently was attacked by the infamous intake manifold problem. Thanks to this forum I was able to get all the info I needed to fix it and save alot of money in doing so. I ended up replacing the upper plenum, with the new stovepipe design and did the intake manifold gaskets at the same time, not to mention alot of minor things while i was in there.
so.....this is a thanks to you....especially jr3800'* final full write up and synopsis of the entire affair.
i've been into dsm'*(talons, eclipses) for years and have used their online resources and they have enabled me to do literally everything to that car, from building my own built motor to well, anything else you can imagine and i'm really glad to have this resource to do the same to an extent on the bonneville.
