Default 1994 Bonneville Question(*)

I'm new to the board but have loved my bonny as long as i've had it. I'm drivin a 1994 Bonny with 105,000 miles on it. It is on its 3rd engine, which would make some talk smack about the quality, but i know better. Since the engine is only about 50k miles old (and the trans about 35k) the car runs great!. I was however wondering how to do a few things on some of the older parts of the car.

First I want to do anything relatively inexpensive to get my gas milage up (its not that bad... average between 20-23 city and 23-25 highway). I was going to do the fuel filter and the O2 sensor. I was wondering if anyone could give me an est. price on both of these and relative ease of install. I have done both of these things before (on my 1991 ford aerostar) and it wasnt TOO bad...

Also i am going to have to do something with the exhaust. I'd like to get something a little more high flow, but not that more expensive. The current system is obviously rusting out, and beginning to sag a bit. You're starting to be able to hear my car coming (but not in the good way). Also if you could give me a couple ideas on pricing from stock to high-flow. thanx

If anyone has any more suggestions let me know . But i must re-iterate the key word is CHEAP. Im currently feeling the effects of being a poor college student.


Thanks for your help

o2 sensor wont cost you nothin but 20 bucks, I don't know how much a fuel filter will cost but I'm sure it will not be a lot, oh and try some of that GREASE LIGHTNING, it should help your car out also,
