Here is the sending unit you want to go with the Dorman fuel pump and strainer, you could get the AC Delco OE ones, but if you get the AC Delco OE pump and sending unit you are going to spend quite a bit more.

I can tell by looking at that, it'* the N/A (SE, SSE) sender. As I said, I never tried it, so this might be pure superstition... I do know that the wiring from my fuel control module (in the trunk) in the '98 SSEi is a heavier gauge, than the wire going to the pump on the '96 SSE.

IMHO, There'* usually some risk to replacing */C parts, with N/A model parts.

Do you have a picture of what the fuel sender looks like for the SC version, or a part number?
I checked RockAuto, and found that listed as fitment for your SSEi, then I checked Amazon and the part RockAuto had was listed as "This product fits your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
Engine: 3.8L V6 Gas OHV Distributorless Supercharged SFI Electronic FI MFI
Trim: SSEi
Fitment Notes: SE"

I see that is says fitment notes SE, but I figured since it said SuperCharged, it was actually for the SuperCharged version of the 3800 II, both places had it listed for the */C version of the 3800 II

I have a supercharged sending unit from a 96 Park Ave Ultra in my 97 SE. Fuel gauge is off, everything else is fine.

Once I get a price on the all-in-one sender/pump, I'll post it up, along with the product numbers. Admittedly there is no real hurry on my part, as I won't be back in the states until December. However, I do want to get things ordered and shipped so they'll be waiting for my brother to install (at his convenience of course ) Perhaps at that time we'll be able to lay to rest the question over the correct fitment for this thing (or maybe not...)
