Gatorbacks are made for the N/A cars as well.

http://www.goodyearbeltsandhose.com/cars/gatopoly.html

Search under 1994 Bonneville SE got this part number for a gatorback poly-v belt: 4061025

Edit: the last four digits represent a belt length of 102.5", that should work right?

well I'll be running the belt without the AC so I'll have to measure the length but the site seems pretty helpful

overall the gatorback seems to be a good product. my belt is in good shape now but when i eventually replace it, i'll probably go with that.

You'll want a 73 inch belt.
