Default Lots of questions...

First of all Im new here. I just bought a 93 Bonneville 3800(base model i think) with 150,000 miles for $250. It needs a trans, but other than that its a nice car...... Now for the questions.

What cars and years can I find a trans in that will work in my car.

Will 22s fit with minor mods. (hopefully cause I already ordered them)

What kind of gas mileage do these cars get.



I know a little about cars but this is my first big fwd car so anything you guys could do to help would be great....

The trans will depend on the gear ratio in your car. On the spare tire cover in your truck is the RPO list. Hop on car-part.com and you should be prompted for the gear ratio. Usually they list the code as well.

As for 22'*, I think there are a couple doing it already.

Gas mileage is a question after you ask about 22'*. LMAO.. your a funny dude!.. Pretty good for a first post.

22'* will fit, but the quality of your ride is going to SUCK. 18 is the biggest id go, but as you said u orderded them already.
