Default wiper motor

I was wondering, I have heard complaints that the wipers on our Bonneville'* aren't fast enough and I would totally agree. When it rains and i compare how fast mine is to other cars, they seem really slow. My question then, I work for a woman who has a 02 Regal and her wipers are pretty fast, is there any way to take a motor off say an 02 regal and have it work for my Bonneville?

I haven't noticed complaints about the speed of the wipers. About how the wipers are under the cowl and fill with snow in the winter...how the washers send a half gallon of fluid before you've learned how to "work" the system..but never a speed issue.

Are you sure your'* are working properly? Considering your other wiper post about the snow that wasn't cleaned from under and the possibility of a bent transmission...I'm wondering about the motor as well.

I would agree about the other two things, how to you "work" the washer system. There was no change in the speed from before the snow and ice to now. Its just something I have noticed about older GM cars, and wondering if the wiper motor could be "upgraded". Maybe its just me....
