Default 2005 Pontiac Bonneville SLE Performance (Stock)

Okay guys I like my SLE and all... But to give me bragging rights whats the top speed with the 3.05:1 and the 3800 Series II? Whats 0-60mph? And whats its 1/4 mile time? If any of you know or have a rough idea of what my Bonneville SLE can do... Or should be able to do tell me (with a good driver). And just for the fun of it what would the best way to launch my Bonneville for the best accleration times and the best place to launch it to do a burnout... Not that I would ever consider such...

I wouldnt be trying to do any burnouts with the non-HD transmission, there is too much that can go wrong too easily if you arent carefull

uh.. performance is probably a little over 9 seconds. I tested my aurora'* 0-60 and it was 9.1 seconds on a 90* day and almost a full tank of gas. That'* with 15 more horsepower than the Bonneville too and the same torque and 3.27 gears.

top speede will be limited to 108, its weird tho my car is limited to 106...and the 2000+are heavier than the 92-99, so I would say that you will run low to mid 16'*, as the run to 60 i agree with others

So what exactly do they max out at? Is an 8 second run to sixty possible in the right conditions? It a 16 flat quater mile at 88 or so possible? Will it run 125mph or 130mph? It feels like it but I used to a 3400 Impala!

i would say that with a CAI and a good day you could get 16'*, and you will be limited at 108, unless you get an aftermarket PCM
