STUPID QUESTION ALERT: Is the tire pump on the SSEi normally very slow? I hear mine power on and such and it blows air but its pretty weak. Is that the nature of the pump?

Well done, Scott. True Bonneville owner spirit in action.

Actually, on the way home from WCBF, I stopped in Payson, Utah for gas and air. An elderly woman was trying to air up her tires and was having trouble getting the caps off the tires....naturally, I jumped right in and took care of her....I hit all four tires and she was on her way.

The accessory air pumps on the Bonnevilles are definitely slow, but powerful.

All 2000+ Bonnevilles have the Automatic Level Control (air compressor), but only the SSEi'* have the additional inflator set up on the trunk threshold.

Well, it would be an extensive modification to a vehicle with out Automatic Level Control. It would require a significant amount of new hardware just to mention a few things: Compressor, Height Sensor (mounted to left rear control arm), Air Shocks, all interconnecting tubing, all interconnecting wiring, schrader fitting in trunk, momentary contact pushbutton in trunk. The Rear Integration Module (RIM) controls the Auto Level Control & Air Inflator Accessory on the 00+. Not really sure how you would integrate the RIM.
