You are FAR more likely to have the 3.06 than the 2.84.

I think the 3.06 final drive came packaged with the H4U (SLE). If you have leather interior, automatic climate control, 5 spoke painted aluminum 16" wheels etc you probaly have H4U.

Was GX3 ever on a Bonneville? I remember I had the 3.33 on my Cutlass Supreme. Though it was also the 4T60E I didn't think GX3 was a Bonneville code.
