Default I got another Bonneville!

I lost my camera'* memory card right when I need it most. Nothing is going to happen to my SSEi, and it'* staying without a second thought.

However, I just got a 99 SLE, dark cherry metallic with a S2 NA engine. It'* a torque monster! It'* practically like my SSEi, but not as blazingly powerful, and the interior is lighter. I hope I find the card and get some pictures up here soon.

wooh! find that card! i LOVE those DCMs! What an outstanding color. We need some more vitals on this thing! miles? interior color? and yeah, it moves like that because of the 3.05 ratio Check the RPOs for it.

Yeah, I heard it has a lower gear ratio, but I didn't get the number. Thanks.

They also movethat way because the torque peak on the L36 is a lot lower in RPM than the S2 L67...An L36 car can actually turn a better 60' than a stock L67...after that, though....

Very interesting. I'm going to post in Your Ride right now. This is a really good find, so I'll put here a link to the other post. You've just got to see it!

Your S1 L67 is a much bigger torque monster than your L36. We're talking almost 280 ft/lbs at 3200 rpms. L36 peak is 230 at 4000.

The L36'* peak torque is not at a lower rpms than the S2 L67.

L36 is 230 ft/lb at 4000
S2 L67 is 280 at 3600

I think you mean the peak torque of the SERIES 1 L67 is lower than the Series 2.

Here'* my Your Ride post:

I agree that my S1 L67 has much more torque, but for what this car does, I'm mightily impressed.

I agree, the L36 has some ballz! And has lots of potential too. You'll have fun with it.

I just wanted to clear up that it doesn't beat the S2 L67 in the torque department.

Absolutely. I've had my fair share of riding in a S2 L67, and it'* pretty freaking fast.
