I have a confession to make... - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

My defense of the Aurora stands, as it should and always will, but as comparable GM cars go, the Bonneville has always been one.

Dan, I forgive you, but I totally understand!

Somehow I knew you'd pipe in...

Yes I like the LSS...

Could we imagine what would happen if the 3.5( 90* )Twin Cam had a blower in the middle? Maybe an M62 or M90.... Woah...

I just got the Aurora back today after my brother drove it all week and I was driving his bonneville and my mom'* bonneville. The Aurora is so classy coming down the road and the interior is beautiful.. But, getting back behind the wheel I wasn't having fun driving it so much. It'* a dog on the highway. With the A/C on even at 1/2 throttle I can barely even get it to speed up at all. I have to keep pressing the gas until it downshifts then it'll pick up. Supercharged cars really spoil you I think because once you have owned one (Riviera for me) you can't stand driving vehicles that are lacking that low end torque. I'm torn. I like the looks of the aurora better, but I like the supercharged 3800. hmm.. Maybe a 3800 swap should be done.

here'* some expensive stuff you can do for the shortstar though. Only mods I can find. :(

As far as I have been told, OHC engines are known for their top end, while pushrod motors usually have a nice fat bottom. Just what I've heard.
