Default Let me get a couple things straight.

I need a little info on the new style bonnies.
the se, sse, and ssei has the same motors and the 1992-1999 bonnies.
the gxp is available with what motors?
SSXP?
what other trim packages are there?

are there differant superchargers?
I know that before they made the Grand Prix GTp there was the special Edition which came with a turbocharged 3.4 i believe. did they do that with Bonnies too?
how bout the 1988 and so on bonnies? availible with turbos and superchargers?

sorry bout all the questions. just need some freshening up

1.se, sse, ssei are all 3800 series But i believe that there is a generation change in 1996
2.The GXP only comes with the 4.6 V8
3.Other models include the SLE which I believe was introduced in 1993
4.Yes ,there are different superchargers : Eaton M62 (1992-1993) Eaton M62 Gen 3 (1994-1996) Then I Believe the Eaton M90 Gen 3. There is a Eaton M90 Gen 5 but it wasn't offered on Bonnevilles(top of the line model went to GXP in 2004)
5.I think the only motors available in a Bonneville are the 3800 N/A and the 3800 Supercharged
6.As far as the 1988-1992 Bonnies-I think that they were all just N/A

Hope that answers your questions

Older body style Grand Prix.....pre 1996 with the B4U package, regular coupe and sedan could come with the twin cam 3.4 and in 1990 they made the McLaren witch had a turbo 3.4 engine..that was only a 2dr. In 1997 the body style changed to the widetrack and that was the start of the 3800 series 2. It was an option to get a GTP with a Supercharged 3800. It is not until 2005 GP had the GXP option.
I have had 6 GP..2 SE'*, 2 GT'*, 1 GTP and GXP that my wife had. These were amazing cars....but no comparison to the luxury and handling of the Bonneville. Hope this help you.

Wow. Lots of mis-information here. A search could net you some answers, but let me answer some for you:

Bonnevilles:
88-91 had the 3.8L LN3 motor. This was the pre-series motor. Same for LE, SE, SSE
92-93 - SE and most SSE'* have the L27 3.8L motor. This was a series 1. Few SSE and all SSEi'* had the Series 1 L67 3.8L Supercharged. These used the M62 supercharger. in these years it was a Gen 2 M62.
94 - SE and SSE used the L27 Series one NA 3.8L. SSEi used the Series 1 L67 3.8L supercharged. This used the Gen3 M62
95 - most SE and all SSE used the L36 Series Two NA 3.8L. some SE and all SSEi used the Series 1 L67 3.8L supercharged. This used the Gen3 M62

96-97- Most SE and All SSE used the Series Two L36 NA 3.8L. Few SE and all SSEi has the Series 2 L67 3.8L Supercharged. This used the M90 Gen 3 Supercharger.
98-99 - All SE, SLE, SSE used the Series Two L36 NA 3.8L. All SSEi has the Series 2 L67 3.8L Supercharged. This used the M90 Gen 3 Supercharger.

00-05 - All SE and SLE used the Series Two L36 NA 3.8L. All SSEi has the Series 2 L67 3.8L Supercharged. This used the M90 Gen 3 Supercharger. 04-05 had the GXP, which used the 4.6L V8 Northstar motor.


Now, for Grand prix, 88-89 use the Quad 4 or the 2.8L motor.
90-96 had the 3.1L or the DOHC Twin Cam 3.4L (90 and 91 didn't get that)
89 and 90 had the McClaren Turbo Grand Prix, which was a 3.1L Turbo Motor.

In 97-some 99, the options were 3.8LNA for the SE and GT, and the Series 2 L67 3.8L Supercharged in the GTP. This used the M90 Gen 3 Supercharger.
From 99-03, the SE had the 3100, the GT the 3.8L NA L36, and the Series 2 L67 3.8L Supercharged in the GTP. This used the M90 Gen 3 Supercharger.

No SSXP. Ever.

There is also an M90 Gen5 Supercharger available on the Series 3 L67, found in 04+ Grand Prix. A M112 was found on some larger RWD formats, mainly the ford lightning. There is also a new M62 on the newer Cobalt SS, which is NOT COMPATIBLE with the Bonneville. There is also an M45 Supercharger on the Mini Cooper *. These are all Eaton superchargers. There may be other types and brands as well, but these are the stock ones available.

Hope this helps.

Haha SSXP is what sawgunner calls his because it is an SSEi with GXP parts on it, just like I call mine the SEi because it is an SE with a lot of SSEi parts on it

hmmm...I do have the GXP seats and want to buy some more interior so maybe once I get that done it can be the SEGi or SEXi like Dan'*

It was a lucky find, I went into Morad'* to get an injector since I had one that wasn't flowing well and instead of spending $10 on the injector I ended up spending $280 for the seats and an injector
