ppl beasting ppl?



Bonnevilles come in many different forms. There are the luxury boats and then you have the straight up badass racecars.

I prefer the later.

all Bonnevilles 87 to 05 used the 3800, except for the 04 and 05 GXP which used the 4.0 Northstar.

Quote:
The 87-88 Vin 3, 3.8V6 HO made 150 Hp @ 4400 Rpms and 210 Ft Lbs @ 2400 Rpms Rpo LG3

The 88-91 Vin C 3800 MFI made 165 Hp @ 4400 Rpms and 220 Ft lbs @ 2800 Rpms Rpo LN3

The 92-94 Vin L 3800 TPI made 170 Hp @ 4800 Rpms and 225 Ft Lbs @ 3200 Rpms Rpo L27

The 92-93 Vin 1 3800 SC made 205 HP @ 4600 Rpms and 260 Ft Lbs @ 2600 Rpms Rpo L67

The 94-95 Vin 1 3800 SC made 225 HP @ 5000 Rpms and 275 Ft Lbs @ 3200 Rpms Rpo L67

The 95-05 Vin K 3800 II made 205 HP @ 5200 Rpms and 230 Ft Lbs @ 4000 Rpms Rpo L36

The 96-03 Vin 1 3800 II made 240 Hp @ 5200 Rpms and 280 Ft Lbs @ 3600 Rpms Rpo L67
however, there are many Bonnevilles on this forum running 300+ horsepower

BadSSEi, the quickest and fastest Bonneville ran a 10.711 @ 125.71mph

They're all V6'*, with the exception of the GXP, and its still slower than an SSEi in most circumstances.

What trim level do you have? SE, SSE, or SSEi?

Does it say SSE or SSEi on the door? If not, it'* probably a SE. What'* the first 8 VIN digits? We can tell you what it is from that.
