Default OUGH!

Hey everybody,

I'm a second time owner of a Pontiac Bonneville. My first was a sweet, green 96 SE that was recently totaled by a kid doing 45mph before he found the left rear of her mighty fine rear end as it was parked in front of my house. :( It was ugly after. She had 96k on the odom. The funny thing is, I never parked her in the street, but my wife moved it in the street so she could get out of the driveway and I hadn't moved it back into the driveway yet. http://members.***.net/rclaxton/ What can you do? Stuff happens.

On a good note. On the fourth of July I went out a purchased a silver 01 SLE, 43k. She doesn't have quite the same ride or handle quite like my 96 baby did, even with all the extra bells and whistles, but she too is a sweet ride. I was wondering if anyone had any simple, do-it-yourself, tips or references that might help me increase her performance.

Thanks all

Anyways, welcome to the club. You'll find lots of good info and people here. There'* a lot of performance stuff you can do, Intake, headers, rockers, DHP, ect. Preaty much as much as you want to spend, the parts are avavilable

Nice color on your new ride BTW
