I dont want to buy a new car just yet. I have only had this one for 4 weeks now. I am just jelous of the power his regal has with the Series II. I want that Power Somehow out of my Series I. If I couldn't accomplish this I was really considering swapping a series II into my 1994.

I am Currently working on getting an exhaust for it. I have been looking for an intake kit but no one sells one made for this car. Is there one for another car that they do sell that will fit my Bonneville???? I just bought the K&N Filter for it but I notice no difference so I want to try a full intake kit. I didn't know if doing these things that I had already planned and I am sure you read about in my other posts was enough to put it up around 200 HP or more??


P.*. I want to thank you guys for getting my Head out of My A$$ and helping me to realized theres other options than a swap. I get to driving his regal and I get frustrated when I get back in my bonny and its not as frisky, so I start going crazy trying to find ways to beat that damn REGAL!

Well you could always just blow up his Regal? Seriously though.....The Regal is a lighter car just like the GP. The exact same power plant will always work better in the lighter car, so even if his engine was in your Bonneville (a clone engine) his Regal would still beat you. One easy way to beat him though is by getting better traction/handling & more power to the actual wheels.
