do a search on turtle_sse here and you'll see. He was a member who had a heavily modded SSE.

Look, the guy selling the bonne obviously doesnt know the dif between a turbo and supercharger. He probably just guessed (wrong guess) :P

The guy is just like most typical non auto enthusiasts. I've seen so many of these types that think there Jeep Cherokee has a V-6 or a BMW with a V-6. I just can't comprehend not even knowing what type of engine is under the hood of my vehicles.

I actually got into it with my ex-brother-in-law; he had a Firebird (non TA) with the 3800. He was telling me that his car had more hp than mine, I just looked at him and said "sorry, gotcha beat by 5" and walked away...at least I know my facts when picking an argument. (his FB=200hp; 02 Bonneville=205 stock)

hehe...

Yeah, but he said that there is a "Turbo" badge on it, and the dealership told him "turboed"...

He hasn't emailed back yet...

does anyone have pics of Turtles engine? I never did get to see it. If BonneAlien is a pic *****, then Turtle would have to be a pic nun, cuz he never posted anything. (Not that I have much room to talk )

However he also has quite a bit less flab on his car. Not calling bonnies porkers, but FBs and TAs have at least a 300 pound advantage to a bonnie. In fact maybe double that figure the newest model bonnies gained about 100-200 pounds when the new model came out.
