94-95 has the OBD1/2 and no EPROM replacement and the 96+ dosnet have PCM support either

DO NOT BUY A */C. Buy a NA Bonneville, oh what'* the point? */C Bonnevilles are better than NA, just go ahead and buy a */C one.

Boost is addicting so I understand why even through I've never ridden or driven a supercharged car. I recommend the 96-99, they're more elegant than the 92-95.

Tell me Jim, why the nice fella should ignore my statement and I have a name, it'* Cody and I just failed to tell everyone my name, I just use Fuel because that'* what everyone else uses. Oh I see now, you own a 94 (snicker, snicker)

Dude, I wasn't taking you seriously, I did that in a sarcasm form, it'* kinda hard to put it in a sarcasm form really but I don't really care that you may call me a raving lunatic or whatever.

I just might have forgotten to insert a emoticon to show that I wasn't taking you seriously.

so, go with 97-99 if mods are in the plan? I know the 96 and up are rated higher on HP.
