Well a guy ran a 96 SSEi stock in the mid 14'* that was set up right. So if you set up a 94/95 right you could probably hit high 14'* low 15'*.

What do you mean by "Set up right" ? My 97 SSEi is stock, but surely if you change anything, then its a 'Mod' right ????

Yeah, but that 96 SSEi was a Series II, whereas the 94/95'* are Series I. The Series II has (I think) 25 or 35 more hp. That is a big difference in power.

"Set Up right" Just had the springs set up right. The front compressed and the rear jacked so they wouldn't compress.

It'* like that around here too. I can't wait till I get an "Anti-Rice" t-shirt and walk right into the rice section at the shops here. Stupid ricers. They think they're faster than a Bonneville because ALL they know about the Bonne is that it is a big car. I love it when my plates provoke them to race me and I stomp the sh** out of them all the time. They must think my plates mean nothing!

I talked to someone from K&N a long time ago and asked them if they had any performance intake kits for Bonnevilles, since they make them for others, and even Saturns! They said "we don't, pobably because the lack of space for one and the minimal amount of performance increase from one in a Bonneville"

Pissed me off. I think the person that I talked to was just stupid. Do they really think that there wouldn't be a good amount of performance increase in the Bonne if they made a kit? No, it'* because they don't know the potential probably, and they don't know the demand by Bonne owners that it obviously out there for intakes. I think they should make a kit. I already got my ADTR intake, (FINALLY!!) so I'm not complaining, but they shouldn't count the Boneville out, IMO.

But it'* cool that we are not known to be performance cars by a lot of (ignorant) ppl. That way our sleepers unuspectingly kick a$$ out there.
