That is NOT true. If he sees something he'* interested in, he needs to post it for compatibility. INTENSE doesn't have all the cross-markets listed.

What he is saying is you must ask them if it will work for you're car. The PCM is the most varied underhood component from car to car. Meaning almost anything it interchangable between any 3800 powered car except the PCM. My LSS is identical mechanically to a SSEi but the PCM for some odd reason is totally different. If intense does not have a PCM for you're car you will need to get in contact with DHP so they can custom burn you one.

Okay, looks like I'm mistaken on several parts. Bill is right that INTENSE does not list all cross(whatever word he used). I was able to find plenty of parts for the LeSabre, it said "For 1996-2005 LeSabre" in their application list and I'm sure the application that used this words "For 1996-2005 cars equipped with the L36" also includes the LeSabre, some modifications might be needed. Unless Roger is looking for something different or I missed a key information.

There are a bunch of parts listed that work for the Series 1 as well, but they're not all listed.

If there'* any doubt, or even a wish, just ask.

Pretty much. RegalGS.org will barely talk to PA Ultra guys, and LeSabres seem to be beneath their dignity. And ClubGP? Forget it....

You have the 4T65E, but not the HD. INTENSE offers an upgrade kit that has basically everything in it that makes the HD stronger. As far as suspensions go, you literally can use anything available for the Bonneville or Olds 88 of that generation.
Actually a little junkyarding will give you a pretty good upgrade in the form of FE2 or F41 swaybars and springs.
Bonneville front seats will fit, it'* just a matter of which ones you get. Buckets, like the AL7 nine-way adjustables, will leave a big gap between your seats. A front bench will fit as well, and will give you a little better support than the LeSabre seat, but will not offer all the adjusters of the AL7s.
