Hey folks, had to find a new forum, as we just bought a 98 Bonneville SE last week! Previous owner bought it as a drivetrain donor for his 343K Olds LSS. He replaced the upper intake, starter, and ps pump. He drove it for a week, and realized it was way too nice to part out! Only 111K on it, and has a passable cheap repaint on it. Owned more cars than I can remember, but the first two were colonnade coupes, a 74 Malibu, then a 75 LeMans. I have a 70 Suburban that'* been sitting awhile, and we just retired our last family truckster, a 94 Ciera w/201K! Spent a good bit of time on the A body forum, keeping the Olds and a previous 96 Century running. -Adam

Welcome to the forums Adam!
If you have any pics of it feel free to share them, and if you have any questions with anything about the car don't hesitate to ask.

Ask the previous owner if he replace the lower intake gaskets when the upper intake was replaced.

Nice car.

Good call, if the plastic lined LIM gasket was not changed over to the aluminum framed gasket, then I highly suggest having that done, or risk future catastrophic engine failure.
