Default Finally did it!

After weeks of lurking around (and exceeding my number of guest views lol) I have finally signed up here on gmforum.com. Alot of great info here. I love Pontiac and I have been driving a 95 bonneville se around for about two years. ~158,000 miles and it still runs like a top. My father bought the car in 95 after a felon fleeing from police T-boned his 85 bonne. He actually got out and pinned down the felon while police rushed in to arrest the him lol. I have to admit I laughed seeing my dad with his knee pushed on the back of some dudes neck on the evening news.

Anyway im currently dealing with a guy to buy a 95 ssei with ~180,000 miles for 800 dollars. Too my knowledge this car has a series I L67 in it, which has no aftermarket. I would like to know if it'* possible (and practical) to put a series II L67 in it and really get this car rolling!!

Thx and look forward to being a part of the forum.

yes that is probable but i have the same year and model and I can tell you it will be a pain due to the computer being obd 1.5 which means finding someone who can flash it for the correct tune. As far as i can tell no one here is able to, at least I think people kept telling me they didn't have the software for it. I really want to supercharge mine because i love it but i don't know how likely it will happen unless ive overlooked someone who does have proper software... plus premium is expensive with gas prices now....

Oh and Welcome here

Welcome to GM Forum!

From what I've heard, there are a few mods for S1 engines, but most are for the S2. With premium gas prices topping $4 a gallon now (at least at the expensive stations near me), some people are going to start unloading '96+ SSEi'*, so keep your eyes on craigslist.

Welcome! It'* great you like Bonnevilles so much. You're in good company!

The easiest thing to do would be to get a wrecked 96 SSEi and transfer over the engine and wiring harness. Then you'd be pretty much all set. Sounds easy...

Welcome to the forum!

I don't mind the extra .20 -.30 cents per gallon it costs to drive my SSEi compared to my SLE. The mileage really doesn't change much either. Even with 100+ hp more on the SSEi, they both pull about 24 MPG highway with my driving.

Thanks Everybody. So it seems if I can get a series II L67 with the wiring harness later on down the road, that it should be a fairly easy swap.

And I won't mind paying extra for premium because my dream driver lol.
