Well, sounds to me like we have a supplier of bonneville parts here. I think we're going to be real good friends.

Thanks Todd yes it has been a great job for almost five years know but on the flip side I have seen alot of cars that are still in very nice shape get crushed. One time I had to watch a 2005 harley softtail with just a scratch on it get crushed that sucked then we recycle for gm to so all the storm damaged cars from new orleans and delivery damaged cars and trucks get crushed also. totally different prospective on cars now the yard goes through roughly 1500 cars&trucks monthly WOW. since I've worked there I haven't spent over $1000.00 on any rig I know where they'll end up if not taken care of.

Thank Dan for all the good info like the threads. I would like now to install headers on my 93SSEI Yes I come across lots of parts but I'll have to keep my eyes out for aftermarket mods.Still having trouble with getting pics on ads I don't get the http thing. If I could browse it would make more since to me.

Welcome welcome... omg i didnt even know there WAS a section just for the intro of new members lol

about the headers... if you find any holla at me... i have a 94 and i havent found any until you get to 96+ models and they are different so they wont mount or work due to the angles on the pipes and clearance on the tranny... but IF you find some i wanna kno so HOLLA!

I seem to remember there are none, unless you want to make your own. I also believe the manifolds are actually quite good.
