You're Alberta? So is Deathrat. He'* a GM parts guy at a Dealership there.

I'd seriously consider going with a 96 if you can afford it. The 95 was a transition year between OBD1 and OBD2, so there are no aftermarket chips available for the PCM. 96 was also the first year of the Series 2 L67.

Good luck, and welcome to the club!

Wasn't there a big transmission change between the 1996 and 1997? We used to have a '96 SSEi but got rid of it after 3 years cuz it was doing some WEIRD things that the dealer didnt want to fix. The ONE advantage of leasing - it got exchanged for a 99 Catera. Funny - our 88 Bonneville is still rollin' along after longer than I care to admit

Don't quote me on it.. but between 96 - 97 I don't think there was much of a change.. 96 for SSEi was the transition year from Series I */C to Series II */C engine along with tranny.. I believe both year received 4T65 HD tranny.. anyone care to jump in to prove me wrong or confirm it?

Don't make me spank you for being wrong. You should know better, mr. 97.
