Default New 95 Bonnie SE owner, what can I do?

Recently purchased a 1995 Bonneville SE. I love my ride, but of course I want to hook it up. I've been lookin around have been quite diaspointed by the lack of accessories available. So, I figure I'll have to get creative! I am wondering if anybody knows any cool tricks that are easy to DIY. Also, does anyone know if a grill off of a 94ish Bonneville SSEi will fit my 95 SE. What about a bumper? (I want to make room for dual exhaust) Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Step one.... Gut the airbox or build an intake for it...

Camaro Firebird Muffler, Magnaflow or Flowmaster will do... There will be several with more answers for you...

The 95'* are a strange breed... First year for the 3800 Series II engine, last year for the PCM( Computer ).... Changes changes changes... You can also get Ported manifolds, 1.9 rockers.... List goes on and on...

Hey another PA member!!!!

and could you checy your spear tire cover for the H4U code....you might have an SLE

as for the Mods, there are ALOT for the SeriesII engine

you can change the Grille BUT it will be too small and look out of place, the same goes with the bumper....you still can put a dual exhaust on a SE/SLE

Welcome to BC! Spend a little bit of time and you'll find there'* quite a bit you can do. Performance has already been mentioned and there'* plenty can be done there. From an appearance standpoint, you can do things like angel eyes, clear corners, pillar pods, LED grill lights and more only limited by your imagination.

Some sites that could help (from the TECHINFO section):
www.angryducktofuracing.com
www.domesticperformance.com
www.pulleyboys.com
www.zzperformance.com
www.thrashercharged.com
www.3800performance.com
http://intense-racing.com/
www.grandprixstore.com

Here'* a TECHINFO article to start you off:
First Performance Mods

and lots more! Get it here, get it while it'* hot!

Default Thanks!!! More ?'*

First off, thanks for the quick responses.
I do have plans for the air intake. I have found them on eBay for about $30. Any one have any experience with these?
I am specifically aiming more towards body mods at this point. Any ideas?

the Ebay ones are JUNK.....go to autozone and get the Spectra one for hte Civic/ integra, and then you need to make a heatshield

and as for body mods check out my car...and hit me up on AIM

Default Thanks and more

I would like to thank you all for your input. I guess I should tell a little more about my situation. I live up North, Erie Pennsyalvania, where we usually get tons of snow. So, I don't want to lower the car or get too big of wheels cause we get pot holes big enough to swallow Hummers. Also, my budget is pretty tight right now, because I am an un-employed student who also happens to be married with two children. So any mods must be economical and practical....for now.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I guess I am looking mainly for body mods. Dont want to go to "ricey". I guess I want it to be custom, but not too flashy. Yet, anyway.
Ultimately, i 'd love to go all out with suicide/lambo doors, ram-air hood, custom paint and big wheels, but that'* all a distant dream for now.
