95-SLE is on a distinguished road
Default The New Guy

Hey guys. I'm 19 and I have a 1995 Bonneville SE. Black with the gold honeycomb rims. I'm a big Pontiac fan and love my car to death. I'll post some pictures later.

Anyway, I got the car from my parents (who owned it since '95) when I was 17 and I just hit the big 100,000 miles with it. My friends and I actually took it to a drag strip and had it going exactally 100 MPH when it hit 100,000 miles. I fell in love with the car and didn't want the Sunfire that they were planning on selling to me. It also just passed inspection and they said that it has better emissions than some newer cars.

I guess I saw these forums and I am planning on upgrading a few things. New speakers, headunit and maybe some 12'* in the trunk. Also planning on maybe putting in an intake to maybe improve on the alright pretty good highway miles.

So, just saying hey and hope some of you don't mind the questions that I might ask

Hi and welcome.

Being a 95, you would have the series 2 engine and the composite upper intake manifold. Being over a 100K miles, you need to be aware of the possible failure.

On way for linky.

Edit: Got it
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=38

It'* a must read for anyone after 95 with the composite intake. Better to be informed than to end up needing a motor.

Welcome to the club... They have posted some great info for you... I do ask that you please read up on the intake issues if the car has not had that problem repaired or it hasn't been done in the last 5 or 6 years...

And as for the emissions, these engines were designed with emissions in mind... When the Cat is up to temp, these cars are actually very clean and emissions are down to .0002 grams per mile... Almost nothing...

Welcome to BC!

Take a little time to read up on some things...

Go to TECHINFO (above) and you'll see some good articles there, including one that discusses your intake mod options, or search on "CAI" and you'll see tons of threads on that. All else fails, you can feel free to ask whatever questions you need.

Eek, that sounds pretty bad. I was going to do a lot of checking about the parts since it is around an 11 year old car with +100K on it.

Here are some pictures:






Just went fishing today. A little dusty and dirty!
