Default New member, may need help soon!

Hey everyone!

I've been a proud owner of a '02 Bonneville SLE for about 8 months now. I'm not very advanced with car mechanics or modding, so all I have at the moment is a Spectre Cold Air Intake. Everything else is stock.

I'm looking into upgrading to a '02 or '03 SSEi, and I'm very excited! I may need some help with suggestions for exhaust and a few other basic mods that I'll have my friend help me install. I'm trying to do a little research before I get the car, and hopefully you guys can give me a hand. I'd appreciate it!!

02 SSEi huh? I wonder who might have one of those...

Oh look! I do. Hahaha.

Yeah man, there are plenty of great mods for our cars.

INTENSE-Racing.com - G8, Grand Prix, Bonneville, Regal, L67 3800 Supercharged Performance Products.
ZZPerformance (Use the GTP section)
3800 Performance - high performance aftermarket car parts for your Grand Prix, Monte Carlo, Impala, Regal, Bonneville, and V6 F-body!!

Also, for the exhaust besides what'* usually listed for our car (headers and Hi-Flow cat), you can weld in a set of Flowmaster 40 series and be nice.

Welcome.
LOL!! hilarious Bill. And yes welcome to the forum. A word of caution, the mods and mechanical expertise received here could result in ur car becomin a high powered street performance vehicle, easily targeted by cops and other law enforcement authority.

Hi Harry;

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum. I joined here with a stock 2000 SSEi and money in my bank account. Be careful what you ask for!

Don't listen to that hub bub about targeting by cops Harry. Leave the exterior stock, the exhaust as quiet as possible and you'll enjoy the "must be an old person'* car" protection.
