Default New to Pontiac

Hello all. As the title says I am new to Pontiac cars (never drove one until I test drove the 03 Bonneville I am buying on the 24th). It'* a SE with a 3800 Series II. Don't know much else about it other than mileage (93,000) and what options it has (CD, cruise, power everything, cloth interior, AC, and spoiler). I'm hoping to save enough money to drop a supercharger in and do other stuff to it.

There'* a lot of work to installing a supercharger in a naturally aspirated car. There'* still a lot you can do to make a NA car go fast. Welcome to the world of Pontiac.

Welcome to the forum mate!! A 2003 SE with the Series II is a good candidate for supercharging. I think by 03 Pontiac had beefed up the transmission to handle the major power increase, prior to that in 1994-97 the series II had issues with the tranny with horsepower increases to 205 HP and 245HP respectively

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum. It'* not impossible to add a SC to a NA motor, but if your up to the challenge, good with some wrenches and have the time and money it can be done.

I have the last two and I have friends and family that are really good with cars that can help me. I'm not much of an auto tech but I can do stuff if I have someone guiding me through.
