Default 1995 questions

ok so i have been looking around on 3800performance, wbodystore, zzperformance, and intense racing. so why is it that nobody makes performance parts like headers, PCM'*, etc. for 1995 bonnevilles?

They do. They just don't list it.

Assuming you have an L36, almost all the bolt on'* for a 97+ L36 will work on your 95.

As far as tuning goes, search GMTuners/Sinister Performance.

And check out my cardomian for the whole mess of stuff I did to my 95.

Pre-96'* don't have to have the whole PCM re-programed, just an e-prom chip in a removable memcal that'* inside your PCM.

Sinister Performance can make a chip for you.. But in order to get the most out of it, you really need to scan your car to see how it'* behaving currently. And more importantly all tune-up items should be fresh.

Just shoot him an e-mail. He'* a good dude and will take care of you.

Yep. Been riding off and on since '98.

Where are you at in PA?

They don't make adjustable shocks for our cars. The GP/Montie/Regal stuff won't work.

I would stay away from KYB GR2'*. I had them on my car and they couldn't keep up..

The only other option really is Monroe, I think. Hopefully others will chime in.

This will depend a little on what options this SE has... Most are FE1 or soft ride.. A few are FE2 which is ride and handling..

There are a few changes you can make to the suspension to make the car handle a good bit better..

For the Struts I would recommend Monroe Sensatrack or Monroe Matic Plus struts all the way around..
