"I agree" If you feel like taking a risk why dont you get Pacesetter headers.

For 349.99 you get headers and the 3" downpipe as well. I am going to be putting these on my riviera instead of my DYI-PEMs. From what I have read about them they seem to be getting good reviews except for a exhaust leak on the Y connection because of poor performing clamps that come with the kit. I wish you luck on your build and keep us (especially me posted)

The Fittment on a Bonneville is going to be different, those are DESIGNED for a Grand Prix, not Bonneville.
The powerlogs will work, front mani is the same, rear mani has an option for Bonneville/Regal, And If I need to upgrade to a 3" down, it can be done easily enough.
The Pems I have arent ported a whole lot, as they DO flow better than stock, they still leave me with some to be desired, nothing like the Manis on my 93.
I bet the Powerlogs flow EXCELLENT.

Just remember to have the PCM tuned to the Power Log. It throws off the balance of the Fuel tables and you will run into issues. Also No Header was DESIGNED with the Bonneville in mind but they also fit so I wouldn't count the Headers out yet.
