Something to keep in mind is the bonne alternator is a slightly different setup than the GP alternator.

I've been sluggisly looking into if this will work for the bonne as well.

Cool...I looked at the FSM'* for the GP'* and Bonne'*..there is a difference. However I didn't follow through further and still want to bump up my poorly low voltage.

Well I have the orange wire, so I could head down to the electronic supply store and ask for a "1 amp diode" correct?

You can do anything..

The question is.. is your alternator setup the same and designed the same as this one that is in the GP'*?

If so..this should work for you. If not.. you stand a chance of harming the system, which is why I haven't done it w/o being able to do further research.

ZZP shows this V-booster
https://www.zzperformance.com/grand_...ts1.php?id=517
and they state

New version has better soldering. Fixes the erratic voltage issues on certain cars. Now compatible with Regal and other 3 wire applications!

So they are stating it will work with other 3 wire applications...
