Default '95 SSE Engine

I've been looking around to see what can be done with my engine, but it seems that the options available for bonnevilles are fewer once you get older than a '97. I know that from 94-96 changes were made all over the place: Series I changing to Series II, body style changes, etc.
Is there anything different with my non-SC Series II than with say, a '97 non-SC Series II??

PCM is different. I think you can still go to a smaller SC Belt, put in a 180 stat, heat range colder spark plugs. You should be happy with that.

A 95 and 97 is the same. The only difference is the tranny which in you're case is a 4T60-E but for the 97 is a 4T65-E. All series 2 should have mods for it. A lot of companies say 97-03 because thats when the series 2 started being put in the Grand Prix. Most 3800 performance companies revolve around the Grand Prix. Why? # 1: the demand is very high. #2: the demand for Bonneville parts didn't exist until a couple years ago. You can get any performance part a series 2 can get.

They have a diffrent rear exhaust manifold and your 95 dosen't have a map sensor but the 97 does. They also use diffrent coolant, i think and it'* not good to mix them? Nothing too diffrent though.

That is a HORRIBLE intake. If you get a intake make sure it goes right up to the headlight assembly. If you get a intake like the one in the picture it will just suck up the engines heat and you will LOSE power. I feel bad for the supercharged engine in that picture. It must be getting 10* of KR.

Here are some sites you'll want to look at.

Does anyone make an aftermarket OBDI/II PCM?? Or are there any chips out there for added performance?
