But hmm, this is from Wikipedia

STE version

The STE featured a 2.8 L High Output V6, a stiffer suspension with air-adjustable rear shocks, quick-ratio steering, upgraded wheels and tires, and sporty cosmetic touches.

Pontiac envisioned the 6000 STE to be a sort of "technology showcase" for the division. Keeping with this theme, beginning in early 1984 the STE came standard with a digital Driver Information Center. The Center kept track of oil changes, tire rotations and tune-ups; alerted the driver to low fluids or burned-out bulbs, and warned of an open door, trunk, or hood. Steering wheel controls for the cassette stereo and 4-wheel disc anti-lock brakes arrived in 1986 for the STE. A unique laminated anti-laceration windshield was used on the 1987 6000 STE, and a two-position memory driver'* seat was a special option on 1987 to 1988 STE models.

1988 and 1989 STEs were available with a rare full-time all-wheel drive system, a fully independent suspension and a new 3.1 L V6 and 3-speed automatic transmission. Engineers even designed the rear suspension of the all wheel drive 6000 models to accommodate four wheel steering, but this never moved beyond the planning stage. 1989 was the last year for the 6000 STE (now standard with all-wheel drive), as the STE badge was moved to the front-wheel drive Grand Prix for 1990. However, all wheel drive was still available as an option in the */E trim for the 1990 6000. As in previous years, 1990 */E models with all-wheel drive came with the 3.1 L V6, a 3-speed automatic transmission, and anti-lock brakes. About 3,700 all-wheel drive models were produced between 1988 and 1990.

I got it now. My bad again. I don't think it would be too difficult to use U-body AWD parts on a Bonneville. Most difficult would probably be the floorpan.

The believe the Aztek had 4T65E and the awd models had the rpo M76 for the 4T65E w/ Power Take Off Unit for the AWD.

I would think this would be a little more simple since we know the trans will hook up to the engine

I'd love to see more info on the 65 AWD trans since it could handle the power better.
The 6000 AWD trans will bolt up though.

hmm the tunnel on these cars is nowhere deep enough, it would hang unbelieveably low. and exaust would be a major issue. but hah, they managed to put a bonne on an IMPALA SS frame and drivetrain, so heh, what ISINT possible?

I think the Bonnie on the Impala frame had to have the tunnel altered. I'm not positive, though.

The STE 3 speed auto would last maybe one trip around the block with an L67...
