You got it there..

My 91 Bonneville LE is 3390 Lbs... My 95 SE is 3465 Lbs...

And at the same time I don't think the series I or II supercharged weigh too much more than the oldschool 3800..

I think the 92-99 H body is about 200 lbs lighter than the 00+, not a huge diffrence

Yes, and "plug and play" is a must for me , i mean for installation, do the 88-91 need a lot of work compared to a 96-99?


And im wondering if all the wiring of a 96-99 SE/ SLE is the same as the L67? or i really need a L67 powered body/wiring ?

Thx guys for any input, appreciated.

you need to talk to Elmacho...he is doing a L67 swap to his SE

you will need the wireharness, PCM,trans, and there are a fre other things like the dual stage fuelpump that the SSEi uses to consider

its best to fund a SE....and get a wrecked SSEi, so you have everything that you need

BadSSEi weigh in at 2800-3000 IIRC.....the nubmer was said many times at the Meet but i now cant remember the exact weight got the life of me
That'* not a Bonneville SSEi anymore.
It'* just a shell of a car only enjoyable for 10 seconds at a time.

3300 lbs is darn light for a Bonne. That'* 500 lbs lighter than mine. So you should be 1/2 sec faster than me.

I'm with Rogue on this one, why reduce weight when you can still add power and have all the luxury and safety
