if you need any info about the swap, contact me.

also, you do not need to wire up the dual speed fuel pump. you can just swap in a warlboro pump and its just the same and it flows more than the l67 setup would.

Ryan'* car weight on the exact same scale was just at 4000 lbs. IIRC he had a full tank of gas. Todd'* Bonne was the only car that was heavier then Ryan'*.

The only thing about reducing the weight is that it will be easier on the drivetrain.

Nothing against you but I can't believe that BadSSEi'* weight is even 3000 lbs. Intense claims that the Intense turbo cars weight is 3050 lbs. That is in a GTP with plastic windows, no PS, no PB, custom everything, no air to water I/C and everything that includes, etc. So either the Intense turbo car weight is alot less then what they claim or BadSSEi weight is alot more.

Here'* the weird part. While the 00+ Bonneville weighs more then the 99-, the Lesabre weighs much less. The 00+ Lesabre is only around 3500 lbs, not sure why the Bonne is so heavy. Also, when swapping, the engine does not weigh more but the transmission definately does, so there is a weigh gain.

as i said I cant remember exactly but that number seems to come to me for some reason...I may be way off on that weight, but i know that The only stock Parts on BAD SSEI are the dash, on the inside, Everything else is gone......

Todd Can you give us the weight of the car??

I agree with that if you go on the road.
