Default UPgrades

Good Luck... Unfortunately for us there isn't alot of parts....:(

The best you can do is a better air intake K&N filter and better exhaust. The rest are gonna be homemade.

Hey allmach.

Since my regal, and your Bonne both have the same tranny ( 4t60e ) and the L27, would your Superchip work on my car? I ask only because noone sells a 1994 chip for my car, its weird........

Different PCMS, different gearing is a part of that. Your best bet may be to use say a 93 bonnie pcm... But those aren't made anymore either.

Don't use a 93 PCM. I don't care to look up the research I did almost a year ago, but trust me, don't get a 93 chip. My Superchip was a "custom" job that had minimal affects on how my car performs. I would very much like to look into a custom chip from Domestic Performance or Fastchips, but $300+ is too much of a risk for me.

Forgot to say, if you wanna keep the L27, 4t60e setup, the best way to get aftermarket at this point is to have either an 88-93 or 97-current chip. The 93 with a harness, pcm, etc would be the best. Custom burns on OBD 1/2 will be lengthy, complicated and pricey.

I believe Domestic Performance only does 97-current cars.
