My 1997 Bonneville SE...performance upgrades suggestions? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Cool...

How many miles on it? Sounds like a pretty nice Bonnie
66,000. It'* been driven by my grandparents since it was new, so it'* been babied. Hopefully it'll get used to being driven hard(er) with me.

Do all Bonnevilles come with a tach? I can't remember if the one I'm getting does or doesnt.

99.99% of them come with the tach

A high velocity throttle body is an easy mod: http://www.zzperformance.com/products1.php?id=223
Ported Exhaust Manifolds are also fairly easy:
