I heard back from Pacesetter the other day regarding the fit for the Bonneville. I will post the email tonight when I get home for everyone to see. the more and more I think of it, TOG'* are looking pretty good!! The Shock mount doesnt look like it needs to be modified as much as Boost'* with the SLP'*

Tony...you are taking into account what Todd said about slip fit etc?

Motor mount is easy, see my thread in P&B for 96-99 mount.

I would go with the Pacesetters. They are inexpensive and surprisingly nice quality for what they are. Your heavier car will benefit from the added top end of the larger primaries as well.

Thanks!!

For the whole slip fit vs donut gasket, I did not have trouble getting my used TOGs to seal.
