Default Performance question

http://zzperformance.com/grand_prix/products.php?id=110

Can I use these exhaust performance parts on my 1997 Se Bonnie?
I believe that the bonnie and the Grand Prix are both H bodies right?
Does that mean that they have the same exhaust bends?
Also, is my Series two engine also known as a L67?
My engine is not supercharged.
Thanks allot.
Stephen.

Grand Prix is a W-Body. Your engine is a L36, not L67.

No. You're Bonny and all Bonnevilles are H-Bodys NOT W bodys. W-bodys are Grand Prix and Regal, H-bodys are Bonneville, 88, LSS, and LeSabre. You do not have a U-bend.

Only certain years.

Have you read Techinfo yet? Have you done the basic first mods? Have you started with a tuneup first?

How about "I have this, what should I do first? This is what I want out of it"

I'll move this topic to the right section for you.

Headers aren't the first step. You need to open up that front end first with a good intake. Change your thermostat, and look into some preventive work on the L36. That upper intake will KILL your car. The LIM gaskets too.

We'll get you in good shape, then move on to the headers, but honestly, the headers won't do you much good until you get higher ratio rockers or a cam. PEM'* may suit you better at this point, and cost quite a bit less.
