You will need to find a donor car to do this job the most cost-effective way possible. If you want to stay with a 4t60 transmission, a '96 will do fine. If you want to go to a 4t65, 97-up is the way to go. Maybe you could try contacting Ed Morad, as he deals with nothing up GM FWDs, and *might* could get you a packaged deal on everything you need.

Still too much $$. You'll still be lacking the handling performance.

SSEi suspension is quite an improvement. I think after you estimate your swap costs, you'll see the logic in selling the car and buying an SSEi. Ultimately, if you feel you can justify the extra expense, then go ahead.

yeah but not as much worries going with a turbo as it doesnt hit as hard on acceleration as a */C we have already seen several GP'* run mid nines, yes they are rebuilding transmissions but not after every pass i would be more worried about the internals of an older engine then the tranny. one weak rod could lead to more problems then a bad trans.

OP do yourself a favor and check things over well and when your all done check again . might be worth searching for a rebuilt motor or better yet a wrecked bonne with the */C motor.. direct swap

Full swap. I agree with you RAGXP. But even better than that is to sell the SE and buy an SSEi. From a money and long-life standpoint. You get the performance and the handling for the least amount of money.

The pres of our local ClubGP branch is running an odd rear-mount turbo set-up. It short-cuts the worst of the fabrication, as you use stock manifolds or headers, and you don't have to run an intercooler, because the distance between the motor and the turbo allows for a lot of exhaust gas cooling. You still have to do the standard mods like cam and heads, but it can save you some cash over a regular turbo setup.

He'* running STOCK? Jesus, isn't he in the mid-thirteens? If he goes up to a turbo cam, you may have to start worrying...

We have two Bonnevilles running 13.5'* on stock heads and stock Cams. Both on the West Coast. Neither are even intercooled.
