Yes sir there are mods! Don't know about chips, but you can send your PCM in to have it reprogrammed. But not much gains to be achieved there unless you do some hardware mods first.

Where to start? Really depends on how much you want to spend.

Here is a good website that sells performance mods...

^^ This. Money is your biggest deciding factor.

Easiest and cheapest thing to do, if you're up to date with scheduled maintenance, is a cold air intake and exhaust. After that, you can look into a supercharged top swap (L67?) and get a tune.

ok thanks, money isn't a huge issue, i mean I'm not gonna go overboard and spend thousands of dollars at once but maybe a couple hundred here and there, and where would i find cold air intakes and exhausts? I've looked everywhere and it seems every website that pops up for me turns out to be a scam

Probably the best option for you...
Cold Air Fender Well Intake....
http://shop.zzperformance.com/store/...ll-Intake.aspx

3 inch downpipe for your Bonneville...
http://shop.zzperformance.com/store/...-Downpipe.aspx

Complete exhaust...
http://shop.zzperformance.com/store/...k-Exhaust.aspx

High Flow cat...
http://shop.zzperformance.com/store/...onverters.aspx

Not sure on headers though. Some have had issues with fitment. But they sell them also...
http://shop.zzperformance.com/store/c/67-Exhaust.aspx

They are pretty much a one-stop-shop for all your 3800 needs.

What says its for a GP?

And not sure on HP. But anything upgraded is definitely worth extra ponies.

like under options it has type of car and the only ones list,for example under the exhaust,are GP and no bonnies so i was just wondering, and the down pipe also is for a '97-'03 series 2 and i know mine is an '05 series 2 so i didnt know if that played a factor or not
