Default Update 9-20 - My new other Bonneville! No 56K

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=85660
This car is great! It'* so clean, and the engine looks almost like new! The previous owners had taken great care of the car. For example, the transmission fluid has been changed every 30K miles. I can't tell the car shifts, and it feels like there'* only one gear. That'* cool. The engine has been running synthetic oil with 4K-mile changes. Have a look at this awesome car!

Congrats on the new car! Looks pretty nice!

Do you know if the upper intake has been replaced?

All parts are original. The owner had written on the ignition coils and such for the firing order and such. Why do you ask about the manifold? Does it look different?

Very nice!

How do you like that gatorback on a NA car? I had one on the L36 in my sig for 90K miles and hated it. It was so noisy. Makes an obnoxious whistle.

I don't think the Gatorback makes any noise I can tell from the engine. I'll change out the belt as necessary, and if it really makes a noise I can discern from other stuff, I won't go back. Thanks for letting me know.

Yeah, I love the color. It'* very fitting.

My gatorbacks are quiet, too. All 4 of them.

Is that a deep cycle battery? If so, get it out of there before it kills your alternator.

Car looks great. I always loved that color.
