It actually seems to be just a bit fast than my 95 SSEi was before the pulley and intake. Even though the Bonnie only had the FE2, and the PA has the F41, the PA isn't quite as quick in the corners, and the steering feel is slightly less precise. That said, it is definitely a fun car to drive! I did a barnstromer run up the road from the highway to Blue Rock (which is pretty tricky in some spots), and she just FLEW. She'* not a perfectly flat cornerer, but for a car this BIG and oversprung, she does really well. When you hit a tight corner, you can feel her lean just a bit, and then, very calm and business-like, proceed to clamp herself to the road. No tire-squeal, no skittering across the corner when she hits a bump, no uncertainty of "is she going to understeer out of the corner and into mid-air off one of these sharp bends?" You brake in, and accelerate out, and she just goes where you point her, no muss, no fuss. I'm sure that a really hot driver could make her scream like a choked chicken on that road, but for me, she'* perfect.

I haven't figured out yet if the Vette or F-body brakes fit, if that'* what you mean.
Umm, what size are the brakes on the 2000+ Bonnie? The PA has 13" rotors up front, stock.

GonneVille, I had no idea what a sleeper that car was. Looks great and I know its on the same rigid chassis as my car. very comfortable on long drive and super fast when you need it. Car looks as new at the 2005 Ultra i saw at the dealer I got mine. That cars sticker was $41,000

In other words a new L67 car is still more than new N*'ed Bonnevilles.

'05 Ultra?
Something is funny at that dealer, cause the Park Avenue was discontinued after '04, and the "Ultra" package went with it. Could it have been an '04? When did you buy your Bonnie?

Hmm...I just found out that the PA is still on the market. My bad, it wasn't on Buick'* website, though.
