Theres really nothing significantly different in the SSEi 3800 engine vs. SE/SLE engine 3800, except the supercharger and a few small bits. So I can't see how it would be that much smoother and better than the naturally aspirated 3800...
The ENGINE in the GXP I drove was unbelievable...but the transmission was sloppy and rough. But it might have had a bad engine mount, which is what made my SE feel that way.
