Default First year of series 2 supercharged engine???

Hello All! I am trying to find out what was the first year that GM put the series 2 supercharged engine in the Bonneville. Also did GM put the HD auto trans behind ALL of the series 2 supercharged engine, regardless of the platform? I am contimplating buying a used Bonneville, if I can figure out all of this! I am also trying to figure out which year model SSEI had the BIG fog lights positioned real close together. That has got to be the most evil looking frontend I have ever seen! If anyone can help put me in the right direction, I'd sure appreciate it! Thanks!

The Series II 3800 came out in 95. The 4T65-E HD was the standard trans for all the SC 3800 Series II'*. The 4T65-E HD trans does come with different final drive ratios depending on whether it was a SSE or SSEi & what options were selected (IE: performance pkg; touring pkg). The 92 & up SSE & SSEi have the fog lights inside of the headlamps & the SE have the fog lights on the outside of the headlamps.

The normally aspirated Series II 3800 was first put in Bonnevilles in 1995. The supercharged Series II 3800 first appeared in Bonnevilles in 1996.

I think the ones with the closer evil fog lights you might be refering to is 2000 and up when they got the new face lift..

Naw man, I know that the '96 and the '97s had them close together. One of the regulars on this forum has a picture of his black Bonneville with the close together fog lights, attached to all of his posts. I thank all of you guys for this info!

I guess it depends whether you live in Canada or the USA! Here in Canada the late 95'* had a series II 3800 SC engines. The fog lights are the first main difference on telling whether it'* a SE or SSE/SSEi! The wide apart lights are on SE'* only! This started in 92 when GM changed the body design!

Not the SSEi. It was either 96 or 97 for the SC version going Series II. Jeff posted 96, I thought it was 97, but I'll defer to him. He'* been at it longer.
