This picture was taken before I moved anything. No MAP sensor present.
BillBoost 37 said: "Most have a sensor wire up there as well"
SO I'm assuming that means that some don't . Like mine.
So, should I have a spring with the PCV?

MAP sensors are only on the full-OBD2 cars.

95 SE'* don't have them.
92-94 SE/SLE/SSE don't have them.

92-95 SSEi'* have them ONLY for the boost gauge. So a supercharged SE/SSE will not get one either in those years.

So is the spring found in the pcv housing only required if a MAP sensor is present?

The spring is not present and or needed on the 1995 SE with the 3800 Series II V6...

On the Tuned Port Injection L27 3800 V6 there is a spring with the PCV valve...

And the Series 1 L67 has a spring. Not sure about the Series 2 L67.

Your 95 SE did not come with a spring in the PCV housing and you don't need to add one.

No problem...sometimes we throw numbers around here like they are going out of style, and forget that plain, simple, communication is just as effective.
