Default Series II Horsepower?

Was there a difference in power in the Series II motor between certain years? If so what were they. Thanks.

I believe all NA Series II 3800'* are rated at 205 from the factory and all SC Series II are rated at 240 from the factory.

That'* why I like it. And it is supposed to be lighter than an SSEi. I havn't varified this yet, but I would love to find out for sure.

Well, I was aware of the fact that the 1995 SE was the lightest, but I have the Supercharger and the HD tranny, not to mention the dual outlet exhaust. On the other hand, the "soft ride" suspension probably doesn't weigh as much as the FE3, and without all the other SSE/SSEi ground effects and goodies, I still think it is lighter than other SC'd '95'*. I just wish I had hard data.

And yes, these things do run like scared rabbits from hunting dogs! That is one of the reasons I have such a bad traction problem. I can't lay into the accelerator very hard at all or it will spin my wheels It is very difficult to get it to hook up. If I lay into it from a stand still, it will shift into second while spinning. That can't be good for the 4T60E-HD. I am hoping that Ty or Hector will come out with a good shift kit for the 60E, and maybe later I will look into a LSD--if my tranny lasts that long

Easy to find out approx how much your cars weighs. Look on the driver door for a sticker. Look for GVWR (Gross Veichle Weight Rating) and subtract it from the max capacity the tires can hold. That is the weight of YOUR car. I believe there is a shift kit for the 4T60E, I know I found it once online. You can either buy it or do it yourself, its just changing out some springs to tougher ones which is the mechanical shift kit (I prefer). I will try to find it again for you, if not, we could just make one, either way.
