Right on guys, we were looking last year for a replacement for our 89 NewYorker and decided on a 88 LS. Then after looking through the rest of a huge Caddy Olds Pontiac dealership on a Sunday afternoon dreaming about new Auroras and Seville STS'* we went back to where the LS'* were we planed on inquiring about the next day. We looked across and down in the next isle over and spoted one with a sunroof. Hum , let go check that one out. After looking it over quick I begin to notice some differences besides sunroof. Nicer wheels and larger and larger tires and leather and buckets and floor shift and said "woa wait a second." The I begin reading the the window sticker and read 3800 SuperCharged and said " this is the car I'm going to buy". Done deal the next night after work. It as 2 grand more than the LS'* which we did test drive also but I already knew what car it was gonna be ! Sweet car, fast, simi soft rideing, stiff steering, smells good, looks good, gives lots of contentment when driving. Its the wifes driver/ family car..

We have a cheap digital maybe I'll try picture but I'm clueless as to how to down load them.
Ours is a 97 I have seen series I L67 ones on E-bay but dont remember if they were 95 or 96I really dint know they came in them either. I thought just the PA/ Riv and SSEI'* and newer GP and Regals. I dont even think I've heard of a LeSabre (factory) that has it and thats one car it belongs in.

Actually I think the neighbors wish I would finish a project or two and clean up some. I live in the mountains though and the neighbor'* just drive by, they are'nt next door. Most of them know me well, I've been here 20 years and thats before most of them. I keep it neat, I just have too many cars. All run except that damn Riv. and all look decent to great. so its not as bad as it sounds but I do need to finish up a few and sell the Regal drive the LeSabre & 76 Royale with 75 conv in the summer, thats the plan anyhow. Baby - steps - baby - steps

FWIW, I thought I'd introduce myself - been lurking for a while, and just bought a '95 LSS, supercharged.



I had been looking for a while, and had targeted '94-'96 LSS'*. I figured I wouldn't find a SC version in my price range, and they are so hard to find, I was ready to settle for a regular 3800. This one popped up on a dealer lot, and I jumped on it. The combo of the color, the SC, and low miles (47,600) did it for me. The price was right, too.

So far, I've only de-badged the rear trunk (took off the "Eighty-Eight", "Oldsmobile", and the dealer tag). The only mods I plan to do are a transmission cooler, 180 deg, thermostat, K&N filter, Dynomax F-body muffer and high-flow cat, and smaller SC pulley.

As it is, it'* already silly how quick this car is, for a big car. I was into Impala SS'* for a while (still like them, but they are holding their value too well), and this feels at least as fast. I'm really enjoying it, a real "sleeper" with plenty of room for the kids.

Hi

I had a '95 Olds Royale before I traded for my '97 LSS. I envy your "real grill" as the '96'* on up have only two tiny oval ports in which to cool with.

Have you considered "gutting" your airbox? I did both sides of it..and the change is quite impressive.

Hi

After I got the car in mid April, I swapped out the 195 t-stat for a 180, and added a tranny cooler. Despite the "pretty" grill, it runs almost as cool as my Royal did. The '95 header panel will easily fit, so I could always swap out if I needed to.

The car had been diagnosed a few days earlier with a intake leak, thats why the lady that owned it originally, traded it. I negotiated a purchase price with the dealership that purchase it from the new car store where she traded, and then insisted that they repair the leak. They flushed the remaining dexcool out of it and filled with green.

I'll reflush later this summer with yellow-green prestone when i replace some hoses.
