Default 0-60 times in the SE, SSEi

I cant find them online, what are they?


Also, what are the exact specs of the engine, like valves, liters, horsepower, and such between the SE and SSEi models.

Every listing online has different numbers for them, and which years are you interested in? That has a major effect, too.

Alot of the information is in Techinfo. For hp and tq, you have to tell us what year you want compared.

Moving to General Chat.

You need to be more specific. There is the series 1 and series 2, both NA and */C. There are also different gear ratios. 2.84, 2.93, 2.97, 3.06. One thing I do know is the Series II supercharged is underrated. The factory says 240hp, 280tq. Its more like 250hp, 330tq.

And the body weights changed by year, especially in 2000+.

1992, speciifially the one I own. Its stock, and it might make a difference, but the shifter in it is behidn the steering \wheel not to the right on the floor, more luxury-ish... No exhaust tips showing on the rear end. Cloth interior, the engine looks really boring, looks unlike all the engine pictures ive seen in bonnevilles, non supercharged, its silver with a cheap piece of plastic over the valve covers... Has a strut bar over the engine, not sure if it came with it or was installed later but looks liek the stock one like will'* sig

The engine is silver or the car? It is likely the top of your engine is a beige aluminum upper intake (EGRless). The strut tower brace is stock. 92 SE does 0-60 in about 9.5 seconds, I think. It might be less, maybe 9?

You should be cabable of 0-60 of about ~10+ seconds, Speedy, considering your 172,000 miles. Generally speaking, the low-end torque will give you a greater sense of speed on the butt-dyno.

I have the "GX3" 3.33 final drive ratio as far as I know, but I'm willing to assume that my car would do roughly the same.

Those are identical #'* to what I've accomplished in my 1998 SSE. Sweet I am in SSEi territory -even if it is a 1992.

Back on topic, the 1992 SE also only had 165 hp and 220 lb ft of torque due to not having roller rockers, EGR valve, or composite upper intake manifold -although not having a EGR or composite upper intake manifold probably doesn't matter all that much in the power category when stock.

Ya know, Motor Trend tested a 92 SSEi at 9 seconds, but I've never believed it was that slow.
