Default 1992-1993 Main differences?

Reason I'm asking is that I know of a 1992 Bonneville SSEi dark red, 48,000miles, and in mint condition for sale about 5 hours from me, I've contacted the owner before and he has told me about it. He bought it new in 92. He is also an older retired gentleman. Really a nice car.
My concearn is performance. Would a 1992 with low mileage give me the same performance as a 93 that has the same mods on it, im talking about 2.2 SC pulley, CAI, 180 thermo, and a chip. I know there is some diffrences between the heads on a 92 and 93, but im not to sure if this results in less performance?







Looks pretty mint to me!
asking 5900 cdn, which is 900 more than what i paid for my bonny with 145,000 miles on it at the time.

Definately would want to ask about the strange placement of the SSEi badge on the trunk...

mostly the heads were the big thing with the valvetrain. the 92 was EGRless but that dosent apply to the L67. there were some quirks like all cars that are in the first year of production, but there are some differences

Didn't the valvetrain change half way though the 92 year?

If I remember right the 92 was egr'less and the 93 had it....maybe the other way around......but the egr'less motors had a lot of problems wrecking valves.
