Default 1992 Bonneville SSE

I am looking at a 1992 Bonneville SSE, and I need to know if it is supercharged. I have asked several other websites (Edmunds & Yahoo), and they have given me no answers. The reason I am confused is because I know that the SSEi keeps bouncing between an actual trim, or a supercharger package on the SSE. Bottom line, is it supercharged? If you need descriptions, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

How many belts does the engine have? If there is a pulley higher up then the alternator then that is a supercharger.

If I do get it, any suggestments on color? I think green is hideous.
P.*., VIN is 1G2HZ52L0N1255329, didn't think about it earlier...

You sure? Thank God. I am in high school, a supercharged car would be too much for my future low income, with gas and all, plus insurance.

100% sure. There is not a pulley there for a supercharger and that'* the N/A upper intake

Well, thanks. By the way, how long are these 3800s supposed to last? This one has 175,000, how much longer 'till it dies?
