Default 92 SE with what looks like LN3?

Pics look like an LN3 style engine, unless my untrained eyes deceive, little too high on the price anyways IMO.

hmm, nope. That is the EGR-less L27 with the aluminum UIM.

ok yep I see the lack of an EGR, does the aluminum intake mean its never been changed or was the plastic one removed? Isnt the EGRless one the one to avoid?

early production 92'* had the aluminum intake instead of the composite. My brother'* 92 Bonneville back in the day had the aluminum intake as well.

There are some really high mileage 92 L27'* out there running like a top. Don't be scared of them, but don't pay 2500 for one either unless the whole car is in really really nice shape.

Hmm, that'* an early early 92 L27. Magnavox ignition. Easy enough to swap in the Delco if it has a problem.

Interesting features:
Two tone interior
SLE style rocker panels
Optional alloys
...and is that an N10 muffler or water drips...?

combined with a column shifter.
