Don't forget the Series I supercharged and Series II N/A have the same hp: 205hp. But I would think the Series I sc would have more tq.

Yes and no.....the 92/93 has 205hp, the 94/95 has 225 stock.

And the SSEi weighs very little more than an SE. Very little. The torque is not only higher, but a much flatter curve, and delivered at a lower rpm. The hp is also delivered at a lower rpm on the Series 1 L27 and L67.

Must not forget this if you intend to race one. BTW, I have a measly 205hp 1993. Wanna race?
