i just noticed you mentioned SSEi white. I find it hard to believe the engine would have seized. On the Series II NA engines (no Supercharger) the intake manifold is plastic which evantually causes some serious *** damage to the engine

Why was that engine seized?

The one he looked at was a 93, he doesnt know alot about cars but he mentioned something abou the front or rear seal, ran out of oil and either siezed the engine or severly damaged it.

I've owned mine for just over two weeks now, and I'm already addicted to it. I wish I would have bought a Bonnie years ago.
