This right here is what confuses a lot of ppl. Even myself at first. On the 95 SE and SSE had the 3800 Series II NA 205hp/230tq put up under the hood, but the 95 supercharged still carried the Series I 3800 with 225hp/275tq. In 96, the Supercharged SSEi finally gets a Series II and more hp and torque, 240hp/280tq.

I wonder did the Regal, the Park Avenue, the LSS Eighty Eight, or the 98 went through the same confusing changes?

Now that you said it, I agree with you. Is it GM'* trend that the H-bodys had the same trait like the W-bodys had? THe LeSabre, Park Avenue, Bonneville, Eighty Eighty, 98 all had the same changes and tweaks and the Grand Prix, Regal, I think Intrigue, Monte Carlo, and some more cars had the same? Didn't the LSS and the 98 have the Series I Supercharged also?

THese cars have actually been around for a minute. I remember the actual Series I body with the Eighty Eight LSS on at the same time in the back on the trunk in skinny lettering. The otherLSS is the 96-98 I think these are the years, that you might have noticed becuse of the big chrome lettering in italics. LOL!

If you're considering a car remember that if you get ANY N/A Series II, your intake manifold will break. I saw will, not might for a reason. There is no recall, and there wont be, and it'* minimum $700. If it'* not caught in time your engine will seize. If reliability and cost are a big thing to you, go for a series I engine. I drove a series II in a 95, but the little more umph wasn't enough to change my mind. And besides, you can always do some simple mods to the car, and make it sound great, and perform as well, if not better then a series II.
