All SSE-SSEi'* have the SSE on the bimper (1992-1999) If you have the SSEi asupercharged badging on the doors, it supercharged. To be on the safe side, look on the dash and see if you have a boost gauge. Look on the shifter and see if you have a perform and normal shift buttons. If you do, your car is an SSEi.

Open the hood, pull off the engine cover and if there'* a supercharger sitting on top of the motor, you got yourself an SSEi.

Yea you could get a SSE or even an SE with a superchager.... on 93 and up I believe.
(I think in 92 you could only get a SC on the SSEi.... I could be wrong)

The 96-99 SSE(i)'* don't have SSE under the hood. They don't even have a light under there either. :(
