The heads are the same for both blocks. It'* cool because one day I may buy your L27 heads for some porting madness!

We'll see what I'm left with once all is said and done

Doesn't the L27 have higher compression than it'* Supercharged sister?
What makes the difference in compression? Or am I wrong on that?

Only partially.

S1s, no matter the trim, had the same compression. S2s are the ones with different compression.

So the heads are the same?
The Blocks and the Cranks between the two engines are the same, the Pistons and rods differ slightly..

For the 1993-1995 Years on the L27 and the 1994-1995 L67 the heads are the same..

93 heads are also identical on the L67.

Only 1992 had different heads.

Correct, I was just thinking of the Roller Pivots that weren't used till 94, but the 93 Heads are identical like wren said

Three options that I am looking at:
1. Rebuild this thing ($1800+) + Trans ($1500-2k)
2. Reman L67 Long Block ($1600) + Trans ($1500-2k)
3. Buy another '93 SSE /w 'well over' 200k on the original trans and motor ($600) + get previously mentioned Series II L67 /w everything ($1800) and wire it up while still driving the same car, except it'* a green version...with silver aeros...

Most likely and less time consuming is #2, #3 seems cheaper but slightly far fetched...that would be hoping that that car wont become a money pit as soon as its bought., but could be parted out/sold if not...

Don't let the wiring scare you on doing an S2 conversion...that is still a possibility, and probably the cheapest route to go.

The wiring isn't that bad.
