Anyone, Anyone? j/k I was too late to answer.

Technically speaking you have the L67 engine which is supercharged and standard equipment on the SSEi.

That engine could also be found in all other models based on certain year/criteria that make little logical sense.

But you have an SSEi which means you have the L67 unless someone were to do an L36 swap into an SSEi. Now that would be different, crazy

L67 Supercharged

A 3800 Series II L67 Supercharged engine in a 1998 Buick Regal GS.The L67 is the supercharged version of the Series II L36 and appeared in 1996, one year after the normally-aspirated version. It uses the Eaton Generation 3 M90 supercharger, with different throttle body, fuel injectors, cylinder heads, and lower intake manifold than the L36 uses. Both engines share the same engine blocks, but compression is reduced from 9.4:1 in the L36 to 8.5:1 for the L67. Power is up to 240 hp (180 kW) and 280 ftlbf (380 Nm) of torque. Final drive ratios are reduced in most applications, for better fuel economy and more use of the engine'* torque in the low range. The engine is built in Flint, Michigan. The engine was certified LEV in 2001.

This engine is or was used in the following cars:

Buick Park Avenue
1997-1999 Buick Riviera
1997.5-2004 Buick Regal
Buick Riviera (optional 1996-97, std. 1998-99)
2004-05 Chevrolet Impala
2004-05 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
1996-? Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight LSS (limited)
Pontiac Bonneville SSE & SSEi
1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix
1996 - 2004 Holden Commodore

Series III
The Series III motors include many changes. The upper intake manifold is now aluminum on the naturally aspirated models. Electronic throttle control is added, as is returnless fuel injection. Stronger, powdered metal connecting rods are used, instead of the cast iron style from Series II engines. Emissions are also reduced.

L26 Naturally Aspirated
The L26 is the Series III version of the 3800. It is still a 3.8 L design.

This engine is used in the following vehicles:

2004+ Pontiac Grand Prix
Buick LaCrosse
Buick Lucerne
[edit]
L32 Supercharged
The L32 is a supercharged Series III. Introduced in 2004, the main differences between the L67 and the L32 is the L32'* electronic throttle control, slightly improved cylinder head design, and updated Eaton supercharger, the Generation 5 M90. HP output is up to 260 hp in the Grand Prix GTP, although excessive torque management in the PCM results in the 2004+ being no faster than the 1997-2003 Grand Prix GTP in stock form.

Applications:

Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, GTP Comp G, & opt on 06 GT
