Actually no.. it doesn't have the same engine. That'* why it'* the least powerful.

In 92 the engine didn't have roller rockers.
93 saw the roller rockers and retained the same M62 Gen 2 charger as 92
94 got the M62 Gen 3, yet the power rating was not updated
96 got the M90 Gen 3 charger and a 240hp rating
From there only the most minor tweaks were made.

While you might not have the most powerful motor, it'* a lot more powerful than most out there. Fuel mileage is good, costs are down. Sounds like a good situation to me.

it'* not quite that easy Chad. Mods aren't that easy to find and they don't add that much HP to his engine. If I had something prior to a 96, I'd drive it stock and be happy that it runs and drives so well.

Let'* think about it.. that is a 19 year old car. Not too shabby how many are still on the road and doing good.

sometimes a good running, riding car beats just having power
The 87-88 Vin 3, 3.8V6 HO made 150 Hp @ 4400 Rpms and 210 Ft Lbs @ 2400 Rpms Rpo LG3
see not the worst
