Default me = confused

ok, im WAYYY confused about the nameing of our engines. Ive been reading the tech info, peoples sigs, posts, etc and am confused on the naming of our engines. i have a 1988 LE Vin C and the tech info page says its a "Series 1", it dawned on me that i could get the ADTR intake for the series 1 motor, then i got way confused when i remembered that my dad has a 1993 SE and according to tech info it says his is a series 1 as well. would hte ADTR intake fit on both even thought the airbox and tubing looks different (1988 vs 1993)?

92-94 Naturally Apirated engines are the L27, which is an improved Series I.

So really the early 3800 series back in 87 and back are considered as what. Just a 3.8 litre? That is what is advertised on the side of the cars if it had a 6 cyl. engine.
