Chilton'* manual #28200, page 1-11 has them all listed. This book is usually on the shelf at any auto parts store. It covers the Bonneville/Eighty Eight/ LeSabre for 1986-1999. That'* the best source I know of.

I'm not familiar with any GM source, but if that'* not good enough for them, let them wallow in ignorance

Your car is listed as (93, Vin 1, SC):

[email protected], [email protected]

There is some possible erroneous data on this page, but 93 is accurate. For instance, the 95 and 95 Vin 1 are PROBABLY inaccurate. It lists the 95 as being the same specs as the Series 2 which didn't appear until the following year for Vin 1.

I really needed something by tonight printed out so I can laugh in these ppl face and maake them feel or becaause they sware up and down that the Impala SS last big body year was in 98. My friend has a 93 SSEi like mine and says he has 240hp. He won't believe me when I say he has either 205 or even 225hp. I gave up and wanted to see if you all knew a link.

carpoint.msn.com has some stats and info on used cars dating back to '87 or '88. Not completely reliable, but close.

I'm not liking that they used our SCed 3800 Series II in it.... they should have toned it down with a 3.1L or 3.4L SC engine.

Doesn't the Monte Carlo have the same engine? NA and SCed?

I say its about time they joined the family, chevy being supercharged that is. I remember when they just started usung 3800'* in the LTZ Lumina'* and the Z34 Monte Carlo'*. Yep the Monte Carlo SS is supercharged too!
