we owned a 92 SE and a 95 SSE at the same time. The 95 felt much quicker in all driving conditions compared to the 92. The SSE drove like a totally different car.

did the 92 feel like it was something holding the car back and the 95 felt like it would just glide down the highway and really light? I noticed this with the 93'* i drove and the 96. The 96 is real powerfula dn if i take my foot off the accelerator at 65mph, it will stay there for a lil bit before it slow down unlike the 93 it will slow down instantly.

That'* because the Series 2 delivers it'* peak hp and tq at a higher rpm.

Series 1 will be quicker off the line because of it'* lower rpm peaks, but fall short at upper rpms as discussed above.

My 95 shifts out of first at 5900-6000 at 47mph... So yeah buddy it was almost 50 mph...

Yeah, they shift in the mid 40'* out of first. Series II L67'* are much higher though due to the 2.93 gearing. Our SSEi shifts at 5950rpms which is 56mph out of first.
