There was something majorly wrong at least tuneup wise with the SSEi. Your 92 SSE had the less-desired valvetrain to boot.

New for new, off the lot, the 93 SSEi will kill the 92 L27 hands down.

So, here'* what I think. SSEi should obviously be faster than a stock 3800 of the same year. My friends camaro ('94 3800) doesn't have near the kick of my SSEi. I'd say that on average, I can FEEL about 25% more power. That'* [obviously] a conservative number because I don't want to blow things outta proportion due to my bias towards my bonnie
94 camaro'* do not have a 3800. It'* a 3.4 i believe. Only the series II engine was RWD.

glanghus as for the '94 3800 powered Camero, BonneMeMN is right Series 2 was the first 3800 in a Camero. As for the link to JLAUDIOECLIPSE post here it is http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=26458 It got moved from MY RIDE into ON THE ROAD AND AT THE TRACK.

I guess I didn't know the 94 'maro had a 3400. It'* my friends car, and I'm just going by what he'* told me...I don't know anything about the camaros. All I know that it is RWD, and for whatever year it is, it still looks pretty sleek.

Marty'* car kicked the crap out of mine when we were side by side at about 75 -80 and put'em down....But I've done some tuning and cleaning since then....but his N/A just pulled away from me.But I got almost 200k on it now, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the umpth it used to....but it does very well for it'* age. I can kick the snot out of a 3.8 mustang GT...I've done that a few times. Just my 2 cents FWIW.

Willwren, you are very right. I had forgotten that I had to replace my harmonic balancer. This was probably one of the factors. Plugs and wires may have been bad as well.

Thanks for saying that. Hell with a good number of Cars running 13'* from the factory, some don't consider that fast. But i wasn't gonna invite that flame fest alone...

While it is true that 13s, 14s, 15s may not seem fast, it is fast for a 6 cyl and a heavy one at that. Check out this list which lists the fastest production cars ever for north america. There are only 2 4cyl, and maybe 3 6cyl cars on the list in the 13 range, everything else is big name 8 cyl cars like vets, porches, maserati, MB, etc....

http://www.autofacts.ca/classics/fast.htm

13'* may not be fast but for a 4 door luxury sedan to take on these big names is outstanding....Need I say what 12'* means?

Look, viper
