Default what series is my bonny?

Hi! I have a 1993 SSEI vin# 1G2HY5214P1254902.
I'm finishing the fixes on it but I like to know my vehicle as much as possible. This one is a salvage title (only front end damage) and didn't come with any manuals or paperwrork. I have downloaded the user manual from your site. I would like to obtain a service manual and some serious specs. At least a set of diagrams to let me identify the different motor parts and their location etc. Wiring diagrams etc.
Does anybody have any of this in file? Or maybe you can direct me to where I might find it.
Please!
I'm eager to work on my car and kick some but!

Also: The parts to fix my car where too expensive from the dealer and aftermarket parts were just too cheap, so I bought a second bonneville at the auction (this one with a rear side hit) for parts.It'* a 94 SE. I understand that I can post parts for sale in the site. But, where exactly? I want to sell the engine, tranny, interior etc. Basically everything execpt for the hood, front lights, and grill.

There is a section near the bottom for selling/wanted. Also try ebay.
93'* are the series 1 still, and you got the SC model. Your SE is most likely not.
Chilton'* manual is a good source for tech stuff you want, and you will need it if you plan on fixing up your car. Good luck!

Correct. You have 205 hp, 260 ft/lbs of torque. Torque is what it'* all about with the Supercharger.

The Chilton'* manual you want is #28200.

Thanks for the info. 205 is a lot beter.
Now, I guess the first step for upgrading after the car comes out of the paint shop would be to install a cold air intake followed by new wires and plugs.
I think this would be stage 1. What do you think I might gain out of that in HP?

Also, how can I post pictures of my car as it comes along?

Thanks

you could get a smaller Supercharger pulley to add extra boost, and think about some exhaust work. such as headers,muffler, high flow cat, etc...but if your going to be doing all this you need to think about some transmission work as well, because that engine could soon be making more power than the tranny was built to handle.

Would a new torque converter and cooler just about solve a problem with the tranny?
