As far as I know, only the 92-95 SSE or SSEi got the silkscreened logo, but they BOTH said nothing more than SSE.

You'd be surprised at how much GM did to quiet the engine'* niosy sound. I guess many little things add up to a quieter sounding car. I know this was one of the main goals when designing the series II engines. :

From what I've been told it is used to smother the engine when there is a fire. The plastic tabs holding on melt and then the pad drops acting as a fire blanket. Would be neat to see this in action
