93 is the last year of true OBD1, with the PCM flash feature, and full on-board diagnostics on the ECC.
93 is such a good year

So would 93 is the best year for series 1? Wow that is cool. Does that mean it would beat a 94 or 95 SSEi in a race?

no, the 94'* and 95'* are faster than the 93.

It means you don't need an expensive scantool to extract PCM codes, and you don't have to take it to the dealer to read the ECC diagnostics.

As Custom said, the 93 SSEi is slightly slower than the 94/95. 20 hp difference stock.

Virtually every year is different, as the weights differ. Almost every year had slight changes, especially in 92/93.

Try google. Nobody seems to know for sure, and they've never been tested head-to-head in identical conditions on the same track.

1994 SSEi 0-60 8.0? (Couldn't find a source but that'd be my best guess.)
1996 SSEi 0-60 7.5 seconds (www.edmunds.com)

I own a red 1994 SSEi and love it to death. I have no mods and can do 0-60 in about 6.5 seconds. It just moves, period.

No offense to you or anything Red Rocket, but what do you have to back that up? Stock tested by like every magazine got to 60 in just under eight if not right at 8 for our cars, especially yours. Just wondering about this.
