Default Series One and Two differences...?

What aftermarket parts are interchangeable between series one and two?
And can I install 1.9 rockers on my engine?

There is nothing that directly swaps over between the two besides, the oil pan, coils&ICM, valve covers (L36), and possibly other misc. stuff..

so the valve covers for a l36 will work, cuz I saw the polished ones on one of the websites. I was really wanting to get some rockers.

I'm fairly sure they are the same. Hopefully someone else will chime in.
I think there may be rockers available for your heads? I can't remember where it was discussed but 93 may have been when they changed the rockers/studs. Don't qoute me on that though.

If you want rockers for your series 1 then these are it.

Since you have 93-95 series 1 heads you will be fine. 92 series 1 heads were different.

If you want aluminum covers on the cheap, use the covers from an S2 3800 F-Body (Camaro, Firebird). They will directly bolt up, look good when bead blasted and clearcoated, and make for a nice conversation piece. Only problem you will face with them is that you lose the mounting tabs for the spark plug wire holder up front.

Mike...you know the coils aren't the same. The S2 L67 coils throw a hotter spark.

Newer heads will just bolt on to the 92 engine. The advantage that we have is that he can use the heads of either naturally aspirated 93/94 or supercharged 93-95 3800, because they all use the same heads! I plan on changing mine to be able to install rockers along with a few other mods!
