The 92/93 SSE/SSEi L67 have 260 lb ft of torque which is about 30 more than your 95. Even though you have the same hp # the SC is going to accellerate faster due to the torque curve being very flat, although in the higher rpms you will probably pull even due to the power dropping off at an earlier rpm in the S1 since the SII 3800 makes it'* power up top.
I will say though, with just the basic mods a L36 can put a stock 92/93 down, but not by much -maybe .2-.3.

For stock #'* you will find when new a L36 Bonneville with the 3.05/3.06 gearing would run a 1/4 mile in a around 16.1-16.5 and a 1992/1993 L67 car (Park Avenue Ultra, Bonneville SSE/SSEi, Oldsmobile 98 Touring Sedan SC) run the 1/4 at about 15.7-16.0 depending on the driver and track condition and temps.

But for the same money, a 92/93 SSEi (particularly the 93, which has more power than the 92, regardless of the fact the rating didn't change) can destroy a mildly modded L36.

Not only does the Series 1 L67 out-torque the L36, but it does it all much lower. With a couple CHEAP mods, the L36 is hard-pressed to keep up.

As an example, my bolt-on-modded L67 can take a stock L67-equipped GTP. At least up to triple-digits, where the GTP starts to gain ground.
