Hello. The 2.0L engines are mechanically the same, except the SE has the HOT (High Output Turbo) whereas the non-SE has the Ecopower Turbo. The 20 extra horsepower doesn't make a night and day difference, but it does increase the fun factor... a little more boost never heart anyone! With all the extra ground effects and now the HOT available in all SE's... the SE is worth the extra money where for 99 (unless you got a 5-speed), i'd say save some money and go for the non-SE.
