    You're sure it's a Z28? My guess is he has badged a V6. Emblems are cheap...

    Can't answer the tranny question, I am not that advanced. Yet.

    it seems that i heard that early 98 models had single exhaust, but i cant find confirmation. and the car also has 10 spoke wheels....is that signifigant to the v8 cars?

    Early 98's did have a single exhaust. I looked at a 98 WS6 once with a single exhaust. Pretty wild.

    Z28 also came with snow flakes which is what the 3800-II cars have.. 3.4l came with salad shooters or steelies with hub caps. I could have sworn a single tail pipe exhaust came only on like one year of SS but I'm not totally sure..

    Could be an econo muffler too.. They are cheap and usually in stock.. I always had to order my Z and Iroc mufflers.. I used an Iroc Z muffler for my z34 before my project.. They cost more than the factory single setup on my Camaro, but were cheaper than having 2 mufflers the z34 came with....

    You're right. I believe it was only in 98, but it was only on the SS, had single tip out the left side that came straight out, not turned down.

    beat me too it . all 98 WS6 and SSs got the single outlet exhaust ..this was actually the best flowing exhaust out of the 4 years. It looked nothing like the v-6 turn downs.

    Yeah I knew they had better flow, but I was'nt sure on the year.. For the record my single outlet on my y87 was almost twice the size of the z28 muffler I replaced it with.. It was so quiet you actually could'nt hear the car running standing right next to it.lol

    I would think it may have been an option to get the dual exhaust?

    I do believe it was actually the other way around. The SOTL exhaust was the option above the dual exhaust.
