    Main thing about the 98 is the PCM
    Not nearly the best of the fbodys
    If it were me i would keep the SS, more mileage but its your car and you know how it runs, plus its 2 years newer
    Unless your crazy about the formula i would keep the SS

    Just the fact that if you want to get it tuned they are not as easy to deal with

    If you can prove the formula is a ws6 it may be worth it $ wise. Does it say ws6 on the door if so thats one rare formy I believe they only made a few hundred ws6 formulas. If not I'd keep the ss. The thread up top should display all the little differences for 98 smaller gas tank, pcm, valve covers, and the fact that the block can only take a hone where the later models can take a small overbore.... But nothing really wrong with the 98's they run great.

    nah it's not a true ws6 it has the ws9 hood actually. but the miles thing is no big deal in your opinion?

    LS1s will last a lot longer than 90k if they are cared for

    I vote keep the SS. When the time comes to replace the LS1, you can go with another LSx engine as there are many options available.

    120K on my LS1/Tranny are great, rear end took a major shit... But most of the guts is going in an 01 Firebird for mother, still has plenty of life left. I'd say these engines with proper maintenance should easily hit 200,000.
