    ...intresting indeed. All i have ever heard about was that 98ls1 f-bodys came with the biggest cam, bc they varied slightly between the years. Injector size was different too bigger in 98 then 99. Not enough to make a difference but for what its worth

    might get more in the internal section, but where did you get this info from? Is this something that pontiac in specific did or GM?

    The 98's had the LS1 intake, a slightly larger injector, and a slightly larger cam (not enough to make much difference).
    01-02 will still tend to average more power stock for stock.

    Like I said in the other thread you posted the difference between the C5s cams and f bods cam is too miniscule to make any difference. Only the ZO6 had a better cam and they didn't come out till 2001.
