    Yep, I was speaking out of turn, the '98 did have the LS1, my bad...
    I believe the stock '98 only had one exhaust outlet, is that right???
    Were the horsepower ratings claimed by the factory the same for the 98 and 99 models???

    on the low end torque issue, it doesnt matter.
    ive raced over 20 early to mid 90's fbodies and had on average over 2-3 lengths over them. they might have more low end power but how long do you stay in that range.
    (also im running 4:10's in the rear )
    my car is pretty much stock (for now!!!) lol
    If you have the means and the desire, be prepared to do whatever it takes.

    so far:
    suncoast creations functional ram air setup,pacesetter LT's/ORY,magnaflow,pro 5.0,hurst stick,LS6 cam,4:10 gears/stock rear(screaming for mercy!!!)
    -still more to come!!!!!!

    It's, funny, I've heard that LT1's had more low end power and that an LS1 was all topend too, but I've seen quite a few race each other at the track and it's never like the LT1 just jumps in front of the LS1 or anything. I'm thinking it's proabably BS. I'd be curious to see stock dyno graphs from both though.

    The LS1 does have the meat of the power in the mid to high range, but I feel that it still has more pull on the low end than most LT1's.
    (assuming stock vs. stock)

    back to the exhaust- it is dual outlets but there is one pipe after the y-pipe to the muffler.
