    Honestly...the biggest difference is the heads. Perimeter bolt valvecovers. They don't flow that bad, but are the lowest flowing out of the F-Body LS1 heads.

    The cam size is SO minimal, it doesn't make much difference.
    199/209 498/497 119.4 for the 98-00 years.
    196/209 464/479 115.9 for the 01-02 years.

    Down the road I plan on putting on the LS6 manifold, heads and hot cam it so thats not that much of a worry for me. Any ls1 is better than the whimpy inline 6 thats in my jeep: im thinking of offering the guy $12,000.

    Skip the hotcam.

    If you are looking for something smaller...go with a TR224.

    6. Steering wheel controls were completely different part with indentations on the buttons, and were better built

    12. 1998-1999 LS1 cars had a smaller throttle body cam, which caused the throttle to open to WOT (wide open throttle) faster than 2000+ cars
    from the sticky itself. i haven't driven another one hard though so i don't know what the response difference is.

    I was refering to the actual cam inside the motor...not the TB cam. The TB cam size difference wouldn't be noticeable.
