    There is a number on the intake I believe someone here surely has it, since your car is a 98 it most likely is a LS1 intake unless the previous owner changed it.

    smash it with a sledge hammer. once its broken into pieces then you can just buy an LS6 to be sure.

    Thanks.
    I would just smash it, then buy a ls6 intake but I am hoping the previous owner has already changed it.

    The bottom of an LS6 intake is flat, where the bottom of an LS1 is curved.

    Moving this to external forum as well.

    Ls6

    Does it have a EGR valve on front of it? The LS1 intake has a hole in the front for the EGR I dont believe the LS6's have it. Thanks lug

    SLP makes an LS6 intake with the EGR provision.
