    The Camaro ground effects on the 98+ cars was just called "sport appearance package" Basically a Camaro RS so who knows why they didn't just call it that.

    My '98 Firebird also has the Y87 RPO code. I have read several posts on this forum that said that the motor was modified from the factory as well and the engine code L36 shows it to be a "HO" motor. So, were these motors really any different than non Y87 cars or what? If so, what was the difference? Cams? Pistons? Computer tuning? Just like to know what she's running for internals in the event that I ever have to tear her down. Not that I would anyway, but I don't want to go back with "stock" parts, especially if it wasn't really "bone stock" to begin with.
    Thanks!

    that's all a Y87 gets compared to a regular V6. Everything else is the same
