What kind of engine?
« on: April 15, 2010, 05:34:32 PM »
I have a 2002 Firebird Formula with a 5.7 Liter engine.

Yep...an '02 would have the LS1!  I think '96 was the last year of the LT1.

Nope 97 was the last of the LT1, and 98 was the start of the LS1

In the Firebird...I guess I was thinking about the corvette when the LS1 came out in '97.
