Base 3.8s did not get posi, Y87 3.8s got the posi. Or at least that is my understanding of it. If you have RPO code G80 you have posi.

More than likely you will find GU4 - 3.08, GU5 3:23 or GU6 3:42. G80 = posi.

I see RS sideskirts so maybe he got lucky and they spec'd it out with GU6/G80. I know I lucked out and got that on my Firebird.

Ground effects is the Y3F RPO code. Has nothing to do with the G80 code lol

Right... What he was saying that it was common for cars with the ground effects package to also be ordered with a posi. Not that the options have anything to do with each other but that was a very common way for dealers to order them.
