Y87?

I looked into it and matched my vin and everything I just paid 1500 for this car and lucked out and got a y87 I think.. it has dual exhaust and the GU5 code for the 3.23 rear end.. and from what I have read is that is a really good factory performance package.. it also has the 3800 series ii.. was this a good find.. I am currently looking to pint it up and put a ws6 ram air hood and I have some headers for it..

Y87 isn't listed in the RPO Codes, so no, your car doesn't have the Y87 package, if it did Y87 would be listed. A WS.6 hood on a Camaro? YUCK!!! Get an SS hood.

I just posted on your other thread, and forgot the codes are on the door. If you want some good gears for it, I would go 3.55 or 3.73. Also if you're going that route I would make sure to get a posi trac carrier if you don't already have one.

Thank you.. it's definitely not slow and doesn't take much to spin tires but I think it could use a little more punch.. would the GU5 give me posi Trac?

No, your 3.23s are in an open diff, a one wheel peel so to speak. Posi RPO code is G80. From the factory you can get 3.42s with posi (which came with the Y87 cars) so its possible for you to pick one out of a wrecked car.
