Yes that is an L98. The 350 and the 305 look identical from the outside except for casting numbers, however that is a true Formula350 with the stock L98 but has been converted from the 700R4 Auto to a T-5 manual trans. The L98 was not available with a 5spd because of the torque of the L98. Let me say.. it its FUN to drive. Very Happy

Very Happy No worries, alot of people question me when I say its a Formula 350 with a 5-spd. Because that particular combo didn't exist from the factory. When I was looking for a car my only requirement was that it was a L98 car. It was my DD for several years. The auto started to have problems and I had a friend with a complete donor car. We did some trading and I ended up trading an old 86 TA I had complete with yet another bad 700R4 in return for his labor and parts. I of course helped with the swap but he did most of the work. (he's a mechanic by trade). Log story short I got the car I always wanted but could never find because GM couldn't warranty it. It wasn't until the Lt1 and T56 Combo in 93 that you could get a 350 with a manual trans. Needless to say I've beat the piss out of that car and that T-5 still takes a licking. Broken a few rear shocks, a Torque arm mount, and alot of tires, but the Transmission hasn't missed a beat. Added a manual console from a 94 TA and a Hurst short throw shifter later on and I couldn't be happier with it. Smile
