    I've been looking all over for the engine specifications of the 1998/99 VS SS V8 Utility. I would like to know how much power they come out factory. does anyone know of a website with this information displayed?

    Presumably the 98 model used the VS V8 and the 99 model used the VT (roller camshaft) V8.
