Default limited slip on a v6?

hi everyone, long time no post. so, for a school project today, i was trying to make my 98 v6 do a burn out, or at least peel out. i wasn't really that successful in getting the picture taken, but i noticed something strange, i left two tire marks instead of one. i thought that the v6's didn't have limited slips, and that they were just right wheel drive. was i wrong about this? i can't seem to find anything on wikipedia or google. thanks guys!

Jack the car up and spin a wheel. If the other wheel spins in the opposite direction then you don't have a posi, you have a regular open differential.

It's possible to leave 2 tire marks with an open diff if each wheel has equal traction and you're going in a straight line, but it's very very very very unlikely. You'd need near perfect conditions. Try the same thing with one wheel on a loose surface and another on pavement. The wheel with less grip will get more power and spin like crazy if it's open.

SOME v6s did come with them, but they were very rare from what I was told. Most of these v6s also came with dual exhausts

I have the dual exhaust as well. and it's definitely a limited slip. What have I got here? Did I miss something when I bought this?

The first owner most of ordered the car like that.
Thats a good thing, be happy and enjoy lolll
I had a way stranger car than that. A 69 impala with big block
from the factory and beleave it or not, drum brakes in the front when disks
where available as an option for 25 bucks. That car could move but
it couldn't stop lollll. Traded it in for my camaro.

Check to see if you have the Y87 package. Should be on the drivers door if I'm not mistaken. You could also verify if you have ALL of the following, LSD, 11.4" single-piston caliper rear disc brakes (same rear brakes as V8), a dual outlet muffler, 14.4:1 steering ratio (same as V8), 235/55-16 tires. 3.42 (RPO code GU6) rear gears if you're an auto. 3.23 (RPO code GU5) for stick.

If you have the Y87, you more or less have the parts that were reserved for the V8 cars but with a V6. If this is true, your car is pretty desirable.

Out of 33,973 V6 models produced in 98, 7,291 of them (21%) got the Y87 package.
That's almost one out of every four cars, not too bad of odds.

Would it just say it on the door? where would it be on the sticker?

rpo sticker should be on the end of the door or in the door jam. in some years they are in the glove box or center consol. its a paper sticker with a bunch of codes with letters and numbers. look at number 8 and 9 on the list here 4th Gen: How-to and FAQ - Have an issue? Start Here
