Call the local parts stores and ask for 98 camaro ls1 valve seals. That should be what you need

It shouldn't matter, but Autozone might still sell different materials for intake and exhaust. Everything I have seen from BTR and Comp is viton, but who knows with a place like Autozone.

Viton is what Lethal uses in their kits. I also had spares when I did mine, since they are fairly easy to mess up when installing.

Get some extras, just make sure they look similar when installing (dont buy the seat/seal in a single piece like the stock LS3, since your spring set comes with seats)

When you are putting them on, I used a shop rag, sometimes doubled or tripled over on top of the seal, then I went through my smaller deep sockets for the exact size so that I didnt cave in the middle or slip over the outside, and lightly tapped with a hammer.

While hammering you will know when its done when the sound changes, the first three hits will sound like banging on cloth/rubber/etc, the last one will resonate throughout the head since its seated <--if that makes any sense.

There will also probably be a gap between the bottom of the seal and the spring seat, a few hairs. Trust me, they wont go on any farther, I messed up a couple trying to close that gap when the seal was already 100% down.

If autozones dont look right, check with Car quest or a local shop that works on LS cars alot

I will chime in..As you know you have to press them not hammer them on..I hammered the first one on and screwed it up fortunately I had an extra bag of them. I would use the right ones pink or blue iirc? The exhaust seal has to handle more heat. Good luck.

i used all the blue viton ones that came in the cam kit and 2 Comp Cams 511-16. i have 14 extras. I did hamer them on and they had no marks on them when i was done. I damaged the one because i used a rubber mallet instead of a metal one so I didnt notice the change in sound.

Sounds like you are in good shape. My mistake was hammering the piss out of it and realized I had screwed it up.
