    Does anybody know what the v engine code is? I looked on a website but it does not list a v. Also what sites give a discount to members, I am thinking of making the big orange jump & was curious.

    BTW, if the V is the second to last letter in your vin number it will mean it was built at the Pontiac plant

    thats impossible because the last six digits are the sequential unit numbers

    Thanks, I didn't think to look in my LMC catalog. It is 74 350 and I forgot I took the 2 bbl off when I bought it.
