Hey guys,

I had a quick question. Everytime I go to a mechanic or just even bs'ing around with fellow car guys, I always get a "wtf" about my vin #. yeah, I know its a VIN number, but it has an X in it. I'm sure it don't mean squat, but does anyone know why they changed it over for the V or whatever it was on most of the 97's? I know one difference is the water pump pulley, but thats it. Just something I've been thinking about...lol

if im not mistaken, v is 16v; x is 32v. 304 rwhp from only those mods; on a gt? sounds like a 32v motor in there -i.e.- cobra....

Since some people didn't read your sig, it does say SOHC. If you're referring to the 8th digit in your Vin # then X refers to a Windsor Sohc engine. Easy to verify by the valve cover bolts. You should have 13 bolts and a passenger side oil filler.
