Can anyone help me on the issue of the vin # matching the numbers on the block? Do they always have to match? I GTO car and the engine is a GTO but the Vin # is different from what is on the block above where is inprints the engine type. Mine is a WS. Thanks

Look next to the timing cover on the same side as the WS. There will be numbers there and that should have the partial VIN at the end of the series.
