Other then the National Corvette Museum is there a way to use my VIN and find out what options came on my car?  Really wanting to know if it has the standard 2.54 gears or the optional 3.07gears?  Probably going to change them out to 3.27 or 3.45 to get a little better take off.

VIN # will not get you that information.  You can check other online places like Corvette Action or google 1996 corvette.

For this information you will need the build sheet, or the RPO sticker.

Build sheets are available from the museum, or the original may still be on top of your gas tank 9good luck getting it out in one piece)

The RPO sticker for your car should be somewhere if it has not been removed. Not sure where they put them on the 96.... try the glove box or the underside of the console lid.

Yuppers...this is where the Service Parts Label will be. It will give you all of the CODES for the equipment/options the car was built with. Form there, it's just a matter of de-coding it. Thumbs Up

what transmission? I think manual came with 3.07

Build Sheet is located behind the passenger side taillights on the 1996 underneath the gas tank strap. I managed to get mine removed earlier this winter and it was in very good shape. Although my car happens to have only 35,000 miles and always garage stored.

Thanks for the Info.  I will look in those 2 spots later today.  I really just need the codes.  I was able to find out what gearing I had and opted to go with the 3.54 gears for the car.  I have them en-route now along with a set of EMracing 1 3/4 LT Headers and a Borla Cat back exhaust system.  I also contacted Lloyd Elliott in Texas about a head and Cam package.  I was going through some posts on the internet from like 2009 and found his name.  He is still there and doing heads and cam packages for these Gen II LT1 Cars (1600.00).  EMracing also has a head and Cam package, but his stuff seems a little higher in price.  I am not sure about doing the heads, I don't want 4-6 weeks of down time waiting for them, so I might end up getting just a Cam for it and a Yank 2800 Stall converter.  If I can find another set of Gen II heads, I might just buy them and send those off to get done so the down time will be shorter, but for now I think my plate is full.  The wife got to watching me run the 1/4 mile with my Father last year and decided to see what her Vette would do stock.  I think she got the bug and now wants to go a little faster then a 13.7 @ 99 MPH.

Yes! Go to 17vin.com and plug in your 17-digit VIN. It will tell you what ALL OF the RPO codes for your vehicle are! The codes should be located on the sticker in the glove box, console lid, or in my '96, in the storage compartment behind the passenger seat. I realize this is a somewhat older post, but I thought someone might still find this useful.

Brian,
On my '96's (both of them), the RPO sticker is in the storage compartment, behind the passenger seat. I have a '96 Collector Edition and a '96 Polo Green (both coupes).

How did you get the build sheet removed exactly. I was only able to tear a piece off and gave up.
