Yes but that motor was yanked at GM Engineering for whatever reason and this motor was installed.. So to properly restore car 90 to INDY spec one would need to duplicate this engine (the MY motor pictured) and decide what to do about the incorrect VIN ( would would probably leave the VIN off all together as this is a unique situation and pulling the wool over peoples eyes is NOT the objective).. It is clear to me that this engine came from another Camaro that was at Engineering for other design reasons so this motor was a spare to the Engineering Dept. This motor was taken apart and hand blueprinted and super double checked so as to avoid any embarrassment at The Race Big Grin
