So, I got my Chiltons manual, and decided to check my VIN code, just to get the specs. The code for my year was a 1989 (correct), and Engine code Z. Engine code Z is the 5.9L with EFI. The problem is, the manual does not list this as a possibility in 1989. Any ideas?

May be a 1990 build engine or it may have been swapped? I see "Z" in the 90-93 parts book but not in the 88-89. Could be a late year build RC or they may have run out of 89 motors and installed a 90 engine at the plant?

Whenever I need parts for my '89 they always ask if it's a "Y" (5.2) or "Z"(5.9), so someone knows about it... ;D
