Kurt, I'm wondering if we should go back and ask everyone who responded whether their Camaro is a Norwood or LA car?  Would it make a difference?

Yes, the plant will make a difference. But only on the cars in the transition timeframe.
Grampz, which plant?

It looks like we really need data on cars from the first 3 months of 68 - Sept, Oct, and Nov.
Also be interesting to have some more early 396 data to confirm that they actually used stacks at the beginning of 68 production.

Having a post with a summation every other post takes up a lot of space. No biggie, but don't be offended if I delete or edit down some of the older summation posts. Smiley

Thanks guys!

As Troy reminded me, the documentation shows the 396 was supposed to have stacks from the start of 68. So far, the cars support this.
So, we're back to the original question: when did the SS350 transition to the stacks? It looks like Oct-Nov timeframe, but the plants may have different timing. More data will help tell the story. Smiley

SS350
09D   fins      LOS
10B   fins      LOS
10D   fins      NOR
11B   stacks  NOR
03A   stacks  NOR
03B   stacks  NOR
03D   stacks
04A   stacks  NOR
04D   stacks

SS396
09E   stacks  NOR
10E   stacks
12B   stacks
12E   stacks
03C   stacks
05C   stacks
05D   stacks

Thanks guys!
