    I can't find the builder identification on mine. Passenger side or driver side? Hard to see or is it obvious?

    It isn't there. Mine is a 2016. Wonder if they changed the location?

    Is your car the Z06 with "Z07" option? Only the "Z07" has the individually hand built engine; the standard Z06 car does not!

    It ISN'T a Z07 package ( I wish I had it for my racing contests). I thought ALL Z06s had it but I think you are right; there is nothing there and it's not a Z07. Bummer.

    The engine for the Stg.1 Z06 car is built in Tonowonda, NY; however, if one orders the "Z07 Performance Package" along with the Stg.3 Aero on his Z06 then the engine for that car will be hand-built in Bowling Green, KY by one of the GM Specialist and will be tagged with the builders name. GM assumes that if one is ordering those options at that much additional cost involved they are planning to track the car.

    So if my engine was built in Towanda; did a robot build it? What is the difference in "hand built" vs. Towanda built, exactly?
