Just to clear up a repeated misconception I've seen a few times on this thread. In order to reduce confusion, auto makes do not use "O" and "I"s in Vin numbers and if IIRC there are a few more.
Also, I'm ok with providing a vin, but they get so militant when I cannot is what bugs me. I put the EZ engine into my XT... I needed motor mounts, but the legacy I got the engine out of is long since crushed. Parts guy demanded my vin and after a few minutes of arguing about how I don't have the right vin, I offered up a different idea.
I gave him the vin off of my 89 XT-6 and then said "Ok, now that you have "A" vin, I need motor mounts for an 03 legacy with the 3 liter"
