    Ok, I have search here and online for this and have found it no where. Marclars "Vin decoded" on here says I have a 3.8L in my car so that instantly is not trustworthy to me. So... Is this Vin a Vin 3 or P? I am hoping I have ordered the right cat.

    Cool, Thanks for the help, I have looked at like 6-7 different "Decoders" and none have actually fit my car at all.
