    Default Chevrolet VIN decoder

    2GTEK13T151163487

    I have anice little ford vin decoder, just enter the complete vin, and
    it spits back the info...

    anyone have a good resource for an 05 chev truck with the vin above?

    All I really want out of it is the rear end gear ratio & engine size.

    the 8th is engine, T = V8 4.8 or 5.3
    T L25
    LM7 5 cyl. 4.8L (292 c.i.d.)
    8 cyl. 5.3L (323 c.i.d.) fuel injected

    and i guess you can't get the gear ratio anyway???

    how do you get the gear ratio of a truck?

    Which rear end will offer best fuel mileage?

    For a gear ratio on a GM, you need the "RPO" code. Look in the glove
    box for a label or sticker with a bunch of codes like A25, B16, etc
    One of them will be the gear ratio, IIRC it will be one starting with a G.

    there is a decoder here
    http://www.s-series.org/rpo/

    best gas mileage is with a low numerical number ie a 2.73, but you
    lose acceleration and pulling power. No free lunch !!
