There should be a code on the front of the engine block, below the right cylinder head. If you can post that code, I can tell you what engine you have. :12EMOTICHEERS:

I can't tell from youir information if you have a Trans Am or not.

If not, then it's the LG4, as the L69 was on a VERY limited use basis in 1986, and ONLY in the Trans Am.

IF YOU DO HAVE A t/a AND IT'S ALL STOCK and you think it might be an HO car, IT SHOULD HAVE A DUAL SNORKLE AIR CLEANER with the 5.0 Liter HO decal on it.

Sorry for the caps.

But like Bob said, check the VIN .
