Either this is a joke, or you better hold off selling until you figure out what you have.

CRR is an LS6 TH400 Code. The last 9 digits should match the VIN.

I would think you would know if you had a numbers matching LS6 Vert as you'd be sitting on a 1/4 Million or so.

But if an "authentic" LS6 block was installed, it will increase it's worth.

I'd verify that number again, and if it is truly CRR, then I'd take a very good close up photo and post it for authentification.

An "original suffix" stamped LS6 Block can be worth $10K by itself.

Thanks to those who have posted a helpful response. Just came on this forum to ask a question of people that I thought would have more knowledge than me and were fellow Chevelle lovers. If anyone can help me I would like to know if a CRQ is a correct suffix code for and LS5 automatic. Please don't respond if you don't have a helpful answer. Thanks

Hey Larry, CRQ is correct for an LS5 automatic. On another note, asking a question is one thing, but wrapping it around a for sale ad is another. There is a classified section on TC that's been very usefull for a lot of people. If you have a car to sell, list it with some good pictures and I'm sure you'll get some action on it.

Hi maybe its a CRQ

Is it CRR or CRQ?

No offence implied, but both do not seem easily confused.
