My parts car, the XLT has a September 1996 build plate.
I have to wait for the Limited to come home.

that's a pretty late '96 build date. over here manufacturers will sometimes use new model year (or previous model year) parts in production when they're switching over. maybe that's why you have a SOHC in a '96, or maybe it was an export thing.

The Ltd has a 1996 November build date.

I've got 1997 in my sig so I don't have to always explain that I really do have a SOHC and yes it was factory fitted.

Sounds good to me, as long as it doesn't leak.
