    I wonder if the VIN is stamped onto the block in Mexico or Brampton? I'm going to guess Brampton since it would be a logistical nightmare to generate a VIN at corporate, build the engine in Mexico, stamp the VIN, ship it, and have it end up in exactly the right car on the production line. Might be that the engine is taken from the waiting palate on the line and the VIN is then stamped as it's installed.

    OK, Brampton Builder, help us out. How's it done?

    My guess would be Mexico. I don't think it would be that hard to track, organize, etc. if you watch the ultimate factories video, the way they store and retrieve parts is amazing.

    Brampton does the vin and I think Mexico does the serial number , vin is stamped on eng / trans on all models not just hellcats. We done this for a long time

    Mexico just ships racks of engines they have no idea what cars they will go into.

    I didn't read that thread since I wasn't interested in a sublime car. Thanks for posting the link.

    What I like is that the Hemi Orange is powder coated instead of paint on past engines.
