Hopefully some one will be able to assist you with that answer. How do you know your #?

The first XLR-V Vin# is 1835 and they expected average 4.5 cars would be a V , however acording to your numbers, every 2.5 cars would be a V. That seems way too high to me unless they stopped making reg XLRs for some period. The hand built engine is the choke point and I can't see them putting them out at a 2.5 pace.
My Vin#is 2121 and I was told it was approx the 35th, since it took time to ramp up initial production.

There must be a source to get the full listing........

Ford has been utilizing the hand-built engine program for many years now with their SVT products, every motor is hand-signed by the build team. The engines are built sperately though, so I would think that would not slow down the actual assembly. Each SVT product is individually numbered and is accompanied by a certificate. Too bad GM didn't think that far ahead. It would solve the problem of figuring out your build numbers.

Yeah i no but i thought that SVT not going to produce anymore for ford i thought they were done because i was reading motor trend and if anyone of the workers wanted to contine to work for fored they had to take a job that was worst so must of then left and split up.
