Vin code for Manual transmission?

Does anyone know if they distinguished the difference between manual and automatic in the vin? trying to find one for a friend and some dealers on have on their site that it is 6 speed...I've seen on some site they list the autos as 6 speed automatic....

I have seen it discussed in the past.

The 5th digit of VIN is "S" for manual and "J" for auto

No. 5th digit of VIN is particular model (LS/LT/SS)

Transmission is not disclosed in the VIN. The engine, however, is....so if you are referring to an automatic - the L99 engine only comes with automatic - and the LS3 only comes with the manual.

My bad Fbodfather I was obviously wrong

I thought I noticed the 5th digit is either "S" or "J". What is the difference? Thanks in advance
