title says it all. are the last digits of the car's vin number (the serial number) the same number stamped on the engine block and trans sticker that originally came on the car?

is there any relation to the serial number on the eng/trans to the vehicle itself?

or is the trans' serial number the same as the original motor paired with it from the factory?

Both my 97 & 99 have a vin plate right on the tranny so unless someone removed it... I dunno if 92-95 has them but 96-00 definitely does.

'92 - '95 don't have, I also have yet to see a '96 with a vin plate on the transmission.
