    Seems Pontiac followed tradition in the fact that auto's got a little
    less cr than stick.Contrary to belief,48/62/16/12/13 are all rated
    72cc.Not true.12 and 48 are 8-10cc less than the auto heads.
    

    (Let me know if you find any more information on these codes or any not listed.)
