Dear catahoula-- You can get that info from the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Look at the eighth digit. If it is a 5 you have the 330hp. If you see a P you have the 300 hp. Not bad either way, I would say. You might get a kick out of going to the following site-- They have a lot a important info and a lot of trivia about your 1996 Corvette. Good luck from Bovan.
