• Original (old style) GM Part #12585994: 2007?2008 (uses cam core 156?family)

•Current (new style) GM Part #12606358: 2007-2009 and newer engines (use cam core 189?family).

The difference in the camshaft core is the pin to centerline position. The difference in the pin between 156 and 189 works out to 13 degrees cam retard (if a 156 is used where a 189 is required).
