There is no TO in the suffix it has to be IL/IQ = 390 HP engine and IM/IO = 400 HP engine and IT = 430 HP engine and IT/IU = 435 HP engine. The 390 hp is the L36, The400 hp is the L68 , and the 430 hp is the L88 , and the 435 HP is the L71/L89 version of the corvette.
Re-check your # and make sure what you have the # you have posted says it is a 427 engine. Also what intake is on it single or 3x2 tri power?

This is badly incorrect info, the "T" does not mean "truck" block and never has. "T" stands for Tonawanda Engine Plant in Tonawanda, New York, where all the higher performance Chevy engines were built. Tonawanda also built ordinary truck and car engines.

Block casting # indicates 68-69 427, 2 or 4-bolt mains.

I couldn't find a reference for the "BN" code in my search.

You might try a Corvette specialty forum, they are likely to know more.

Yep that's what i have found in my corvette book T = Tonawanda .
I was hoping it didn't stand for truck for the op sake anyway.
I never did find anything on the BN code either Eric.
