It's not the VIN code, it's the PCM code or "calibration" code. It's independent of your VIN. It basically identifies the "firmware" or programming of your PCM.

It's not the one on the dash. It's in the engine compartment on the passengers side over or next to the PCM itself. It's a 4 character code. Mine is JPC2 for instance. White sticker with black letters.

Mine uses a strategy code not found anywhere. The Xcal picks it and Fred programs for you. The code in your photo looks to short. I'd ask Fred to be sure. Assuming he is the one doing your tunes.
