Are their VIN tags on our blocks? If you really want to know, you could CarFax the VIN. I can't remember if it's on the block, or just the tranny. (There's one on the tranny right? ;) )

thats true but they did have the engine code stamped on them.

Youre definitely looking at a complete swap then. Just run the VIN if youre worried its hot

00 si engine should have VIN on block. Its on the back side where the oil filter is. I dont' think you can do anything with the number under the block stamp. At least I don't know of anything.

Check back side of oil pan where oil filter is. VIN plate is stamped there as well for that year engine.

00 si motor vin is on the front of the block by the oil pan behind the header. only single cams carry it in the back by the alternator.

the number under the ID stamp ( which is block serial number)
can be ran by the police to see if a motor is stolen. but authorities will only check a block if it is in their presence so that they can take it if it doesn't check out. they wont do it over the phone.

the first number is the year of the engine (meaning 5= 5th year of production, 6= 6 year of production) and the remaining 5 digits is the serial number

also 94 and 95 tegs have no vin plates just a block serial number fyi
