    this just came to mind after looking at mafix's post about engines for sale. They always write the engine model with those white pens on the top of the valve covers or somewhere close. I have all my engine information written on my heat shield in a similar way .

    what are the chances its been swapped?

    me2 id guess some part of it had to have hit a wreckers at some time (mines on my timing cover though haha)

    does your car have a rebuilt status thats normally a giveaway as well
