the 010 ( the 3 digits of the casting #) blocks have 2% more nickel & 1% more tin

also like braceteer stated the dipstick wii be on the driver's side

i know it's hard to see the casting #'s while the engine is still in the car. so if you have one apart, right behind the timing chain cover and timing chain(on the 010 blocks i don't know about the others) there will be numbers stamped into the block. they will say 020 & 010. which means 2% more nickel & 1% more tin
