PMR or forged connecting rods in my 2001

I did some searching but could not find the direct answer...

I have a 2001 f250 7.3 DI with a build date of 10/2000, does anyone know what the cutoff is on the forged/PMR connecting rod engines?

Is there anything short of removing the oil pan to find out if it has one or another?

Basically the truck has a HyperTech 3 stage puter' upgrqade, a cold air intake track with a K/N unit, and a 3 1/2 all the way out the back. I am looking at possibly playing with it to add more power, but obviously dont want to push the envelope if it has PMR rods.

thanks!

Here is the engine serial number break down for the forged and powdered connecting rods. Check you engine serial number on the valve cover build sticker or you need to look at the block where the oil cooler is bolted to it .
Start of production thru 1425746 are Forged Rods
1425747 thru 1440712 are Powdered Rods
1446713 thru 1498318 are Forged Rods
1498319 thru final production run are all powdered

"If" your talking about the sticker on the left valve cover, then it's missing, I see where it was but that's about it. I'll have to wait until it gets warmer and I'll check it out.

I appreciate the help....
