Build Date?

The build date on my 01 is August of 2000. I was curious what motor internals I have then.

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



Plus I would also follow the instructions in the above post.

1947752 here...


But I already knew that.

Strokin', I haven't seen that info before, i've always gone by the build date, knowing some dates are fuzzy. That's good stuff as usual from you...where did you get that from?

I am a site floozy, I roam the forums for good meaty info. Then I compare, verify and then compile lists. This was posted some time back on another forum and I spent a few days verifying the info so I was not spewing bad info.

Me likes good meaty data......

I totaly agree, hence why I said to follow the DI instructions that you posted above. The dates are a guide but the only way to know is by physically checking.
