PMR or Forged help

How to know if you have pmr vs forged. I have a 2001 truck but when I ordered my Juice for a 2001-2003 some plugs didnt match up. I called Edge they said I had an older truck had to be a 2000 to have those plugs. Title clearly says "2001" but they sent me a 1999.5-2000 kit and it went right in.

Kinda odd, so I guess I have a real early 2001?

Anyway to be sure without tearing the engine apart?

sirnunya,

Thanks alot, I think that plug is above the oil level so I should be able to check without draining the pan. Or am I not looking at it right?

If you pull the plug, you will not drain any oil.

You'll need to get your head up in there real tight to see it.

You can use the crank nut on the damner to rotate the assembly to get the connecting rod right up to the hole.
