e99 or 99.5 motor?

bought my first diesel off my dad, its a early 99 7.3 by the manufacturer date, but my dad told me that the motor had been replaced before he purchased it. How can I tell if the motor is a early or late motor?

EDIT, i know there are some differences in the turbo and intake but wondering if there as any model numbers on the valve covers or turbo that i could look for

Check the PCM code. If it's a xle code chances are its an early 99 motor. The PCM is located on the firewall by the emergency brake pedal.

well just went out and checked on the drive side valve cover, 23 feb 99 so i would assume that this is a 99.5 motor? the driver door says 06/98 also the intake comes from the front of the grill. note i do not have a cruise light, ill check the PCM code

There is a thread dedicated to the e99. This will answer most of your questions.

You have the good forged rod motor. They didn't come out with the 99.5's until 12/98. Also the engine serial # is under 142xxxx i beieve.
