Does my replacement 7.3 engine have PMR's?

I have a 99 7.3 with a new engine that i put in about 2 years ago. My understanding is that a 99 7.3 should have the forged rods and the 01+ has the PMR's. My engine was a new replacement from a Ford Dealership for my 99, when i installed the engine i didnt know about the differance in rods, and now i am looking into a custom chip, and would like to know what the rods are. None of my reciepts indicate wich rods are in it, and I've talked to the dealership aa few days ago and they said they would find out and let me know, but figured i'd ask you guys also since its taking them a while to get back to me. Would a replacement engine from Ford for a 99 come with the forged rods, or would all 7.3's now have PMR's?

typically all have pmr's now, but you could look in it, or check a number on the side as a definite, and a hole you can open and look into, but after a certain date they are pretty much all pmr
