    I wonder if it originally came with a 6, because the 350 sits so far back against the firewall. How could I find out? Doesn`t really matter,I am just curious.

    go to rayschevy.com and click on guides and then identification aids, and lastly VIN to learn how to decode it.

    i think the second character of your vin tells you the engine type. a KE would be a K=4x4, and an E=eightcyl. An 'S' would be a S=sixcly. but double check the vin decode

    Thanks everybody.I checked the vin and it came with an 8. It just looks odd with the motor so far back.
