Well if its not a terminator (03-04) im assuming somebody just bought an aluminum block and built it.outstanding,that pretty much answers my question. It is all aftermarket. I forgot what block but diamond pistons manley rods and kellog crank.. Im getting it for almost as much as a used terminator shortblock. The shop go to will know whats up,but I was just trying to forecast a little. I appreciate your help fellas!
You can also do a quick check with a magnet. Iron block is magnetic, aluminum is not.Well if its not a terminator (03-04) im assuming somebody just bought an aluminum block and built it.
Pics would help, u can usually tell if a block is iron (general rule of thumb) by black/rust color in valley/exterior, and aluminum by greyish/aluminum color lol. You can diffrentiate between the aluminum blocks (teksid, WAP,and aluminator) by the webbing in the valley. Now ofcoarse any block can be painted but examining the webbing will help alot more.
