How To Identify LS Engines

If you have access to the VIN number of the vehicle the engine belongs to, the 8th digit along with the year of the vehicle can confirm which engine you have. If you do not have access to the VIN number, you will need to narrow down the answer based on external LS engine parts:

  • Timing Cover: if the cover is plain, the engine is GEN III. If it has a sensor(s) on it, it is GEN IV.
  • Cylinder Heads: confirm if the cylinder heads are cast iron or aluminum by checking with a magnet as it will stick to cast iron and not aluminum.
  • Engine block: confirm the block is either cast iron or aluminum with a magnet as it will not stick to aluminum but will stick to cast iron.
  • Markings on engine block: check on the engine block below the cylinder head at the front or back for casting numbers which may include the engine size in liters.
  • Markings on cylinder heads: confirm the casting number on a cylinder head to confirm which engines it was designed to fit.
  • Throttle Body Control: If the throttle body is controlled by a cable, it is a GEN III, if it is drive-by-wire, it could be GEN III or GEN IV.
  • Intake Manifold: If the manifold has ribbing on the top and is rectangular and boxy in shape, the intake is from a truck. If the manifold is low with smooth rounded runners and no ribbing, it is from a car.
  • 4.8L and 5.3L pistons: use a borescope to confirm if the pistons are flat top (on 4.8 liter engines) or dished (5.3 engines).
  • Oil Pan: most truck oil pans have a deeper sump than car oil pans.
  • Reluctor wheel for crankshaft sensor (located inside the block at the rear of the crankshaft; sensor located near starter): GEN III have 24 teeth with a visible exterior black crankshaft sensor connector, while GEN IV have 58 teeth with a visible exterior grey crankshaft sensor connector
