Just look at the 8th digit of the VIN. This tells engine size. A dealer or auto parts store can tell you what this digit decodes to.

there should be a sticker under the hood (originally) that has the engine size on it. it would also probably have the spark plug gap on it and the year information. and would have the size in liters --5.0 or 5.8L. my truck also has the engine size stamped onto the intake manifold.

hopefully no one has swapped the egine .. but if you look, there should be an engine ID Label on the right side valve cover ..
