I bought what I was told was a 1997 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.7 vortec. The manifold doesn't look like that's what the engine is. How do I find out what kind of engine is in it
Give us a picture
Should have vortec wrote on intake some where. Vortec is also a plastic intake.
Vin number with a (W) is 4.3 v6. Vin number with a (M) 5.0 v8. Vin with a (R) is a 5.7 v8. That is if it still has original motor in it.
