    need help decoding a 6.0 ls style engine

    Hello everyone, I just got an iron block alu. head 6.0l engine given to me with out an intake manifold or accesories. I have drove myself crazy searching for some kind of decoder for this engine or any info as to exactly what it is and what it came out of. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be hugely appreciated.

    Thanks

    Do you have any casting numbers? The block could be an lq9 or lq4.

    I might be mistaken but I believe on most gen III/IV gm engines, the engine block's casting number is on the top rear edge of the block.
