    wow, umm, welcome to the site.

    Are you able to take some pics and post here. You will need to use something like Photobucket in order to post.

    Here's the answer to what's photobucket if you do not already know.

    Based on what you describe it sounds like you may have a LQ4 or LQ9 iron block, which are 6.0 liter motors. Both are very common when ppl are wanting to replace their LS1.
