    Well I see that but I still don't know how you can tell, the camera is at a bad angle, and you can only see 2 and a half cylinders.

    hang on it's #5. stupid me. the last piston in the picture doesn't have the V water jacket. so that's the last piston. the oil filter is on the driver's side.

    I have a complete 5.3l if you need it. It's out of a 04' with less then a 1000 miles on it.
