Like was stated earlier, if you have a bunch of small letters, and not a 53,54,55, you have a Mexican block. My 01 has the Mex block... They are actually the strongest blocks made thus far. The Mexico plant used about 1/3 MORE iron in casting than even the 55 block because of a shortage of the cheap metals used in the other blocks. They're bulletproof. Even if you have a 53 don't worry. Only 1% of them actually crack. My buddies puller has a 53 and it's got 850hp, hasn't cracked yet even after 7 seasons of pulling and 350,000 on the odometer. Usually if it passes 150,000 miles without cracking, it's not going to crack.
