5.3 or 5.8 cant remeber

There is no 5.8, but there is a 4.8 and there is a 5.3. Just give me the 8th digit of the vin. If it's a V, it's a 4.8. If it's a T, it's a 5.3.
The fuel filter on the 5.3 is located under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line.
