Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
Having the 1NDTV engine, do you need the engine serial number?
The VIN should be a 17 digit consisting of letters and numbers, should be located at the corner bottom of the front windshield, or at chassis pillar when you open the door. And on a sticker in engine bay, at the front, and near the firewall.
The engine serial number should be at the bellhousing (where the engine meets the transmission.
Kindly get back to me with the findings, so we proceed accordingly.
