Where is serial # for my '04, 6.0l engine

I tried to use the "Search" funtion on the website but can't find where to look for the Engine serial number on my 6.0L. Thanks & good day.

Engine Serial #

So you had to remove your FICM to read it? Thanks, Rick

I think you can see it by just moving the degass a little out of the way. It's been a while though so I'm not 100%. Why do you need that number? I only needed it once when a dearlership arts guy couldn't figure out his *** from a hole in the wall. I ended up figuring it out here on the forums.

I'll go look at mine real quick for ya.

OK it's ona sticker on the FICM under the degass, I can almost read mine but to really see it I would have to move the degass or get a small mirror. Mines an early 2004 so it has the late 203 motor.

I wanted to know the Serial # to tell what year engine is. Sometimes when I read the 6.0 L bible from this website they may say, a
part has been used or only used on engines before or after a certain date. I thought that would help me when I want to order an egr delete kit etc & they ask me about the date or build etc. Thanks, Rick

The easiest way to tell on an 04 is to look at the passenger side valve cover. If there is a sensor (ICP) in the top front end of the valve cover it's an 04 and has a square EGR cooler. If not it's an 03 with a round EGR cooler and the ICP is under the turbo.

Ah I see, I think the est way to tell what you really have is to look at the EGR cooler like ncparts said and see if it's round or square. Round is early '04 build and square is after 9/30/2003-ish.

Thanks, now I remember about the '04 with the square egr cooler. Thanks a lot. I try to do all the PM's that I'm suppose to do. It's paid for & the paint looks new. I want to do egr delete so I don't have crap going back into engine. Thats why I'm doing CCV with Racor 4500. Bye
