    It should be X16SZR

    Have a look on the end of the block where it meets the bell housing (just to the right of the exhaust manifold) - the engine code is stamped on the rib

    Defo X16SZR - as for HGF - unless u have most if not all of the associated symptoms then it probably aint the HG.
    These engines are particularly bad for condensation in the head due to badly designed crankcase breathers etc.

    Ive just had total HGF on mine (same year/model) but a lot of the signs associated with a blown HG can in most cases just be attributed to condensation and short journeys etc.

    What leads u to think its HGF?
