Usually on the front and/or rear surface of the engine there is a small tag that will have three letters on it. One of the letters will be an M or a K. M's are the 275 HP LD8 engine and K's are the 300 HP L37 engine. If the tags are missing then get the VIN off the side of the block (at the lower right hand corner of the block there is a rectanglar part of the casting for the VIN stamp) and look for the Y (275 HP) or 9 (300 HP).
