I am pretty sure it can only be seen with a mirror. I have not actually seen it but I remember when we were confirming a block number it was in the front of the engine I think stamped on the block itself. Probably behind the exhaust manifold.

If you have one of those bendy mirrors from a auto shop, you should be able to locate it. I would say it is similar to any v6 front wheel drive. Everything is easier from underneath
