 I see what you mean....day 38. Do you have a picture by chance of the engine pad? Also, check the block cast date. It should be before the engine assembly date on the pad.

That's a known stamping error. What's the VIN?

I have 4 V0838DZ engines in my db. Best guess, it was supposed to be V0831DZ, a Saturday. V0828DZ is known.
