03+ NVH BLock Identification

The NVH iron blocks have a taller ribbing. It's not a drastic deference, but you can definitely see a visual difference. It's a lot easier to tell the difference on the 4.6L aluminum blocks. On the aluminum NVH blocks the ribbing's are drastically different in height and thickness and they added a lot more ribs. On the 5.4 iron blocks the easiest place to see the difference in the ribbing is just above the oil pan rail by the starter and on the driver's side at the front of the motor above the oil pan rail. The ribs will be in an X shape in these locations. You can also look at the freeze/frost plug holes in the blocks. The NVH blocks have a beefier flange around the hole, and the metal has a more gradual slope as it fades into the side of the block, on the older blocks there is not as much of a rise were the freeze plug sets in the block and it just kind of rounds into the side of the block

Oh and it weighs like 50 more lbs than earlier castings like 205 compared to 177
