Whoever did this, put a hood sticker from a 2000 which says the engine
is 4.7L. This was enough to fool the smog tech as I passed the smog
test here in California. The test was performed as if the truck was a
2000 4.7L rather than a 5.2L 1998.
I found out about this not being a 2000 when I was involved in an
accident. Repair parts were ordered based on the VIN and nothing
fit. After trial and error and looking in catalogs, the shop
determined (the front-end anyway) was a '98.
