The engine number is located on the rear of the block, just below the cylinder head, on the drivers side. There are two sets of numbers. The first set is the engine number. The second set nearby is the last 8 digits of your VIN.

The first character in the engine number is the last digit of the model year

The second character in the engine number represents the manufacturing plant.
S = Saltillo
T = Trenton

Positions 8, 9, 10, 11, are the month/day

I just found this when googling for something else.
I guess the OP didn't really want to know.
