What I said earlier is for the 243s. Its possible that the 799s are different. I just went and checked mine right after my first post

Is it a sticker or pin stamp or something. Does anyone have a picture?

EDIT: Nevermind I have 243's on both sides. It's cast into the head.

one of each

I have a 07. It has a build date of 10/06. It has a #799 on drivers side and a #243 on pasenger side. I think that may be the oposite of CodyC6? Does seem very odd! I have a hard time believing that they could mix up a set of heads and not cause idle or other problems that would be noticable. Although I'll be talking to my dealership on monday!

I found this info.

"If you have been watching my listings over the past month you have noticed that I am quickly becoming "the" source for clean 6.0L parts such as heads blocks and cranks, please check my previous listings and keep track of what I have coming up soon. Coming in soon are more 6.0L parts as well as other Gen III engines. Let me know what your looking for.

You are bidding on a core set of GM Gen III aluminum heads. Casting number 799 (same as 243), small chamber, Less than 10K Miles. H214 and B175 casting, 2005 model, excellent condition! Please check with your dealer to be sure this is the exact one for your application. May fit other applications, my description is only a guide and I cannot guarantee it is 100% correct, just what I found. Sold as-is!"

Found this doing a search on the heads. Also seen this same think on the vette site.
What do you all think of this info? Crap or truth???

The vette sites seem to believe is "much to do about nothing." Older castings that have been machined to newer specs. Pre production LS6 heads(799) machined to L33 specs (243) Casting #'s are just that... casting numbers. Not the specs the heads have been machined to. I think that there may be some bar codes on the heads that would tell the truth of there actual finished specs. I'm going to get my first oil change next week, (I've got 800 miles right now) and I'll grill the service adviser! Not that he'll know what I'm talking about!!!
Like I said earlier. The fact that two differant heads could be on the motor is crazy!
