    Is the Hellcat engine stamped to show it is a 2015 and assigned to the particular VIN, like corvettes are. For example if you have a 2015 Hellcat and the engine needs replaced within the same year, could a good tech tell this wasn't the original engine the car was born with.
    Replacing of radiators, superchargers, starters, etc. are they are dated within the same time roughly the car was made. Or dated 2015.

    Thanks

    All vehicles will have a partial or complete VIN affixed to major components, as well as certain body panels and other assemblies. (anti-theft) Yes, if you have your engine replaced under warranty, or out of pocket, the engine may or may not be correctly date-coded for when your car was manufactured, but the original engine should have the VIN, or a significant portion of it stamped into the side of the block. I will have to check if the VIN is also on the transmission as it was in the earlier years.

    DShatzer,

    Thanks for the input. I was wondering if the supercharger has any matching VIN numbers on it also?
