This is just slightly off-topic. My S14 engine block has the following on it:

23 4E A

According to the info that Ron posted, here's what it means:

6: S14
003: Serial Number
4: Munich
093: Production Day

23: 2.3 L
4E: 4-cyl fuel injected

Anyway, what does Production Day mean? Day of the year? It was built in 1987, which wasn't a leap year, so day 93 would have been April 4. That doesn't exactly match the rough production date of my car, gathered from the VIN. Hmm..
