Default Engine Serial Number

Do Insights have matching engine and chassis serial numbers? Where is the engine serial number? Just curious. Many cars do have matching numbers.

(Did my search. Didn't find anything)

OK - Where would I find the # for the engine. Couldn't find a ref in the manual or online.

Vertical portion of the engine block, passenger side, rear or back side of the engine, above the oil pressure sensor for the Vtec I believe.

The VIN tag on the chassis (panels, dash, firewall, etc), engine, and Transmission all match.

The Engine ID and Transmission ID are unique and independent of the VIN #, are not sequential, and have no discernible pattern other than the first digit of the engine ID designates the Year the engine was made (cyl heads used to have this as well, not sure if they still do).
