Default Identifying EJ22 Engine

I have a question and cannot seem to find an answer on any forum (NASIOC, FastWRX, Scoobymods). I bought an 02 WRX last year and was made aware that the engine was swapped out by a previous owner. I discovered later that the clutch was slipping and a bearing in the tranny was bad so this month I finally started on that project. Upon removing the transmission I discovered missing bolt holes, then found out there was an EJ22 engine block in my car. Short of removing the engine is there anyway to tell if the engine is closed deck? Or if the previous owner was just cutting corners.

Thanks

The bulge on the bellhousing for the starter......

Smooth = open deck

Ridges = closed deck

Seach for "closed deck hatching" or "closed deck grid" for pictures.

The stock block might have had a failure, and he decided to throw in an EJ22 for more power.

The motor is open-deck, as is the EJ205, so not really a problem. Replacing a blown EJ205 for an EJ22 is a good move, IMHO.
