Engine Identification

I have a 2006 Cayman S with 21K miles on the clock. With reference to the IMS bearing,I understand that some early production cars were produced with earlier build M97 engines that were fitted with the small OD IMS bearing rather than the large OD bearing which is much less prone to failure.

Question: Can earlier build M97 engines with the small bearing be identified by engine serial number or vehicle VIN number ??

If so, where is the serial number located?

Thanks,

Dennis
