How do I positively identify a swapped in 4 cyl motor that is in the 2000 nissan frontier that I just bought?

It was being sold as having 164K on the odometer, but with a newer 4cyl engine with only 75K from a 2005 Xterra. I took the guys word for it, and I still believe him at this point, but it needs a tune up and I want to positively identify the engine.

These are the stock specs on my truck:

2000 NISSAN FRONTIER XE
CLUB CAB PICKUP
2.4L I4 FI DOHC
REAR WHEEL DRIVE

It looks just like this one:



After buying the truck, we hit walmart for plugs and oil, filters, etc. The machine that u enter ur cars info into only showed a 6cyl motor for a 2005 Xterra, so I called the guy back and he said maybe it was a 2004 motor that was put in?

So, I'm going to go look at my motor in a bit, but I was hoping u guys could help me figure out what I have. I imagine there is an engine code stamped into the block?

If it helps, here is a pic of the engine that I took the other day when first checking out the truck:



I'll probly be posting more pics soon.

Thx
