Difference in 3.2L vs 3.5L Type S engine

Hi guys,

I just purchased a 2007 Acura TL Type-S and I think I may have gotten hosed on the engine.

I have serious concern that I have a 3.2L engine in the car and I wanted to know if there is a way to verify the 3.5L vs the 3.2L

In a somewhat quick internet search I had a hard time finding where the VIN plate would be on the engine, or even where the J35A8 engine code would be stamped.

Any help would be great because I have yet to sign any loan papers and I do not want to get myself in anymore of a sticky situation.

Generally the VIN number would be located near the oil pan.
