Alusil or Nikasil???

Well, it's time to start asking questions about the next winter project...rebuild.

Is there any way to tell if I have Alusil or Nikasil cylinders while the engine is intact in the car? I hear it's a crapshoot on the 78 SC as to which I have.

If they're Nikasil, I'll likely keep them. If they're Alusil, I have to start looking around for some 3.2 P & C's. May as well upgrade if I have to spend the money.
