difference between 5.2 and 5.9

i was wondering is there any way to tell the difference in a 5.2 and a 5.9. the reason i ask is i want to buy a short block 5.9 and im worried they might just be sending me a 5.2 block and id never know the difference. im considerding buying the short block to build on instead of rebuilding the 5.9 i have and then buying mods such as heads i think the short block would be cheaper. what do u think ?

here the link to the motor that i found

Well I know on the head of my 360 there is a sticker that says 5.9L.

I'm also wondering where this could be found on a short block.
