Where did you get that number? Was it on the thermostat housing?

Welcome to GM Forum!

If I remember correctly, engine serial numbers are cast into the block itself. Some solid research may give you a close answer, but I'm not aware of any Web app that will take an engine serial and give you the car the factory dropped it in.

welcome to the site, theres likely numbers on the block that at least should tell you what year it was made and then if that matches maybe go further.
