Default D16y7 block cracked?

My name is Colin. I'm new to posting on here but I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere.

Working on rebuilding a D16y7 bottom end for boost. Took it all apart and as I am inspecting the block, I noticed what I believe is a hairline crack down the side of the crankcase. I would like to know if this is indeed a crack and will cause me issues, or if is there a proper way to fix it?

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks



I also noticed several other spots with these \"cracks". It almost looks like its part of the casting.

Appreciate the help guys! That is what I initially thought but just wanted to make double sure before I dump all this money on new parts for this thing. Thanks again!!

Also looking forward to posting more on this site.
