1997 Other Saturn Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

Hi.
I'm doing a ring & rod bearing replacement w a new head on my 1.9 DOHC 4 cylinder saturn and I don't remember which way the pistons went in. There is no front mark on the pistons like most GM engines that I have rebuilt. The pistons have two relief cut out for valve clearance. Are the relief cut out for the exhaust valves or the intake valves. Thanks Larry
