Is there a way to indentify what engine came from which E series car?

Im lookin at buying a 4L engine and owner says he thinks its from an XR6

its obviously from an EF/EL, has an aftermarket plenum (rules out air intake type), extracters, T5...

only thing i can think of is ECU would have to be from a xr6 right? and are they well marked?

engine currently in an EA!

any help appreciated

if it is a tickford engine it will have tickford wings cast into the front of the head.

A Tickford cyl head has A big T cast on the front of the head. The rocker cover has the Ticky wings on it, and are red in colour.

the "T" on the front of the head is hard to fake.

if there isnt a "T", and theres something like 94da its not a tickford.

note: this is behind the plastic timing belt cover

Thanks for the help

i didnt check the head but the top of the rocker cover does have the FORD and 4.0 cast into the head with the long stripes down the cover.

Does this mean its just a standard EL?

ill check the head when i can

cheers

EF and EL rocker covers are rounded compared to the EA to ED and XG, XH ute rocker covers.
This is a plain 4.0 rocker cover painted red.

no....that rocker cover is actually from an EA - ED

EF ELs have a different rocker cover, they don't have the grooves and are more rounded. My Fairmont Ghia motor (also tickford) has a red rocker cover, though without the wings on it, but the head on the motor is a tickford. 94 - 95DT will mean it is a tickford motor out of an EF/EL as mooseman said. Just look for that. Rocker cover could have been changed cause previous owner liked the look.

phong =P~
