I doubt Ford would have made a mistake with the engine numbering. VicRoads have no record of the number according to their website. Did you get the engine from a wrecking yard or private sale? I'm thinking someone renumbered the engine and scrapped the the 4.0L block.

A guy at work bought some metal stamps to renumber his crate engine instead of having to go to VicRoads. His old block will have the numbers ground off and sent off for scrap metal.

im guessing that number is from the vin/ compliance plate?
if that's the number on the block then its suss.. engine has been re stamped..
the engine numbers don't have the 6fpaaa prefix, it should start with jgsw.

even if that is the vin, seeing as tho fords are matching numbers, the fact etis came up with a 6 cylinder is sus enough. unless etis is wrong

Sounds like a base model 6 that has had a 5.0 conversion done.
If it is an ex promo car it could very well be the case.

The Engine number itself is on the block, above the starter motor. See if you find something there?

I often mark it with Chalk to assist with reading, and then take a photo
