    4.5 or 4.9 Engine

    Hi! I have a crate motor that is either a 4.5 or a 4.9, how can I tell which one it is? Is there a certain set of numbers I should be looking for? Thanks for any help.

    He posted an identical thread the same day and i answered him. Its a 4.9 in the pic. The 4.5 pfi has a different pcv line and a round coil cover not to mention a ridiculous mess of piping for the Air Injection Reaction system which was deleted in 1991 and later.
