    I spun a rod bearing in a 00 Mustang GT and the insurance company sent a repacement used engine. the guy that is doing the work said the timing chain cover and belt set-up is different. how can i tell what model year car the replacement engine came from?

    Yes, you dont want a 98- 4.6 at all, if anything, try to get a newer used motor rather than a old one. Get a mustang head in your area to check it out.

    exactly, that's why i'm asking, i want to be sure it's a 99 or newer. it's supposed to be a 2000 or newer. i guess i should have been more specific and asked if anyone knows what the difference between the romeo and windsor engines are to see if that's why the belt setup is different.
