Engine ID Help Please ..... 1988 5.8

just picked up a 351w that only has a few thousand miles on it but has been sitting around for a while. Tying to figure out exactally what this thing came out of?
A friend told me it may be out of a 1988 bronco or crown victoria? so im posting it here to see if any of you can varify.

Block Casting: E4AE-6015-FA4 ..... date code 8C10.. (1988 March 10th)
Heads (351w cast iron) ..... date codes 8C16 .... (1988 March 16th)
Intake D9DE-9425-CB .... aluminum 2v ....
NON serpentine, rear sump oil pan
also has double roller timing chain

I do know its a 351W (5.8) and judging by the casting date codes, built for a 1988 production year car or truck ,
but looking for more info; specs car or truck it was made for etc....
never appears to be apart, took the pan and valve covers off to inspect.

any accurate info is greatly appreciated

Re: Engine ID Help Please ..... 1988 5.8

Got this off the internet where somebody somewhere was asking the same question:

E = Decade (1980s)
4 = Year (1984)
A = Original Model Line (Generic Ford/Galaxie)
E = Engineering Department (Engine)
6015 = Basic Part Number (Engine block)
FA = Change Level
