Engines

Hi all, I own 11/94 Fairmont Ghia. My question is, how do I know if I have the standard engine or the high performance engine in my car? It has the normal grey rocker cover, yet I have read that the Ghia's have the High Output engine. I have noticed Xr6 have the red rocker?? Anybody know??

If it's a series II, then it will have one. Look on the vehicle ID plate in the engine bay to see if it's a S2.

OR....... Does your car lay 2 wheelers when you do a burnout?? Or does it just spin one wheel for about a kilometre?? Ghia's with XR6 motors also have LSD's.
