Re: Vulcan or Duratec?

I believe, and I'm no expert, that the vulcan has 12 valves -- I know that my '99 Duratec has 24 valves and DOHC. Does this help?

Re: Vulcan or Duratec?

The Vulcan is 12v overhead valve push rod motor, with 155hp in it's latest model.
The Duratec is a 24v dual overhead cam motor, with 200hp and in the latest model it has a Variable Intake Manifold. Giving it great off the line pickup. The GL standard and only package of that year was the Vulcan. The easyist way to tell is the Duratec say Duratec 24v right on the intake manifold. Hope that helps. Spitzer
