Is there any way to tell the difference between a 3.9L and 4L six cylinder Motors
Without pulling them apart.
All so is the ea mpfi fuel injector system same as a ed one
As my ea one seems identical to my next door neighbors ed.
Thank in advance with any help on these questions.

Re: Falcon six

Not necessarily. The 4.0 motor was released with the EB II. EA and EB I Falcons were offered with MPEFI 3.9 motors from the start. Therefore there are plenty of MPEFI 3.9 motors around.

Also, the 3.9MPEFI motor put out 139kw while the early 4.0MPEFI motors put out 147kw.

As far as I know, the MPEFI system on them is the same EEC-IV system. Although there are probably minor calibration differences between them.
