Alright, I have 3.9L 5 on the front.. the 5 might be something else, doesn't quite look like a 5

02 91 JB on the side just above front exhaust port

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way

There are small differences between the heads from the EA-EF. The EF onward has a chamber set up for better high rev performance/flow. The Valves are all the same, however, there are some port differences in the heads. For best performance, the head needs to be matched to your compression ratio, and the type of manifold you have.

would the 91AB head have been fitted stock?

my car was labelled special edition...and had a body kit fitted...i was told the kit came from when the car was bought new

what makes the 91AB and 91AA heads so good?

91AB is just a part number. EA started with 87DA and went upwards from there The EF head I have is 94DA

The part number you describe is only useful to engineers.
91 represents the year the block was cast. The AA, AB etc is only a reference and Ford apparently do not use this as a reference at all
