Help spotting a MFI engine

I am currently looking a purchasing a EA S-pack to work on as a weekend/fun car. I have NO experience when it comes to flacons but i've heard that a EA S-pack is quick.

After looking at some ads im getting a bit confused. Some say they have MFI while other have CFI. Do these cars have CPI or MFI or both? How do I spot the difference between the two?

2004 Ford Fiesta Zetec. Colorado Red . Mods - BMC air filter, Xenon Blue headlights, Slightly modded intake. 58.3 FWKW.

Re: Help spotting a MFI engine

MPI is multi point injection, one injector per cylinder opposed to cfi which is a single pair of injectors that supply all cylinders.. The CFI is easy to spot, it has a tennis racket sized air cleaner lid in the centre of the motor.. MPI runs an airbox at the passenger side front

Re: Help spotting a MFI engine

also CFI should have an unpainted rocker cover. MPFI had a dark blue one.

Re: Help spotting a MFI engine

AFAIK, MPi was optional on S packs, so some will be CFi and some MPI

that said, the engines themselfes are the same, they just have a different injection setup.

it costs between 300 and 500 for parts to convert to mpi,
i guess what im saying, is dont say no to an EA just because its CFi, it could be a really good, well looked after car.

Im looking for a EA S-pack manual. Unfortuantly it looks like i'll have to wait to late jan next year to get it though.
