Re: identifying 3.3

the 3.3 engine number prefix is E or G. the 4.1 had J, L, D, N or F as it's prefix.

there's a start.

hope that helps

Re: identifying 3.3

it could be a 4.1 but with the stocky single barrle carb witch was on the 3.3 as well if so pitch it over your head and get a twin barrle and the mannifold for it from a xd and you will be surprized with the differance
