2.5 L staring back at me. i found this between cylinders 2 and 3. if this is correct, the guy that changed the engine in my car gave me the engine out of a taurus. any fellow ford experts able to confirm my findings?

btw, tempo'* came with 2.3 liters, and the 1st gen base model taurus came with a 2.5 liter stroked tempo engine. set up to get more torque for the tarus

Recent swap, or there when you got it?

well, the guy had this engine laying around from his topaz <so he says> and i opted for this over the head gasket job.

this would explain the behavior of the car <butt loads of torque, awesome midrange, but dry top end>. i need to find a vin on the engine, just to be sure though.
