Hello, There should be a serial number right on the motor. The location of these numbers would depend on the year of the motor. Do you have any idea when it was from? CarGrrl

I really dont have any idea. it has the huge 5.0 HO intake plenum on it, if that helps.

Hello, This engine fit Mustangs from 1986-1992. However, I have not been able to find much information at all on how to find the number. You could try calling a Ford dealer or an auto parts location and seeing if they know a little better. By the way, this link does not mention where to find the ID numbers, but there is some good information about what I believe is your engine or similar: http://members.tripod.com/torquespecs/mustang_capri_1979-93_v8.htm Best of luck! Sorry I couldn't help more with this one. CarGrrl
