Anybody know the difference in these two motors? I've seen in several Ford parts manuals that distinguishes between a 4.6 triton and 4.6 windsor. I didn't know there was different 4.6's, but evidently there is. So how do you tell the difference? HELP!!!

ALL are tritons. there is a romeo version
and a windsor version. romeo, mich. plant and windsor, can.. 8th num in vin is
a W then you have a romeo version. , if it
is a "6" then windsor. The triton is the
only v8 gas engine in the new ford trucks to my knowledge.
Also there are differences in the Romeo and the Windsor engines and I think that's what you may be coming across in the Ford parts manual. Some parts that fit one, will not fit the other. They really are made differently. Do a search here on Romeo vs Windsor. A while back I had asked about adding performance parts to these two engines and if output was then different on each one. Lots of info here, just search.
