Engine type identification dx, ex etc

Post by EDDIE-F » Mon Sep 30, 2019 9:31 pm

Hi All

I have a mk2 1989 1800 GT with a pierberg.

The block has rusted quite bad so i can only see the dots that would represent the corners of the letters E or D . based on six dots presumed its an EX.

Is the any other way of determining engine type ?

want to double check my timing but need to be sure of engine version.

Thanks

Ed
