You would have to get some casting numbers off the block. Tags in the valve covers are just identifiers for the part. I doubt that if it was a true police crown vic that it would have been replaced with a crate moter, as police departments tend to have rather good mait, and use oem stuff.

Only way to know for sure what the engine is , is to look on the back of the engine someplace for the casiting number.

It was as helpful as it could be , considering the ops question.

How do you identify an engine from a few number under the valve cover?

Do you have some helpful insight, or a problem of you own in identifying an engine.

Bottom line is , as I stated in my earlier post, You NEED casting numbers on the block it self.
