If the stang has 2 exhaust exits its more than likely a v8 unless he decided to dual out v6 i dont know y you would want to but thats the easiest way to tell from a distance.

Exhaust can be deceiving, being that there are kits for dual exhuast for almost every vehicle ever made. How about looking at the engine to see if it's a v8 engine or not?

i had a v6, judging by the crank pulley its a v6. the crank pulley on a v8 is flat against the block.
