Probably Romeo, but the easiest way to tell is to count the valve cover bolts. Windsors have 13 bolts on the drivers' side, and 14 bolts on the passenger side. Romeos have 11 bolts both sides. Windsors have 8 bolt cranks, Romeos have 6.

Very true!! the X in the vin on 99-02s i think distinguishes the GT from the Cobra 4.6 engine for those years?

- Also 99-00 GTs are Windsor eng. / 01-04s are Romeos and if your still not sure? then you can always do the valve cover method as mentioned before!
