Scott, you of all people should know this ;-)
But I'll humor you...& others.
Cast Aluminum intake, 3.6's are Black.
Engine color isn't as bright a Silver on the VC's &
T-belt covers as the 3.6's. The 4.2's are more opak,
Instead of the Intake air sensor being a solder on
connector, the 4.2's are plug on.
As Scott mentioned there is a bellows in the driver
side header on the 4.2's. & on the 3.6 it's smooth as
is the pass side. One exception though are the 5spd
cars. Everyone I've seen have had the bellows on the
driver side as the 4.2 headers do. & the intermitant
pipe is the same as the 4.2's, not an "X" pipe as the
Anyone else know of any visual differences? Those are
all I can think of rite now.
