On the front of yor engine there is a "device" that has your sparkplug wires running into it, if its a Circle you have a Distributor, if its rectangular you have DIS.

Jemplayer's has a Distributor on his 96' previously It was though/common Knowledge that 96-97's all had DIS. SO I started this poll to see if there are any other 96-97's with a Distributor so we can change what we know:D

I think I need to get Ford to replace my engine due to that fact that it dosen't have DIS and it should. Yea I think something along the split port variety would be about right. :D
