any Ford engine experts out there?

Simple question! The 1.25l engine in the Fiesta comes in two versions, one is rated at 60PS, the other is 82PS. How can you tell which one is which?
Physical appearance, engine number, VIN number - or what?

If you're going Ford-ing, TalkFord is a useful forum.

According to them, 95-02 Fiesta (Mark 4 and 5) 02-08 Fiesta (Mark 6) 1.25's were all 75bhp.

The latest models 07 on (Mark 7) did have two 1.25 variants as you said.
TalkFord's buying guide doesn't differentiate.

They do an online VIN decoder which may tell you more.
There is a diagram of the car data plate (not just the VIN number) which shows the engine type to be noted on the left of the plate, second box down - but what code refers to which engine, they don't say!!

If I recall correctly the 8th digit in the vin designates the engine platform in that vehicle.
PE exhaust, tints...more to come

Pretty sure the engine internals are the same and the power differences are in the throttle body ECU. So if you're looking for a replacement engine, you might have a better chance if you swap the old externals from your engine?
