Mustang v6 but what engine? How to indentify?

Ok guys here's the run down
Bought a used 2000 V6 mustang which has had the engine changed,
The problem it has a vibration and I am aware the internal balance to external mid year 2000. But how can identify which 3.8 engine I have? How can I identify what year and what balance?

Previous owner said he reused crankshaft dampener and flex plate from original engine.
The current engine is thought to be from a 2000 mustang also but not sure what month nor balance? Help

Thanks in advance.

Loom at the intake manifold. If it's older 3.8 single port it will have the 3.8 on it. If it's the newer one it will be split port
