Is my engine a Remeo or Windsor!?

Ok guys I'm stumped and have read all sorts of stuff on other forms and google.

I have a 2000 GT but replaced the motor but need to find the year so I order the correct Hydraulic tensioner.

I believe it have 11 bolts but cannot get far enough back to see if there are any bolts behind the valve cover.
The oil fill is on the pass side
I have pink injectors (the same ones that came in the engine)

These numbers came off a white sticker on the valve cover.

He said the motor was replaced and doesn't know which one it was replaced with.

Lol. Googled those numbers and this thread was the first one to show up.

You need to find the serial number. The Romeo will have XW7E in it and the Windsor will have F75E.

My money is on it being a Romeo...
