You cant tell between the bore of the motor. Thats interal you can see it. The only give away is the US spec has one throttle boby where the EURO's have 6 individual ones
There are 3.0L and 3.2L US spec motors and 3.0L and 3.2L EURO motors
The U.S. spec 3.0 makes 225hp and the US spec 3.2 makes 240hp depending on the year
the EUROS are total different ball game. They have individual throttle bodies (6) and the 3.0L EURO makes 286hp and the 3.2L EURO makes 321hp. Hope this helps
Jazz it is the 3.2L
P.S. below is a pic of a EURO motor. If the motor dosent look like this then its not EURO
