1998 E450 E99??

I am going to purchase a 1998 E450 tomorrow and have become entirely confused about this 1998 situation. I have always known about the lapse for the 1998 model year and PSD sales. However, folks have suggested that the truck might have an E99? Or is it more likely that the truck will have a leftover 97 engine? Whats the deal? the more I google, the deeper my confusion. The only response I have gotten was a link to the E99 section of this forum which I have scoured and it only contains info about actual 1999 models and nothing concerning a 1998 E450 having an e99 engine.

simplest way to tell will be fuel pump. electric it is an E99 mechanical it is 94.5-97. what was the manufacture date?

my guess it it is an E99 without an IC since it is a van

good luck

The lack of '98 model year is only true for the trucks... as to which style motor it has I do not know... but since the truck were redesigned for release in '98, titled as a '99, my guess is they changed the motor style across the board. In short, a '98 van and early '99 truck should be similar, as they would have been produced at the same time. However the vans did have a slightly de-tuned non-intercooled motor as compaired to the intercooled trucks, true for all years as far as I know. Check the van forum for details.
