1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Limited Magnum V8

Hey guys i'm just wondering how i can tell if my jeep is either a 5.2 L or 5.9 L Magnum engine. Knowing the exact horsepower is pretty important to me.

Thanks

If its original, the grill is different, the hood has vents, it'll say 5.9 on the tailgate.

Unless it's badged as a "5.9 Limited", and has hood vents, different rims and a grille that sticks out, as well as a 3" stainless tip on the exhaust, it's a 5.2 unless the engine was swapped. The stock 5.9s also have a leather center console lid, armrest in the rear seat, leather door panels, and leather shifters/ebrake.
