What is in my doghouse? (Help please)

So I have a 1989 Econoline that I got off eBay and the original motor is not in it. I was told it was swapped out for 2005 F-350 engine with only 30,000 miles on it. I have the number from the sticker on the engine but I'm not finding any results on line as to what exactly my horsepower is. It's got a Canadian tag on it, assembly I'm assuming, so this American machine isn't exactly whistling the Star Spangled Banner rolling down the road.

Any help, links, phone numbers, to get me in the right direction are appreciated.

This is the number on the sticker on the engine.
5 8 L. +10
W1 9/1/93

Thanks in advance.

No real idea, but I'm guessing based on the "5 8 L" that it's a 5.8 liter aka 351 Windsor. Ain't out of a 2005 Ford. I think they stopped making them sometime in the mid 90s.

Edit: Now I see the date in your post.. 93 makes sense. As does this motor, as your 89 could have had one originally.

Thank you for the response.
I don't get it, all I'm seeing for the 351 Windsor is 210 horsepower? Just doesn't seem right, 210 seems real weak.

Don't worry about the HP. A 6.0L PSD only had 235 HP in a van.
A 5.8L gas engine does fine in a van.
