When you've wrenched on just about everything in the automotive world, you tend to identify certain traits that certain companies do that is specific to them. So you can look at an engine, removed from whatever it was in, even with any identification removed, and you can tell whose it is. They all do things a wee bit differently. And there are transitional changes as well as continental changes. A European Ford has some differences than a domestic one within a certain time frame. Same for GM stuff. And despite Nissan being owned by Renault for some time, they still continue to do things that are still distinctly Japanese Nissan.
