what kinda question is that?

If you have a 04 you have a SOHC the ohv was discontinued before then. Not sure on the exact year. Ohv has the camshaft in the center of the block with pushrods to open the valves, as opposed the the SOHC that has a cam in each head to operate the valves.

OHV was discontinued after 2000. 2001+ had received SOHC. The OHV also only created 185 horses (give or take) while the new one creates 207.
