This is out of my car, the engine was built 12 days before the car was assembled. (4/11/12 vs 4/23/12)

I ask because it could be possible that they imported the powertrain as assembled from the U.S. just as they import the 2.0L EcoBoost from Spain, and the 1.6L EcoBoost From England.
My side sticker - sorry for blurry cam.

What does this tell you Suss?
