is there a way to tell what year my engine is from by the s/n?
O im sorry i forgot to mention that what I posted before is about JDM B16A motors, the one that say B16A only, and not B16A2 or B16A3 which are the USDM versions, but the part about the year stamp on the head is still the same, but this only works for the head, since the head can be taken off easily it is possible for you to have an older/newer bottom end than the head, but if you know that they have not been seperated then u know the year the motor was made
Here are some pics of my JDM B16A 2nd Gen stamp the pic is bad so you cannot see it begins with the 5 on the serial number the other numbers u see stamped are the numbers that nippon motors stamped on it when i bought it from them
Here is the year stamp on my b16a head which shows its a 96
Here is the engine stamp from a 2000 Usdm Civic Si
ehh i guess html tags dont werk in here jus go to the gallery here
