    to distinguish the difference of figuring out if you have a first gen or second gen involves looking at the valve cover, specifically at the DOHC and VTEC words.

    For the 160ps version B16A, the DOHC word will be larger than the VTEC word while the reverse holds true for the 170ps version B16A. Other helpful identifications includes looking for a 'PGM-Fi' plate on top of the intake manifold. The 160ps B16A will have the PGM-Fi plate while the 170ps B16A will not.

    However, TOVA cautions that this is a quick and general guide and will not be fool-proof. There have been cases reported of half-cuts with a B16A with 170ps type valve cover but on an EF8 CRX SiR body (which is not supposed to have received this engine at all). Some says that the last few production EF8s uses the 170ps engine while others feels that perhaps the new valve cover designs were used to save production costs. Similarly, some DA6/DA8 Integras may be running around with the 170ps B16A internals but with the older 160ps valve cover designs.
