    Little bit confused.... Bought what I thought was Del sol b16 block however when I looked closer, the part code on the bottow of the block, pistons, and caps, is Pr-3 which tells me that its from an older crx. Whats confusing me though is the block badge says "B16A2". My first thought was that the guy just etched it in but its too perfect for that to have happened. Anyone know if the PR3 part code is used anywhere else?

    PR3 is the ECU code for the OBD0 VTEC. But it also appeared on my B18A1 cam gears. If you engine code says B16A2 then it is.

    Right but if the pistons and everything else including a part on the bottow of the block is stamped PR-3 doesnt that mean something?

    Thats what i'm thinking because there isnt another a2 that i can think of. Just confuses me that the internals are pr3s instead of p2t. Oh well lol.

    All JDM motors have no numbers after. Your B16 if its obd1 or obd2 will be a b16a2 in the USA or UK. If its obd0 meaning its from a 90 or 91 crx then its a b16A1.

    Hope that helps.
