    I keep seeing an engine referred to as this on another site. My understanding is JDM engines do not have a number after the engine name such as the b16a2, b18c1, etc.

    But yet people will still call it an a4 instead of the b16a SiR II.

    Is this a 'non' name for it or are they just misinformed?

    Yeah I know, but that doesn't prove anything since B's engine list lacks that engine code.

    I'm asking anyone who has an SiR II does it say b16a4 on the block itself? Anyone have any solid concrete proof?

    I've seen them go up to a5 or a6 I think but no it's not stamped on the head, just a variant so people kinda have an idea of what gen the engine is from

    I had a JDM SiR 2 and mine was stamped B16a. Like B said, it's probably EDM or maybe ADM (australian :))

    Ok... a lot of these people don't have locations so they could be in Europe or Aussie land. I'll have to see if they're talking about JDM engines though.
