    ok. friend has THIS engine in his car. HE CLAIMS it is a B16 from japan.
    with ctr manifold and ctr headers.

    do the b16's from japan come with red valve cover?

    i think this is a ctr engine...

    anybody?

    and no, im too busy to go down to the shop and look at it in person.......

    you would have to see the block stamp to know if it is a CTR, B16B, and yes, those came with red valve covers, but not the reg. B16A

    it has milky white connectors, so it is a obd0 distributor... so if thats how it came from japan, than no, it is not a b16b as they are obd2 engines.

    Aside from the connectors as zex mentioned,there is the fact that the type R's had a polished oil hule cap,so it is a CTR cover on a B16A.
