    ok i am thinking about buying a 90 civic dx h/b with a "swapped si motor" how do i tell if this guy really did put the si motor in? what are the cosmetic differences so i can make sure he is foir real. i think he swapped the same generation si motor in but i am not sure. the car came stock with a D15XX and the new motor should be a D15A6? thanks--david (new to the honda game)
