    I bought this motor from a guy who said it was out of a JDM civic its a 1.6 sohc vtec. The block is stamped D16A. Is this a factory setup or did someone swap the head? I thought it would be stamped D16Z6. And would this be obd0 or obd1? Any help on this.

    The motor could be any number of motors. Look on the head for a vtec solenoid, and on the front side above the exhaust ports for the date (it will be the leftmost in a series of numbers).

    I guess my point is he advertised it as a 92-95 sohc vtec and it has D16A on the block and vtec on the valve cover. It does have a vtec solenoid on it. It should be marked D16Z6 to be a sohc vtec. Maybe he didnt know what he was selling but I will find out whats up!

    a lot of JDM engine codes are like that - D16A, D15B, etc. - the JDM D16A is identical to the USDM D16Z6 - there is no JDM D16Z6 - the D16A is a SOHC VTEC engine OBD1 - about 130hp - another JDM engine that is identical to the D16Z6 is SOHC ZC VTEC

    Yes, JDM motors don't have the numerical designator at the end of the code.
