    Hey guys, I got my motor but its questionable weather its a JDM or USDM. I order a 96' JDM GSR from Hmotoronline.com but Steve gave me the wrong tracking number and when I finally recieved my motor and the reciept, the tracking number on the reciept is different. So, it seems questionable if this company is legit and what i order is what i get. so if you know how to tell a JDM from a USDM please give me your knowlege. thank you.

    If the stamp on the block says B18C, then it's JDM.

    If the stamp on the block says B18C1, then it's USDM.

    If your block says P72, you'll be installing an ECU in your engine bay. :lol:

    P72 is the ECU code I think. Let me know if I'm mistaken. But on the engine block itself, if should have a stamp that says, B18C or B18C1. The stamp is located to the right of the tranny and under the valve cover area.

    Good luck on the swap, are you doing it yourself? If you thought the ECU was the motor then you might be in trouble. JK, good luck man and have fun.
