    If it's a true Type-R the block will be stamped with B18c5 (USDM) or B18c (JDM). But you could have easily found this out had you first googled it or done some searching.

    look at the casting in the head, right above the exhaust ports.. if it says pr3 then its a type r head.. it it says p72, its a GSR

    That's not a 100% way to identify them as the B16A also has PR3 stamps, but that's because the head is basically the same, which would also explain the years being different, the bare head was probably produced earlier than the car.

    without ripping open the motor and checking everything its as close as he's gonna get to knowing.. unless he wants to take off teh exhaust manifold and look for the factory port job

    You'd be looking for soemthing that you probably wouldn't be able to see anyway, a light factory polish. I wouldn't worry about it.

    but a b16a isnt stamped on a b18c :D
    unless the previous owner took a jdm gsr and put a b16 head on, this is a real type r


    and b16a and b18c-r ARE THE SAME head, but the type r comes with a factory port on the intake side. internals are different, like dual valve springs in a type r, and different cams.

    there is a factory port and polish on the exhaust and a porting job on the intake side of the head
