    the sensor on top of the intake manifold is seen in this pic, near the center. Only 96+ have those.

    On a 1996+ B18B, the valve cover is flat over the cams (as you have seen). On 1994-1995 motors, the areas over the cams are kind of stepped, with higher areas alternating with lower areas. ZC motors have a similar type of valve cover.

    On the 96+ motors have the PCValve on the valve cover(the hose that goes to the mainfold) the 95 and below doesnt have the PCValve on top of the valve cover it is located on the intake manifold.
