    Does anyone know if you can tell if an engine came from japan by the engine code..
    For Example H22a instead of H22a1 which is on most domestic engines
    ...b16a instead of b16a1

    JDM doesnt have numbers listed. It would say H22A and nothing else if it was from Japan.

    i thougn the "b16a1" didnt have a final numerical designation, that that was just when they came with the b16a2. I see it posted alot on here (b16a1 i mean) and i understand the purpose of doing so but was that really how its marked?

    Isn't it if it ends with a number it's usdm, and if it ends in a letter it's jdm?
