    I'm pretty sure all b16's come with at least an a after the b16. the jdm ones are just b16a, that's it. If it is another market b16, such as EDM or USDM, it will have that code after it. Like the b16a2 is out of a USDM civic si, and I think the b16a3 is out of the del sol vtecs. I'm not sure if that's exactly right, but all b16 blocks I know of have b16a at least (or b16b, but that's a different matter).Hope that helps. FYI, no North American market integras came with b16's, they all came with b18a's, b's, c's, and an ocasional b17a in the 92-93 gsr.

    If you don't be knowing nothin, don't be startin nothing, in my opinion. I admire you efforts to learn about Hondas, but just remember your friend is a noob just like you. Why don't you take the weak side argument and just make him prove he's right? That will force him to learn crap by himself. Then maybe he'll turn out okay, and not act all ricer-fantastic.

    I have physically seen motors from over ten different countries markets, and have never seen a B16A without at least the A. Here in Europe they use numerical designations, like B16A1, B16A2, In Japan, the have B16A with no number at the end. I have seen companies that make (or rebuild) blocks, restamp then. seen P72 stamps where B18C should have been.

    But no, all Hondas from the factory have A or B at the end of B16, if they didn't, how would they know what goes where?

    So does this mean that the elusive B16A1 really exists?

    Yes, that was from a 88-91 CR-X. It was in Japan, not sure if it was in Europe as well.

    What's crazy about it? That the rest of the world outside Japan uses a system that lets you readily identify a motor and where it came from?
