    open the hood, and look at the block to the left of the exhaust manifold where the tranny connects, there is a badge spot there. that will tell you what the engine code is

    yea the engine code is stamped on the block, grease may be covering it....just wipe it off and read the code.

    I know on my Integra DC2 the DC2 is worked into the VIN.
    I do not know for sure but I would assume you could derive the engine from said number. Still looking on the block itself would be the best derivation of identity as a previous owner could have swaped around bits and parts. Not that Honda people have ever displayed a perpensity to do so...

    Yea it says D15B2 is this a halfway decent start? And what would be the stock HP on this?
    Blanco is your '90 a hatch? If so, do you know if a CRX rear bumper and cover will fit ours?

    Yeah I know that you can put the front bumper from a CRX on the hatch, it gets rid of that little filler piece between the hood and the bumper, but the back bumper is different. Oh also CRX dash fits in the hatch.
