    So are you asking how to tell if you really have a B16A? If that's the case, look at the block on front next to the transmission, there is a small square with B16A and then the serial number under it.

    the color of the plugs... whitish OBD-0 roundish (distributor at least). greyish and square (distributor side) OBD-1. I believe.... someone confirm this.

    THere are a series of numbers on the head on the leftish side under the heatshield...

    looks like this...

    The number on the left is the date the head was cast, not nescessarily when it was installed by Honda, as mine came from a 93 civic VTi.

    Also the plugs are milky white on the first gens, and the serial number starts with 1.

    1st gen should use a cable tranny - and check the plug color.

    I believe a PR3 is an OBD1 ecu, or at least they make an OBD1 PR3 ECU, and I believe it came with the 92-93 XSI. Also SIRIIs came with hydro transmissions, did you put a cable one on? Are you using the HASport kit for a hydro tranny in an EF?
