    talking about a b18a?

    90-91 same motor. 92-93 have better flowing manifolds (or something like that to get an extra 10hp).

    you can allways get the serial number and go to acura and they can tell you.

    On the head, on the left there is a series of numbers, the one on the very left is the date. If it says 90, it's a 90. Haynes, Chiltons, even Helms use pictures as a generalization, not always a specific year.

    the dates on the engines are when they were produced - since new models (like 91) were generally released late in the year before (late 90) then it would not be uncommon to have an engine dated 90 in a 91 model car
