want are some key signs to make sure that all the parts or for that kind of motor?

well the motor would be a B16 gen 2 for a 99 civic.

so what can i look for to make sure that everything is right.

maybe some close up pics might help me out.

the main things would be the numbers on the block, need pics?
what about the intake manifold? oh ya on the inside of the motor.

i know i might be a little worried but i dont want to spend money and not get qualty stuff.

peace

Look on the block, it should be USDM and say B16A2, that is the only Civic Si motor made from 99-00. It should say it on the left of the exhaust manifold...Just look for B16A2 on it somwhere.

No,no,no all 2nd gen + (92-00) B16's have grey plugs,and valve covers are not reliable.Here is a link to idetify B16's.
