Default Figueing out what engine it is....

Ok, I am not the best at worken on stuff liek this i have done a bit but i love my honda's .... like u care... anyway. I just got a 92 honda civic DX. Well I have newer engine for it the one in is burning oil at 295k. well when i bought the car the guy said he had just pulled a engine out of a del sol and he would though it in. but as i was looken it up i found on oe site that there is a Del Sol Si and just a plan Del Sol at least thats what this site said. anyone and i am not sure whitch it is or even what year it is other then it has the same motor mounts. he also gave me the computer and tranny for it but I would like to know what it is but i am not sure how to do this... i have not done alot of engine work other then i fix every thing my self. so... if anyone could give me a tip or any info or maybe a link to somthing that would help me out... Also i was wondering this because i was thinking about trying to put A/C in every one keeps saying it's a big job and not worth it.. but i like my car and i would like to put it in... if possable... anyway.

Thanks


PS i am BRUTAL at spelling not my thing haha grammer too hehe so sorry for the kid quality msg.
