should be an identification thing right on the block near the exhaust manifold its almost square may have some grime on it that would make it hard to see what it says you may have to do alittle searching for what i am talking about but you should be able to see it since it almost sticks out like a sore thumb if you find a golden brass color looking code number thing your close if that helps before you take a pic of it

lol, that's a swapped engine. It's a DOHC VTEC (as you can read)

REPLACE THAT FILTER!!!!

You have a nice supercharger. Jackson Racing is a great company!

In your facebook in the picture before the last one you'll see a spot where the engine code is supposed to be. Pop the hood and look at it.

honestly, i dont see it on the block. He took a clear pic of where it was supposed to be, and well...its not there. I know it should be etched into it, but it looks like it was actually sanded down. I dont know maybe its just me missing somthing, but im interested to see if anyone else can find it.

The guy who did have it seems to be an idiot judging by all the retarded stuff around the engine bay. That is 80% likely to be a B16a2. B16a2's are the most common swap for an EG hatch. Not only that, supercharged b16's are very common also. You are probably putting down around 170-180 whp.
