If it's the factory engine, it'll be a D16Z6. If you're looking for a used engine, try craigslist; you should be able to pick one up for around $300.

Sounds like you are looking at the transmission and not the engine.

The engine code should start with a D15 or D16. My guess is a D16z6.

Should the timing belt cover not also have a sticker with the engine code (assuming the sticker is intact)?

All right, check the location in MBrent's picture. Chances are the trans. ID is stamped on the bell housing right next to the engine ID; look to the immediate right of where you saw "S20..."; S20 is the transmission ID.
