How to identify engine

10-05-2007, 06:48 PM
i have a friend with a 94 acura integra but he doesn't know which model. He's thinking it's the GS-R, but I don't know how to tell the difference other than I would assume VTEC to be written somewhere if it was. Is there some easy way to figure out which one it is? Thanks!

look at the engine code? or look for the Vtec solenoid

While standing in front of vehicle with hood open. look towards left side of
engine block. If it is a gsr it will have a stamp with b18c1 in engine block.
also look to see if there is a emblem on the right rear below trunk, if it is
a gsr it will have a silver emblem with dohc vtec. last look at the instrument
cluster and see what the redline is. gsr's have a redline of 8k rpms.
