First gen b16a id 88-91 non-obd (sir)
158hp 111lbs of tq and 10.2:1 compression, cable driven tranny
second gen b16a (sir2) is 92-
168hp and 113lbs of tq 10.4:1 compression.used in 92-00 civic's obd1 and 2. both hydrolic trannys....

then there is usdm b16a3 160hp 111 lbs of tq and 10.2:1 compression. found in obd1 del sol vtec.
and also a b16a2 which comes in the 99-00 civic si, same exact engine as the b16a3 except the a2 is obd2.....usdm only.

usdm and jdm b16a sir2,a2, and a3 are all the same except for compression.The sir is a little different (all interchangeable) and the auto b16a (comes equiped with an auto tranny) has different cams.

do you have a cable or hydro tranny, if its hydro then you have a SIR2, since you have a 6th gen you needed a hydro tranny so if you had to convert it to a hydro from cable then its an SIR1, another way to tell is your ECU if you had to change the wiring harness to a OBD1 then you have an SIR1 otherwise its 2
