I got a motor, just the motor. no wiring. How can i tell what bore it has without taking the head off and actually measuring it. Are there any tags or markings to indicate whether it's a 1.6 or 1.8 on the Block itself? Not sure what wiring harness to use with this unknown motor. Any help would be great!

Thanks! - Kirk

I think there is a difference in intake manifolds. The CA18DE has the throttle-body positioned like this:



While the CA16DE is like this (GA16 pictured but you get the idea):

should have a a marking on the bell housing part of the engine.. should have CA16 or CA18.. then just look up engine specs that way IMO.

actually the ca16de has the same style intake as the ca18de. they have different intake piping but they both come out over the engine.

Isn't the bell housing on the transmission? I'll take a gander at it anyways as well as the intake manifold, They seem identical to me. a closer inspection maybe.. thanks for the help guys!

you should see a flat spot on the block right where the transmission would bolt up at. look to the right of the engine, just below the valve cover.
