Hello all,
How can I tell for definite whether I have the X16SZR or later Z16SE engine? I understand the former was upto 2000, with the latter after that, but my car was registered in 2001 so it could have been made earlier, or they could have put some of the left over former ones in some of the 2000/2001 cars.

The easy way is X16SZR has a throttle cable,the Z16SE is fly by wire

I can't see a cable, but there might be one there. Also there's supposed to be a stamp on the engine block but I can't find it. So I've attached a pic:
