Thanks so much for the vin decode....i printed that off for my own reference now!

Secondly, i think it is a type II as well, look at the air intake, it has that bracket, not really a bracket but a lil air stack near the inlet on the motor side, the type1's didnt have that

this is a nationwide insurance auction that i buy cars from for my salvage and the car is hit pretty good on the driver side, they take better pics of the engine but this one they didnt do such a good job

although an automatic and i want 6spd...im not gonna get picky on that cuz they are rare to find!

The 93 coupes came stock with type IIs. The badge is near the front of the manifold, and the photo looks like it has one.
Good call...forgot about all '93 coupes having Type II....I stand corrected!

Good luck with the motor purchase HvND

Great! This one is gonna be auctioned off next week! current bid is $25, it will go relatively cheap cuz a title wont be issued for it, instead a letter of destruction which means they cant put this car back out on the streets in a safe manner! TYPE II HERE I COME!!! haha
