The 2.0 Si is an A20 (BT), and the 1.8 Dx is an A18 (ET).
You can find the engine code stamped to the block under the timing inspection hole. Probably have to clean it real well before you can read it though, haha.
From what I've heard, the 2.0 has ~110hp, while the 1.8 only has ~100hp.

haha, brought it back to life i guess.

In the link that you posted I think that they're either talking about the third gen lude, (started in 1987 in japan) or maybe they're talking about the b20 that they put in the JDM 2g ludes. I say this because they say that it's got a dual cam engine while ours are SOHC.

If you go further down the page to the "Like This" link, there are '85 prelude specs that sound better, even though it says that they are b20 specs....

And yeah its the A20A3 like you said. Theres a dude on preludepower with an H22 in his 2g, just badass. Gotta have either ****loads of money or some awesome fab skills, haha.

haha agreed well i checked out my Vin just out of Curiosity and well i found out i have a 2.0L L4 DOHC 16V i don't know how i could have a 16 valve when it clearly says 12 valve on the fuel injection lid haha but yea also manufactured in Japan and well then again all Ludes are made there Xcept for some Versions haha other than that that's all i found so i guess i do have only 110 hp :/ oh well gnna have to do some major modding to bring up the hp now haha and yea that guys has to have some major skills/$$
