    Question head for a 1.6 16v

    i am after a head for my astra but i have no idea what type of engine i have
    my car is a '99 1.6 16v sxi it also has a cable to the throttle body plus one of the long rounded plugs instead of the square one.
    can anyone give me a push in the right direction?
    i've tried to look on the block but i need to do some serious stripping if i am to get to the engine no.
    then i've phoned around but i can't seem to find 1600 heads that's ok
    everybody wants to sell me a complete engine
    any help will be greatly appreciated.
