    Isn't it the Z16XE? I could be wrong mate. Only throwing in my guess as an hour has passed since you posted.

    on a 02 it SHOULD be a Z16XE unless it has been changed at some point. If you have a cat in your exhasut manifold its the Z16XE, if there isnt one its the X16XEL but its very unlikley it would be the X16XEL
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
