There are some glaring errors regarding the B20A5 and B21A1 engines listed in the "Engine ID" guide. They list the B20A5 as a SOHC with "limited parts availability" and the B21A1 is listed as a SOHC 2.3 liter with 'moderately available parts.'
Problem is both the B20A5 and B21A1 are both DOHC engines (B20A3 is SOHC) and furthermore the B21A1 is 2.1 liters not 2.3. And beyond that, these two engines have the same basic structure/architecture with the only main differences being larger cylinder bore and different cylinder wall material in the B21A1. The vast majority of the parts between these engines can be interchanged, but based on this book you would think it's not true when you look at their asterisk star rating differences.
I know I'm nitpicking this one single issue which is admittedly a small detail in a larger book, but if it's any indication of the quality of the information in this book then reader beware.
