silvertop is 3 plug and the more powerful engine!

blacktop is single plug and the less powerful engine!

here you go mate its in the f.a.q's ive copy'd and pasted it for you.
http://www.saxperience.com/forum/showthread.php?t=87916

just match your engine bay to the photos.

some indicators are that the 98bhp vtr has :
- o2 sensor in top of the manifold
- the ecu on the left hand side has 3 plugs not 1
- the air filter box is square not round.

hope this has helped.
