Is there any difference(s) (motor/tranny) between the '96 and '97?
I have both and stock they are near identical but horse power is a tad higher on the 97. That said it means nothing as there are chips and after market air filters and exhaust system that wake these mild manner engines up

As I remember, there ARE some internal differences in the engine block, the webbing is different and such. There was an explanation on somebody's site, I think it was Masami's? But I don't think it's anything significant.
The '97's were 225 hp, older was 215. But, if an older one ever went in the shop after '97, it probably got reprogrammed to the '97 spec, which may or may not have bumped the horsepower.
