The engine number should be embossed on the engine block - there is edge of the engine block next to the oil filter to the right of it or next to your dipstick tube also..Where the gearbox meets the'll see the edge of the engine block and the number is ***** to it.. But as far as your Registration indicates you have ( Z18XE ) Engine Code...I do hope this helps
