No it isn't. A Sport is a C18XEL, if it was an X18XE then it would have EGR and SAI.

But it doesn't, so it isn't.

The V stands for 'volume model' but no-one seems to be able to decide whether that means it was a high production engine (as it was used in so many cars) or whether it means increased capacity.

Increased capacity doesn't seem right to me, since the X20XEV appeared BEFORE the X18XE.

The manifolds are interchangeable, the dowpipes were the differemce.

Obviously the X18XE and X20XEV have the SAI ports drilled, the C18XE and C18XEL don't.
