    Yep, those were the premium Accord models from 86-89. I don't think there's ever been an Si Accord in the US. I know there's an SiR in Japan, but hell, to my knowledge, they never did just an Si overseas either...

    I found what the oil problem was, i changed the oil and oil filter but there wasn't enough oil pressure. The oil filter was leaking coz of its seal around it.

    Honda put out a 3g Si... overseas. It did indeed have a B20 engine. He's from NZ, so it adds up properly.

    Does the oil light blink or just stay on? If you fixed the oil level to full is the light off? It could be the oil pump going out if the light stays on. I thought the tag came off of the Prelude but he is in New Zealand. I used to see EX badges on LX/DX models all the times at auctions I would go to buy cars at. Those damn tricky dealers!
