    ok, i just bought my first car which is a 93 civic hatchback, so i am just starting to read about all the different stuff you can do to them, because i am new to all this alot of the terminology confuses the crap out of me, so i want to know once and for all what year civics are what generations?

    ps. if your bored and want to explain any other terminology, go right ahead

    88-91 civic is the 4th gen (chassis code EF)

    92-95 civic is the 5th gen (chassis code EG)

    96-00 (01?) civic is the 6th gen (chassis code EK)

    Then generations are not only just body/chassis style, also, ever gen had a diffrent type of On Board Dieignostics (sp)

    4thgen -OBD0
    5th gen - OBD1
    6th gen -OBD2

    There were two styles of obd2, 96-97 was a diffrent plug style (or something small like that) than 98+

    There's a good 200 different chassis codes. By the way did you guys know that the USDM 92-95 HB is actually an EH? Only the JDM 92-95 HB is EG6. I still call them all EG6's but, just wondered if you guys knew that.

    The 92-95 EH is the four door and the 94-95 coupe is EJ1/2.And the EG is more than the EG6 in Japan and here in Germany it spans EG3/4/5/6/8/9 depending on trim level.47 chassis codes for civics since 84.

    My 200 estimate is actually closer to 60. It looked a lot bigger when I saw my list.
    EH2- USDM 3-Door CX/DX/VX
    EH3- USDM 3-Door Si
    EH6- USDM Del Sol Si (SOHC)
    EH9- USDM 4-Door EX
    EJ1- USDM 2-Door EX
    EJ2- USDM All 2-Door EX
