    depends on what hood it is exactly. because i believe the ef8 and the ef9 hoods are different and i know one of the 2 is for a ZC which uses the stock headlights and fits perfect on our cars. on the other hand, the other hood does require you to get the whole front end, and if i'm not mistaken, you'll need the radiator support too. the ZC hood has the "bump" on top to clear the cam gears, if it's the hood for the B16 CRX's, you'll need more than just the hood so everything lines up perfect. hope this helps.

    BTW-i'm about 45min from bakersfield, i'm in Lancaster/Palmdale

    i emailed password jdm about this. they said and i quote 'the hood will work fine on a usdm crx, there are no differences. i can get it in white for $189 + $150 shipping."

    so, i'm not sure if this will answer your questions. moreover are you using the ZC hood or the SiR hood?

    the EF SiR hoods do NOT bolt on our cars...


    Rad support is different and it will not line up/latch correctly
