    ok guys so i have a question about my 91 hatch that i bought. how can i tell wether it is an SI or not? it used to have the badge on the back, but other than that, how can i tell? (the badge had been pulled off by the origional owner) the guy i bought it from thought it was an Si, but i cant find anything around or on the inside that would lead me to believe it was special, so how can i tell? thanks

    If it's an Si, it should also have MPFI instead of DPFI if I am not mistaken...

    canda=d16a6...it will have si interior and an si cluster...also check the vin..

    The first character represents the country of manufacture, and can be a letter or a number, each signifying a different country. The most common ones are as follows:
    (1 = USA, 2 = Canada, 3 = Mexico, J = Japan, K = Korea, W = Germany, Y = Finland, Sweden)
    So using the Auto VIN Decoder in the above example, this particular car was made in Canada.
    The second/third characters represent the manufacturer, also known as the make. The most common are:
    (A = Alfa Romeo, B = Dodge, C = Chrysler, D = Daihatsu, E = Eagle, F= Ford/Eagle, G = All General Motors vehicles (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn) H = Honda/Acura, J= Jeep, L = Lincoln, M = Mitsubishi, N = Nissan/Infiniti, P = Plymouth, S = Subaru, T = Toyota/Lexus, V = Volkswagen)
    So using the Auto VIN Decoder in the above example, this car is a Ford or an Eagle..since Eagle is no longer made, it is most likely a Ford.
    Other popular makes use a 3-character initial sequence:
    (TRU/WAU = Audi, 4US/WBA/WBS = BMW, 2HM/KMH = Hyundai, SAJ = Jaguar, SAL = Land Rover, 1YV/JM1 = Mazda, WDB = Mercedes-Benz, VF3 = Peugeot, WP0 = Porsche, YK1/YS3 = Saab, YV1=Volvo)
    The fourth character is the type of restraint system.
    In the above example, "R" represents hydraulic breaks using the VIN Decoder.
    The fifth, sixth & seventh characters are the vehicle line, series and body style. This will obviously be different across makes and models.
    In the above example, characters 5, 6 & 7 are X18: X18 is a Ford F150 Pickup 4WD Super Cab
    The eighth character is the engine type.
    With the Auto VIN Decoder, W represents a 4.6 liter V-8 engine.
    The tenth character represents the year of the car. Pay close attention to this one:
    B = 1981 F = 1985 K = 1989 P = 1993 V = 1997 1 = 2001
    C = 1982 G = 1986 L = 1990 R = 1994 W = 1998 2 = 2002
    D = 1983 H = 1987 M = 1991 S = 1995 X = 1999 3 = 2003
    E = 1984 J = 1988 N = 1992 T = 1996 Y = 2000 4 = 2004
    For the most recent used model year, 5 = 2005
    In the above example, the "X" indicates that this car was made in 1999.
    The eleventh character indicates the assembly plant.
    In the above example, the C indicates Ontario, Canada
    Characters 12-17 represent the vehicle's unique fingerprint. It is these six digits which make every single vehicle in the world different.
    So using the Auto VIN Decoder one last time, the Vehicle Identification Number: 2FTRX18W1XCA01212 represents a 1999 Ford F150 Pickup 4WD Super Cab manufactured in Ontario, Canada with hydraulic brakes and a 4.6-liter V-8 engine.
    So there you have it, the Auto VIN Decoder.
