    I have a 1988 CRX and when i bought it was told it was an HF, however i think some of the parts, brakes in particular, resemble that of the Dx. Does anyone know how to truely tell them apart? Would it be in the vin # somewhere? THANKS!

    Pop the hood and look, the DX is dual point fuel injection, and the HF is multi point fuel injection.

    If your car has a fuel rail with 4 injectors its an hf. Also if you floor it and it doesnt go anywhere its probably an hf as well.

    well, if you want to tell by the car then ....... hmm I know an hf has small splined halfshafts and hubs. If you take a normal dx halfshaft and its to big for you hub then it would be a hf. Prolly something else but I cant think of anything off the top of my head right now.

    The 4th, 5th, and 6th, numbers of your VIN are hte chassis code. Get those and then match them to a listing
    example
    EH2= 92-95 VX
    EG6= 92-95 SiR
    etc...

    in the back of your car, does it say HF or not? DX doesn't have a emblem, but the Si and HF do.

    You can tell by the brake rotors, the HF rotors are the same as the 84-87, and the DX and SI share the same rotors. Also, look on your rear lower control arm, and see if its stamped w/ HF.... If so, then its an HF!!!!!

    I you're constantly looking for DOWN HILL on-ramps and reject all others, it's an HF. If you feel that you've got 1st, 2nd, and then 3 5th gears, it's an HF. :p
