    Try the title. Mine is an HF and it has a 1.5L 4cycl that has D15B6 on the block. of course my transmission is out of a different crx and I believe it came out of an SI. So I have an HF with an SI transmission.

    Assuming this is a 90 or 91 CRX you're talking about using the Vin Number
    position 456, Model
    ED8 = 1.5L ,
    ED9 = 1.6L

    Position 8 , Grade/Trim
    5 = CRX DX
    6 = CRX HF/ Si , if it's a 6 and has a moonroof it's an Si

    Position 10 Model Year
    J = 88
    K = 89
    L = 90
    M = 91

    from the Honda Engine List reference material here at hondaswap:
    D16A6 = CRX Si
    D15B6 = CRX HF
    D15B2 = CRX DX

    Hope this helps a little

    Damn i learned something. Well mine checks out to be what I thought besides the tranny. my Vin # is JHM(ED8=1.5L)3(6=HF/SI)1(L=1990)S00XXXX. No moon roof (I wish).

    Easy, pop the hood:
    DPFI= DX
    Spark plugs closer to the exhaust manifold= HF
    Spark plugs closer to the intake manifold= Si

    * or right after the exhaust manifold is the catalitic converter= HF

    * not to mention the difference in the size of the intake manifold. On the HF manifold my pe[bleep]is wouldnt fit in it.

    the HF lacks a moonroof and rear wiper. Those are all swap options - On the chassis the real difference is the rear axle. the HF is a smaller axle (Lighter weight)
