    the 22 3/8" radiators came in the 88-91 Civic STD, 4-speed, D15B1 engine and the 88-91 CRX HF, D15B6 engine - the 26 1/4" radiator came in all the rest - maybe you aren't asking for the right one? - i checked Autozone and they list both radiators for the CRX and Civic - you can also use the wider radiator in your car by using the driver's side upper mounting bracket from any of the 88-91 Civic /CRXs that had the wider radiator - the bracket is triangular shaped like the one on the passenger side instead of rectangular like yours - the wider radiator and the triangular bracket will bolt right into your car

    the EG radiator won't fit in your car - it is too tall and hits the hood
