    Hey

    I have a 90 civic hatch when i brought it (couple years ago), i was told it was a 'Si' model.
    But now after researching i'm not sure what model it really is.
    It has

    1.6 liter engine (block says D16A6)
    4 speed transmission
    Dual Point fuel Injection.
    It has a Si badge at the back (but anyone could of put that on)

    Could anyone tell me what model it really is?

    thanks

    sounds like it may be STD model - what is the VIN number?

    D16A6 is the Si block, but Si models were MPFI and all had 5 speed transmission and factory sunroof

    does it have a rear wiper?
    does it have a console or just a boot?
    does it have a factory tach?
    does it have a red plastic panel between the tail lights or a plain black piece?

    a dead giveaway is the sunroof. If it doesn't have a sunroof, it isn't an Si.


    Sounds like someone threw an Si block into a STD hatch.

    If you don't like the 4 speed tranny, I'll trade you a 91 DX 5spd for it straight up :)

    Because of the lack of the accessories you mention, the black piece between the taillights, drum brakes, DPFI, and four speed transmission, it sounds like you have a STD model. Someone apparently swapped in an SI longblock, slapped on an SI badge, and kept the four speed transmission and DPFI.

    SIs are overrated, in my opinion. Honda added TONS of extra stuff you don't need, which added LOTS of weight. But they gave it a drivetrain with just enough power and shorter gearing to make it slightly faster than a DX. DX with swap > SI (with or without swap) ANY DAY!

    The STD is ALWAYS the lightest Civic of a GIVEN year. Although, because later models had door mounted seatbelts, a 1991 STD is going to be heavier than a 1988 DX.
