    Exactly like the title says. i always see these but i'm not sure what they are. I've probably seen them a million times but i don't know which is which. Sme pics would be nice, just to clarify

    ef = 88-91
    eg = 92-95
    ek = 96-00

    its just a generalizeation, as for the most part, those are JDM chassis codes.

    well, they are. but again, its a generalization

    EG2 = del sol VTEC
    EG6 = JDM civic VTI
    EH6 = Civic hatch
    EH2 = del sol Si

    and all those fit into EG's. so like i said, its a generalization.
    its all in the vin. read your vin. its like the 3rd charcter in...

    JMEH6............. blah

    hey this is off topic but why don't people actually import whole cars over here from Japan, does it cost way too much or what. that would be tight to have a right hand drive crx or hatch or sumthin

    three letters----------DOT

    all the glass has to be switched over, tires, bumpers, lights, probably a million things that i dont know about. and to get it registered it would be like a stack of papers taller than i am you would have to fill out. I've heard of places that will do it for you though, if you have the $$$.

    Actually there are a couple Hondas already on the EPA's list of importable cars. Mostly the DX models, so that saves you about $2500 in emissions testing fees and the 3-5 month wait, but DOT still gonna tap that ass.
