uh well your car is considered an eg since thats its japanese chasis code. but the amreican civics are diff. for example, my civic is an EH3 which is a Si, and other 5th gen civic is classified as an EH2. I found this article on Honda Tuning. they got the other 2 parts in their tech section, so i hope that helps out. good luck with your swap! :tu2:

The basic chassis code is just two letters (such as "EG"). the number suffix next to it indicates the engine the car has, & also (sometimes) what body style too.

For example:
EG6 = DOHC VTEC SiR/SiR II hatchback
EG9 = DOHC VTEC SiR sedan

It changes with the EK:
EK4 = DOHC VTEC SiR/SiR II hatchback
EK4 = DOHC VTEC Si/Si II sedan

As you can see, they decided to retain the same number to indicate the engine for the EK series. Unlike with the EG6 & EG9, if only "EK4" is quoted, then you only know what engine the car has, as the body style is a mystery.

Hope that helps & doesn't confuse you further.
