Honda Chassis Code Checklist

The definitive Honda chassis code list. Because your Civic is not an EG.

Aaron Bonk
Dec 27, 2013

Sometime during the late 1990s somebody thought it would be a good idea to start calling Hondas and Acuras not by their given names but by a series of letters and numbers associated with their 17-digit vehicle identification numbers. Since then, forenames like EF, EG, EK, DA, and DC have been given to all manner of Civics and Integras, but more often than not, because of a particular Honda's country of origin, engine type, and layout, chassis codes can vary significantly between two otherwise seemingly similar cars Which means that most of the time, you're doing it wrong. The following is a sampling of Honda's hundreds of chassis codes. All U.S.-based enthusiast models are represented as are each of their Japanese equivalents (where applicable). JDM models that do not have North American counterparts as well as hybrid and alternative-fuel vehicles with the exception of the CR-Z are not shown.

A note about Japanese model production years: You may be wondering why, for example, the Japanese version of the fifth-generation Civic (1992-1995 model) starts in 1991 or how they've gotten their hands on a 1992 CR-X. The answer is simple: Japan's automotive nomenclature is based off of a vehicle's precise initial and final sale dates. For example, like the United States, the fifth-generation Civic Hatchback was first sold in Japan in late 1991, but unlike the United States, the car is classified by the year in which it was first sold—1991.

At its most basic level, porting the intake and exhaust ports on a rotary engine is the same as porting the cylinder head(s) on a piston engine, in that the objective is to improve airflow in and out of the combustion chambers.
