Eg That is the vin code Honda guys seem to use them for generation Ids. Ef eg ek. I bought it with a check engine light on it needs an 02 $200 so. I have both 02 codes forget what they are but that's the problem with mine. Not entirely sure why they only put that motor in the hatches in us. Canada only got them in 92 euro and other markets got them in other cars. Possibly because of sales # they were $ and gas was cheap. Would you spend 3000$ more in 92 for 6-8 mpg?
