    sorry if this is in the wrong forum


    but how can you tell the difference between EJ and EK?

    UKDM (96-00) - 1.4 SOHC Hatchback, 1.6 SOHC and 1.6 SOHC VTEC coupes are EJ


    1.5 SOHC VTEC-E, 1.6 DOHC VTEC (hatch and saloon), 1.6 Type-R are EK


    and to confuse matters the 1.6 DOHC VTEC Coupe is an EM


    it doesnt make that much of a difference, just the chassis code


    why do you need to know and someone will be able to help you better

    its known as an EJ9....but 6th gens are commonly referred to as EKs


    i always thought it was to do with the flagship model being an EK(9) same with the EP(3) even though you got EM and ES 7th gens they are still commonly known as EPS....if you get what i mean
