actually its a civic ek9 type r. there's no civic si in japan. just the civic type r. and ull find it in japan or if some one imports on to the usa or makes a us ek look lke on. it has the b18 c-r in it which is the same motor in the integra type r, red seats and carpet and some other shit, way to much to type. and it has 5 lugs instead of four. but the one in the pic looks kinda like a clone or a fake type r. it has a diffrent front bumper on it wit the type r lip. un less this is an old one


few false info. if that is the real deal then it is indeed a 97-98 ek9 civic type r which of course is JDM. the civic type r does not have a b18c r spec. it has the b16b which pushes out 185hp at 8200 rpm. that is IF it's the real deal.


oh yeah. im pretty sure that is the real deal. lots of hints in the picture.


true. it has the b16b ctr. but most of the type r ive seen had a diffrent front bumper on em.but i thinks it the 2000 front bumper. but i think its the real thing


ek's received a face lift in 99 featuring a different front end. but up there is pre 99. personally i like the old front ends but, a lot of people are converting their front ends to 99-00's.


those r the ones ive seen. i kinda like the facelift. yea it probly is the real deal
