most of the engine codes are unique, USDM/EDM motors, since they have the numerical suffix (F22a6 etc..)

JDM Motors dont have these suffixes (as far as the H,K and F-series are concerned)

the suffixes denote a variant within the engine family itself, which might have a different state of tune.

for instance, the JDM F20B motor could either be the SOHC non-VTEC F20B in the CD4, the SOHC VTEC in the CF4/CF5, the DOHC VTEC 180PS SiR, or DOHC VTEC 200PS SiR-T.

the same applies for the H22a. JDM H22as were fitted in the Accord and prelude, with 3 state of tune, 190PS, 200PS and 220PS, but all three are H22A.

For the USDM market, the CB7 had 3 different F22a motors, the base F22a1, F22a4 and F22a6, all three having different power ratings by the use of different cams, different ECU, different headers. But they were differentiated by the -a1, -a4 and -a6 suffix.

Europe also had a few H22as, namely the H22A7 in the Accord type R.

Thx for the info bien. Do you have any info for Fit/Jazz engine? i think they start with 'L' series but dunno wat the output is.

I thought id some more info i found.

Honda straight-4 engines

The number in the engine code gives the approximate displacement of the engine. e.g. B18A would have an approximate displacement of 1.8L, H22A1 would have an approximate displacement of 2.2L.

The letters/colours at the end of the line represent the market where the car was sold:

You're welcome.

I'm not too sure about the L-series.. need to go and pop the bonnet of the City, but it's raining LOL. L15A2 i think for the I-DSi, not sure if the VTEC shares the same code as well.

As for the F-series, here's a quick list of the JDM/USD/EDM engines. (I get confused with the USDM/EDM numerical suffix)

OBD-I
F18A SOHC PGM-Carb - 105PS @ somewhere around 6000rpm (tak ingat), 143Nm
F20A SOHC PGM-Carb - 110PS, 160-ish Nm
F20A SOHC PGM-Fi - 133PS, 180-ish Nm
F20A DOHC PGM-Fi - 150PS, 187 Nm
F22A SOHC PGM-Fi (JDM) - 140PS, 193Nm
F22A1 (USDM) - 125hp, 180-ish Nm
F22A4 (USDM) - 130hp, 193Nm
F22A6 (USDM) - 140hp, 193Nm
F22A7 (EDM, Aus) - 140/150hp, 200Nm (reference needed)
F18B SOHC - 125PS, 165Nm
F20B SOHC - 135PS, 181Nm
F22B SOHC VTEC - 145PS, 200Nm

OBD-II
F18B SOHC VTEC (JDM/EDM) - 140PS, 165Nm
F20B SOHC VTEC (JDM/EDM) - 150PS, 186Nm
F20B DOHC VTEC (JDM) - 180PS, 186Nm (SiR)
- 200PS, 200Nm (SiR-T)
F23A SOHC VTEC (JDM) - 150PS, 206Nm
F23A1 (USDM)

F23A5 (USDM) - 135hp, 206Nm

I'll continue with the H-series when I get back home

Why does my engine reads ME516 ? Chasis code starts with EH5. It's a 1995 civic eg 3 door.
Been trying to look for details about this engine but no luck.

it's a localised D16.

malaysian assembled Hondas (during kah motor era) had their motors start with M. ME, MA etc..

Bien335,
Interesting! Perhaps you can continue on the H-series. I'm wondering which H22A is for CL1. H22A7??

CL1 has the H22a.

JDM engines dont have the numerical suffix; eg: H22a4, H22a7. just H22a for all three variants, the 190PS in the CD6/8/CF2. 200PS in the BB6/8 and 220PS in the CL1/BB6-S

H22a
