i'm pretty sure that si is actually sport intended, not sport injection. I could be wrong but i'm almost positive. I used to think it was sport injection but then someone told me different. Not sure.

Default Re: the meaning of Si? (Poidem)

I have an older issue of sport compact car which claims the initial designation was "sequential injection". This would make sense since the 86-87 civic standard and dx were carb'd and the Si was MPFI. Also the EF civics the standard and dx's were a dual port(like a throttle-body type) injection and the Si was individual injectors.

Before everyone starts hating and disagreeing, this is just what I read in a magazine and it seemed to make sense. I guess the best way would be to ask someone who works at corporate Honda.

so the 84-85 civic S would be a civic "sequential"? uh.. no.

i do believe the DX stands for deluxe. unlike the base civic which would be just the standard.

Uh...no. I've known that si meant "sport injection" since I got into hondas, but this thread got me doubting. So I did some research. You don't need some corporate homey, who doesn't even know that a Mugen Si has no more power than a regular one. Go to google and type in "si". You'll find your answer there.
