ED = 88-91 civic/crx north america models..
EE = 88-91 civic/crx european models..

And yeah they're just chassis codes..And some of the others you posted are trim levels and models..Like crv is a model of a honda..And lx,si,ex is the trim of the model,,,etc

I recently replaced my USDM D16 in my Si with a JDM ZC, so does this mean i have added horsepower? I see what the chart says, but I just wanted to check and see. Thanks.
