Default Location of vin number on Rsx type-s engine/tranny k20a2

Does anybody know the location of the vin number on a Rsx type-s engine/tranny (k20a2)? Purchased one recently and wanted to double check. Thanks

I know that. It's funny how they don't mention that in the manual.
Also, there are two pictures. One showing VIN locations and the other showing engine/tranny serial #s.

And to top it off, the car has little VIN stickers all over it.

I see where your coming from.
Seems he would have been better off
checking he serial numbers on the engine
and tranny then comparing them with the
car's VIN. That plate on the bottom looks like
anyone could have put it on there.
