Default Honda Nomials.

Honda has given us the TypeS's, the TypeR's, the SH's Si's..etc. now.. my question (albeit a potentially embarrassing one) is: What do all these letters mean? I know that they are factory performance distinctions..but if there's any significance to them, i wanna know what it is. i'm mostly curious about the prelude's: SH, SS, Si and TypeS (not to be confused with S.)

I read somewhere that SI stands for "Sport inspired", i think it was in an old car and driver.

Thats the only one i know...

my fav SI lines:

Sunroof Included

Slow Import

Stupid Investment

Small Inside

but seriously isn't it either sport, or sequential Injection (although seq. would seem wrong since it is really bank to bank right?)

I agree with all of them except the part about small inside. My EX has twice the room inside as an eclipse.
