    Default JDM vs USDM Honda CRV Differences

    As per the title, does anyone know the differences between the 1997-2001 JDM and USDM Honda CRV models if any? Obviously other than the steering wheel being on the other side.

    Thx

    Mostly all cosmetic changes for the JDM models. It is still the same engine 95-98 is low compression 99 and up is high compression b20.

    Fullmark model has no spare tire on the back and most fullmark come with lip kit

    Some other models have the rare swivel passenger seat, navigation, rain visors, rear mirror, larger rear wing, front mirror on hood, push bars etc.. They have a lot cooler stuff then here

    How about the transmissions and gear ratio, are they the same as USDM? I know for Toyota sometimes JDM vs USDM the ratios are different.

    As far as I know they are the same. I have been looking into importing one as well and I didn't see anything about transmission changes.

    K cool man, I'm mostly concerned that USDM parts will strap right in. They're good vehicles though, would be a sweet buy.

    I think engine and transmissions are both same.
