In 2002, the Civic Si received a complete redesign and returned to form as a hatchback. The body shape of this model was based on the "New Bullet-Form" concept, which aimed to create a more dynamic look and provide greater stability while traveling on highways or winding country roads. The interior layout also distinguished itself from other Civic Si generations with a dash-mounted shifter. Unlike other iterations of the Civic Si, the fifth generation was not produced in Canada or the United States, and it does not share a body style or interior with the USDM Civic (offered only in sedan and coupé forms) sold there. Instead, the 2002-05 Civic Si is manufactured in Swindon, England, and exported to Canada and the United States. The EP hatchback is also used for the second generation Civic Type R which was sold in Europe and Japan.
Shifting away from the B-series engine, the seventh generation Civic Si adopted the K-series K20A3 engine used in the Acura RSX base model rated at 160 bhp (120 kW) at 6500 rpm and 132 lbf·ft (179 N·m) at 5000 rpm. With a redline of 6,800 rpm, the Si distanced itself from the narrow, high-rpm powerband engine of its predecessor, and as a result saw a 20 percent increase in torque. Performance was relatively underwhelming compared to the competition; the switch to MacPherson struts from double-wishbone suspension resulted in less responsive handling, and a near-150 lb (68 kg) increase in weight to 2,744 lb (1,245 kg) contributed to slower acceleration than the lighter '99-'00 Si. Much of the weight gain is attributed to the chassis' stouter structure when compared to the previous generation hatchback, with the '02 Si boasting an increase in torsional rigidity by 95 percent and a bending rigidity increase of 22 percent.
With the increased chassis rigidity compensating for weight gain, the 5th-generation Civic Si saw roughly the same performance numbers as the previous generation Si, with 7.6 seconds to 60 mph and 15.5 seconds at the quarter mile. Other factors adversely impacting performance included the lack of an LSD (limited slip differential) and having to shift into third gear to get to 60. First gear ends at about 30, second ends at 55, and third ends at 82 mph (132 km/h).
The 2004--05 models received minor revisions. Cosmetic changes included revised headlight (dual bulb setup) and taillight designs, standard side skirts, and an option for a HFP. The suspension was updated with a change from 4 lug to 5 lug bolt pattern, a larger rear sway bar, and a change from 15-inch wheels (195/60-15) to 16-inch wheels (205/55-16). The interior received more silver accents in place of the chrome ones (the lock switch).
The Honda chassis code for the Si and Type-R models is EP3. In Canada it was referred to as the Honda Civic SiR, and was discontinued in 2005.[

2001 Honda Civic Type-R Review - With Richard Hammond
Richard Hammond reviews an unusually large hot-hatch - the 2001 Honda Civic
Type-R, to see if the size effects it's performance and handling, or if it
has more than enough grunt to match up with the best of them. Plus he
checks out the practicality aspect of it, and how it is to drive on a daily
basis in terms of comfort.
2005 Honda Civic Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
As a economical and simple daily driver, the 2005 Honda Civic represents
one of the best choices in the used car market and will probably make a
wonderful car for a first-time driver. We'd recommend looking for an EX
model and sticking with the 5-speed manual but those of you who are lucky
enough to find one with such a low mileage should be quite pleased with the

Honda EP3 TypeR Civic Rebuild
This EP3 Civic rolled down a bank during a rally in Upper Hutt, New
Zealand, nearly every outer panel was replaced apart from the rear panel
and left chassis rail which was pulled and aligned, the job took about 3
weeks to do and was quite a chellenge to get nice gaps between doors,
lights and guards etc, there were two donor cars needed, the first donor
car had alot of frontal damage and we needed a good chassis rail, so
another donor car awas found, the rally car was still worth repairing
because of the cromoly roll cage and other mods done to the body.
