Lean burn is only available in 5th gear for the hx.

Our hx is a 1.6 motor
coupe only
wheels are light weight enkei designed wheels
5 pin wideband oxygen sensor
no moonroof
power windows and power locks standard
no cruise control
California models primarily did not have lean burn as it produces higher emissions
only civic from 92-00 to have an egr valve
cylinder head is designed to spin inward air into the combustion chamber
exhaust valve springs have a harder spring ratrate
Cam is slightly more agressive than ex model

The most telling sign a car is a hx is power windowindows with no sunroof. All ex trim models came with a moon roof, and all base models came without power windows

As far as lean burn it is the computer relying the car to restrict fuel above a cetrain speed and throttle point
