Default engine backwards?

http://tinyurl.com/4cwb3

Hey whats the deal, i thought that honda's had all the
power steering, alternator, A/C, and timing belt crap
on the right side (Driver side here in North america).

Is it reversed for cars outside of NA? Or is this pic just
transversed?

My legend has the belts on the right (passenger's) side. I guess maybe the
RSX is set up the same way. The 2nd gen legends have the belts on the
front.... the engine is mounted longitudinally.

They do both depending on model. It is not related to what market it
goes to. And here in NA the driver's side is on the left :-)

My '94 Civic has engine on the left, tranny on the right. I believe the
current Civic Si has engine on the right, tranny on the left, whereas
the current non-Si Civics are the other way around.

The K-series motor used in the RSX is much different from the earlier B-
series motor and thus reversed in the chassis. One of the tuning magazines
did a big,detailed article on the K motors and their differences.Lots of
great pictures,too.Alas,I do not still have that mag,so I couldn't tell you
what mag or issue it was. Either Sport Compact Car or Honda Tuning,I think
it was the former.

It does look that way. For what it's worth, my 5th gen Prelude is the
opposite to the engine in the picture.

If the photo were reversed, so would be the lettering, which is not.
