Hi and welcome hope you enjoy your new motor if you want to know more about 8th Generation models names you can find it here on the wiki
EK was part of the 6th Generation line with the EK9 being the 1st Type R Civic
EP was part of the 7th Generation line.
If you want to know more on all the chassis just check wikipedia as they have a good break down on all the generations and chassis
