Hi guys, I bought a 06 TSX IM and TB from K20A.

Here are a few pics,





















I have a few questions,
1. Looks like the guy sent me the injector base too...?
2. If so should I put that on too?
3. Will I need any extra gaskets?
4. Is this the vacuum hose?



5. Should I clean the TB and IM before I put it on? If so any thing specific to look out for?
6. Is the a DIY for the 06+ models?
7. Are the model numbers correct?
8. What is this?



Anything else I am missing out guys?

This is my first performance mod before my CAI, which is coming in next week.

take out the injector base and I think that is a vacuum pressure monitor. The accord shouldn't have it so take it out and connect the vacuum line to the IM directly.

Thanks for the info, now I need more help.

Tried to install it today but had problem getting to bolt under the manifold out. :(

So had to put it all back together. Can somebody advice me the easiest way to get the bolt out?

Finally done with the install, But I have a new problem now.
its has a very rough idle and very , some times feels like the engine is dying and then it picks up high.


Then I cleaned up the engine bay and


This is what its doing:

Install was easy except for two things.
1. The bolt under the IM was really hard to get to, and I didn't have the right tools.(paid the local mechanic guy $5 to get it out).
2. The TSX TB was too big for my OEM intake piping, TB is 64mm and the piping was only 60mm so had to force it in,and the clamp that hold it tight didn't fit.
Waiting for my CAI to come in next week.
