Hey guys, I'm back once again with a question I couldn't find the answer too on google. Hoping your expertise could help me out a bit here. Anyway, some guy local is parting out his rsx type s and is selling the intake manifold and throttle body for decent price.

Now I know that rbc intake manifolds on k24a4s is nearly useless but how about the throttle body?

Here's my main concerns about it.

1. Will it bolt right on and plug in without any issues?

2. Would I be able to notice any power gains?

3. Is it even worth it for 125 bucks

Looking forward to your response

^^ Totally agree ... you didn't mention what year Accord you have, but if you REALLY want to go down the TB swap road, pick yourself up a used TSX model online or at the local scrapyard. For ~ $100 you should be able to get an IM and TB from the right year TSX.

Very true, hence the "from the right year TSX" in the comment above.

06-07's Accord's (the 7.5 gen) have "drive by wire", as well as the 06-08 TSX ... That's why both my IM and TB came from an '08 donor.
