Just another old guy ....
Did you cap off the un-used vacuum port that's on the TSX IM?
You need an 04-05 IM because "03-05 accords have an idle air control valve and therefore need a cutout in the intake manifold to allow airflow through the IACV. The 2004-2005 Acura TSX has the IACV slot present although no TSX has ever featured an IACV." The 06 tsx IM doesn't have this cutout.I am worried that it is off an 06+ it won't be compatible, for one due to the change in TB size.
It would be a downgrade, even if it fit, which it won't.does anyone know if this mod might work on an 8th gen i4
Then you understood incorrectly. This entire mistyped statement is wrong. Please read the entire thread two or three times along with all the other TSX IM swap threads on the internet to educate yourself on what this does before you modify your car any further. Last thing we need is people blindly modding and then screaming bloody murder because the mod they performed doesn't do what they thought it was supposed to do.My bad it was night when i was typing, Well using the TSX Im Mod I read from all your guys post regarding it helps the airflow and exhaust flow better so in reality doing this cheap mod would help dual exhaust on the I4 without i think the loss of lower end back pressure would be too much and make me fail Ca Emissions smog so Thats why i was looking to do this sorry about the typing <noob>
I think that slotted portion was the IACV but I could be wrong on that one.You're good Z the main difference was the idle air port on the TB side of the manifold. There was a slanted portion where the throttle body bolted onto the manifold.
