While you are playing with things, slap on your throttle cable. I know you are having a rough day with all of the sensor and booster port interferences w/ your k24 and RBC into the EG, but I think you will have an even larger task at hand when you try to hook up your throttle cable. My throttle cable just barely clears the hood w/ my adapter w/ a k20. My adapter rotates the TB such, that interference w/ the throttle cable is minimized, but I think you are going to have big problems in that area w/ the Speedwerx adapter... Sorry to be the bearer of more bad news... Good luck!!!

Nikos, I dont know if you are into the style... but you can put some washers at the back of your hood on the bracket, and it can hold your hood anywhere from 0-1 inch higher near the windsheild.

I did it on my car

Well, Brian... the Civic EK throttle cable seemed extemelly long and got on my nerves... So I went to the dealer and ordered a 92 Civic Si throttle cable... Much much better!

The car was having trouble with overheating so I tested the thermostat and it was bad. So I got another one.. I also had a water leak in the most bitch of places... inside the heater core... fixed that too... The day I am going to get my first ticket with the TSX civic is coming closer!! I KNOW IT!!! lol

You will have one soon...

Maybe your EX cable might sit lower on the throttle cable bracket, but the length that it protrudes from the bracket here is the issue I'm talking about.


My adapter angles this back (as shown), but yours is sticking straight up. Let me know what you find w/ this on your setup...

So, is this the verdict? With a k24 and rbc manifold, all you have to do is cut the skeleton on the hood? No need to shim? Wonder if this varies by different mount kits. I'm running HAsport.

Here are some pics of my RBC install in an EG with Hybrid mounts. I did remove the vacum, then tap and plug the hole. I have a CF hood but it does close with out cutting.
