So which is which? and what was the outcome of the comparison? I am sure they did not just compare them on the floor, visually?

Where are the numbers?

NO dyno yet... Just got them last night.

Ron (edo) said that hondata's Derek got 17whp more... I am not sure on which cams etc...

You can see which one is bigger, that is the RBC.

so far it looks like the Eliment TB may work too.
if it does, let me know, so i can maybe get back to working on fitting one of these on a DC5. right now im experimenting with the plenum extensions in different volume sizes. im hoping i can offer a carbon or fiberglass version for like 75$ or so. may be a cheap and easy solution for some, IF it yeilds results

So the manifold is a direct bolt on for the TSX block right? no machining neccesary?

OK I got my hands on an 02 CRV TB and it is a perfect fit for the TXS mani so if the RBC uses the same style TB as the TSX we are in. Oh and the CRV TB is the same size as the TSX.
We test fit the CRV TB on the RBC manifold and it does not work, the bolt pattern is completely different. Additionally, the CRV TB is only 60mm.

looks like the RBC manifold is going to own for powerband/torque gains... are those tapered runners? also, does it have a bolt-on plate underneath like the K20A2 manifold, so an expansion chamber can be added, like what rcrew racing did?

also, ive got an Accord manifold, i wonder how it would compare?... the runners are even LONGER then that one, the manifold is actually two pieces (if i remmeber correctly)

ok, well that sucks about the CRV TB. so much for that easy fix. there is no bolt on chamber plate, this is a sealed unit.
