Don't believe you'll have hood clearance issues. if you go with the TSX you can't use the IM because its drive by wire so you need to use a k20 IM with throttle and then you need a block off plate for the coolant passage. You should use Kpro for all, when you use kpro with a 6speed trans reverse lockout won't work.

Does anybody know if the OEM TSX header will work with a TSX motor in an EK?

I know I have heard that the TSX header can be used on the K20 block, although not producing good results it will fit correct? Just wanted to know because I can always upgrade headers later but I am going to try and get my car running ASAP and saving some money on a $1000 header would help...

:rolleyes:

could you just use a rsx TB and still use the tsx manifold?

i have not done too much research on the tsx motor. the dyno numbers look very promising :dance:
no you cannot, not sure on what the correct way to do it tho to make it work. I qoute nikos, "If you get one (tsx motor), you have to replace the throttle by wire with a normal TB assemply.. Also the tsx intake cannot be replace with a type r intake or the type s intake. The RBC would fit I guess.. "

it should. I would think it would fit nicer as well since it wouldn't hang as low.
