Karcepts Idle Air Control Valve Block-Off Plate

The Karcepts Idle Air Control Valve Block-Off Plate provides the SOLUTION for eliminating the K-Series IACV on 2002-2006 Acura RSX-S and 2002-2005 Honda Civic Si throttle bodies. Of course, our Block-Off plates also fit the many aftermarket throttle bodies designed for those vehicles' engines. If you need to avoid IACV interference with your radiator, radiator fan, or just want to clean up the engine bay even further, this piece is for you! This block-off plate will also help to solve the issues related to bolting the above mentioned throttle bodies onto intake manifolds that do not have idle air porting provisions (such as the newer RRC and RSP intake manifolds).

Contrary to what some assume, the K-Series engines run surprisingly well with the elimination of the stock idle air control valve. We've utilized this block-off on many customer vehicles; all with positive feedback, and no negative effects pertaining to drivability or stalling.

The only requirement for utilizing the Karcepts Idle Air Control Valve Block-Off Plate is that you will need Hondata K-pro (or an equivalent programmable ECU) to disable stock function of the OEM idle air control valve.

To install:

1. Remove the OEM idle air control valve from the throttle body.

2. Bolt on the Karcepts Idle Air Control Valve Block-Off with the supplied hardware (and retain the OEM IACV rubber gasket).

3. Disable the OEM IACV on Hondata K-pro (or an equivalent programmable ECU).

4. (THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP) Locate the throttle stop on your K-Series throttle body to set the idle mechanically by re-adjusting the position of the stop. On an OEM K-Series throttle body you will need a 7mm wrench (to loosen the jam nut) and a 2.5mm allen key (to adjust the throttle stop set screw). Once engine idle is set as desired, lock the jam nut back in place.

Not only will this clean up the bay but will also help out all those running ekk1 mount kit since the iacv plug rubs against the stock radiator; heck they can finally fit an aluminum rad half/full in their bay! :D

Another nice addition to the line up Brian! looks amazing with the cc delete and tb cable bracket!!! :up::up:

I would think that along with this plate, that filling the IAC port in the floor of the TB throat with something like JBweld should greatly help airflow thru the TB.

Or you could use 2 of these(one with a outlet nipple and the other with two nipples on it) to mount the IAC remotely of the TB, and then use something like -10 line to connect to the TB and to a new fitting on the new mani's that are made for the new DBW tb's that do not have a IAC.
