After you do that, of course you'll need an adapter plate. I'm running the karcepts one because the fitament is dank, where the other ones are like shwag. After that you will need to notch out some of your radiator support, but you'll be able to tell what needs to get cut out when the manifold is hooked up to the motor, so definitely unbolt the radiator support when you're installing it first. The last thing is that you'll need an injen cai with the rubber elbow to still run a cai on it
Yeah z1 is just like the 02-04 heads but whoever said that you have to cut the the water port off the rbc to fit on the tsx head is wrong. i just put my rbc on my k24a2 about 4 hours ago with no problem...:up:PapiTuyo326 said:I thought the z1 head was just like the 02-04 heads?
The TSX is in my 00 SI which has the RBC, my 02 civic has the stock type-r manifold..I was thinking of doing the RBC but i would have to cut the upper radiator support like that EP3 up top.ImportRacer2123 said:So did you fit a RBC into a 2002 civic chassis?
