    just a quick one, obviously with the d14 mani the throttle cable raps round the engine then connects to the top fed throttle body.

    But the d16 mani is side fed, doesn't this pose a problem when connecting the throttle cable again? Anybody done it and got a picture of it all connected? Thanks.

    I used a d16 throttle body cable when i changed mines I think you can use your original d14 one but you have to cut/modify it. In my opinion just get a d16 one :Smile:

    do you know of a pictorial how to on changing the manifold, the plugs and stuff is what im after... the sensor connections look different.

    Theres this one isnt really a great tutorial tbh but it should help


    As for the plugs you will need to split some of them for them to reach and you will have to change a couple of coolent pipes to reach also

    As long as it's mounted properly it doesn't really matter what throttle cable you use. I'm pretty sure I've used my same D14 throttle cable for my D14, D16, B16 and B18. Just use the right mount for it (on the intake manifold) and have it adjusted properly.

    It doesn't matter how it's routed in the engine bay, as long as the end where it attaches to the throttle body is tight.

    think im gonna take it to my mate in honda as it'd be easier for them to just fit it i don't have ramps so gettin to the sodding bolts under the manifold is gonna be a pig!

    I've changed my intake manifold without a ramp before. It just takes a while, but it's possible. It was a stock D16 intake manifold being changed to an Edelbrock Victor X intake manifold.

    Yehh.. I have to agree, Me and Boggs didn't have a ramp and we got it completed on his facelift :Smile: .
