Step 2
Remove the Clamps Holding on your Intake a Flat head should do this no problem and remove the Hose going from the intake to the Valve Cover

Step 3

Step 5
Locate the IACV its on the backside of the intake manifold. Its the black cylinder.. Now Remove the 2 Coolant Hoses coming off of it. Now Coolant may leak from the hoses so have a pan ready. while your there unplug the the IACV sensor.

Step 6
Now Take a 10mm and remove the Throttle Cable bracket. And Take out the Pin holding the throttle cable to the Throttle Rotor

Step 7
Now Remove the Vaccum line coming from the brake booster

Step 8
Remove the Vaccum line coming from the Charcoal Canister.. I do not have this so no picture of it being removed. Since i Removed the Charcoal canister.

Step 9
Right by the Distributor on the Intake Manifold there are coolant lines. Now Remove them with your Needle Nose Pliars. Now Coolant will leak From here as well. So be sure to have a Pan ready to catch it

Step 16.

Now its time to swap parts over from the old intake to the new one. I started by removing the 4 12mm Nuts from the Throttle Body. Be Careful not to Rip the Gasket. Cause No parts stores or the 2 honda dealerships in my area had these in stock. Also i soaked the inside of the TB with seafoam to remove carbon build up

Step 17
Take a 12mm wrench or socket and remove the IACV off of the old intake Manifold.. Notice this is how i Get rid of that Annoying Fluctuating Idle

Now Install everything in the reverse Order And Have Fun =)
