y8 mani on a6

ok well I need some help installin the y8 mani onto my d16a6, I know I have to move my iat sensor to my intake tube, but im confused oh the iacv,map sensor and all vac lines
EF4lyf3

Map sensor is the first sensor you see on top of the throttle body, TPS is on the side or the back of the throttle body if you are facing the firewall. IACV is right next to the TPS on the right and the IAT is the sensor on the runners of the manifold. Hope this Helps.
89CivicSi

lol I know where everythin is, my question is can I use all the y8 acc. or do I need to put the a6 stuff on the y8 mani. an I need to know how im gonna run the vac lines for the map and shit
HondaJunkie

Are you just deciding to switch up your intake manifolds for the heck of it or what do you have in the works?
89CivicSi

y8 has way better air flow than the a6, but since ive decided to clean an port the y8 I wanna put it on the a6 till my d15 block is done. which means I gotta have money to finish it.
HondaJunkie

Cool sounds good I had a ported y8 on my d15b7 it was the best d series manny for my turbo setup with the fat plenum and short runners.
EF4lyf3

I've read that compared to the Z6, the Z6 mani wins. The runners are a little longer, and the throttle body port is 1mm bigger. to each his own that's just my .02 my friends.

And you made it seem like you were confused about where they are my brother. My bad  Laughing
HondaJunkie

I did research for awhile and they where saying Z6 manifolds for N/A small plenum and long runners  or y8 for turbo fat plenum and short runners but I don't see how the gains could be that much more significant from either or but they are both great manifolds I just like the z6 look more.
jmanwantsboost

I will not lie i get so confused by all the different d series motors and parts haha.
89CivicSi

the y8 is good for turbo, an high cr builds with aggressive cams like mine
HondaJunkie

That's cool what kind of cam are you going to run?
89CivicSi

i have a bisi replica in it now
tenkaracole

nice Cool
89CivicSi

x2 oh wait its my thread lol but ya its more aggressive then the stock a6 cam i had in it, its basically a knock off lvl1 bisi non-vtec cam, i need an adjustable cam gear tho to better make use of it with tuning it correctly, but back on hand. needs INFO lol

Forgot already?? lol[/quote]
tenkaracole

I dont think you have to move your map sensor at all. but not possitive
89CivicSi

no but im gonna, cuz im deleting charcoal canister an other lines, and yes lol
tenkaracole

Confused  
89CivicSi

what??
EF4lyf3

what kind of emission laws do you have out there?
89CivicSi

cat and muffler, thats pretty much it they dont smog check or anythin, plus half the lines for the can are capped
EF4lyf3

LUCKY!!! out here and in cali the emissions laws are crazy. Smog every year, cat and NO MUFFLER. thats called modified exhaust out here Sad but im sure you know that already.
89CivicSi

non stock muffler is considered modified exhaust, upgraded size in exhaust tubing is considered modified but as long as we aint loud we good, except cops here are bigger dicks then metro trust me
EF4lyf3

Does that really exist??? Bigger dicks than metro?? WOW, im seriously shocked.
89CivicSi

Dead serious u can get a fat ticket an car takin becuz of music here, but hey I still blast that shit as I pass the fuckin 50 Smile
tenkaracole

WOW!!!!! here as long as you have a muffler your good normally you wont get in trouble for a test pipe! and your exaust is fine normally as long as they cant here you from a mile away!!!!!!! Very Happy  and local (small town) cops are pretty cool, and some will race you in their cop cruisers!
89CivicSi

They will race u here too, but after ur goin to jail lol
EF4lyf3

They actually race here to. But they use super fast Hondas from the impound lot so they can get as many people in the sting operations...Bastards, My associate got pulled over because he beat a boosted Fit, then the lights came on and he was like Shocked  Shocked  Shocked . That cobra was a beast though  Very Happy
jon_akers

Pro Tip - if you hear weird noises and see pretty lights, it doesn't mean they are losing the race.
EF4lyf3

Will be sure to consider this lol Very Happy
89CivicSi

just means if ur cars faster better make sure u can hide too  Twisted Evil
stormdrop

ah, this is why i love my state, there is 0 emissions testing or regulations. i  run open headers on my firebird drag car in town here. just dont be an ass, they dont care how loud you are. my civic is rocking a dc 4-1 header, with 2 1/2 tubing into a vibrant muffler for a crx and they dont say anything.  Very Happy
89CivicSi

Lol I'm from Arizona an its the same there where I lived. Moved to louisiana an bam get bent over by every cop there is
tenkaracole

HAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Razz
EF4lyf3

lol same with vegas as you know 89civicSI.

Im about to remove my whole exhaust and run open header for a while so I can show my suspension  Cool
89CivicSi

tenkaracole

YAY!! pics are good although i cant watch vids(slow dial up Crying or Very sad )
89CivicSi

ok guys well swapping mani out in a few days finally decided to just use my new Honda gasket for it instead of the mini me. but I forgot that I need to figure out how to mount the throttle cable to it, can I use the a6 bracket??
tenkaracole

I believe so! it should line up i think anyway! Very Happy  Shocked  Rolling Eyes
89CivicSi

lol Idk I don't wanna strip it all then be stuck with no throttle
tenkaracole

Good point! Embarassed  Oooooooh well!!
89CivicSi

lol I found a 84 in the junk yard here online, hopefully it has the bracket on it.
89CivicSi

alright guys well cant find the bracket so gotta mod one or make one somehow, but cant find a good write up for this on a a6 head, meaning vac lines(fpr,and map is all that's left Smile oh and dash pot) coolant lines, and will the a6 injectors fit in the y8 mani and rail? and I am using the tps,iacv,and relocating the iat sensor to the intake tube close to tb. but am I usin the a6 map or y8?
89CivicSi

come on guys needs input  Laughing
4dred6

same injectors, y8 map. and yea i did my map on the intake tube too.
all the other stuff should be the same.
89CivicSi

y8 map for sure even tho its from obd2? and by ame u mean my a6 injectors correct?
4dred6

yes
89CivicSi

alright so guess I will be swappin injectors on to the y8,usin the y8 tps,iacv and map. placing the iat sensor right by tb in intake tube. now just gotta paint the mani and im set. thanks man  Very Happy
EF4lyf3

Wait, have you changed the sensors to OBD1? Using the y8 sensors will not help in anyway because is OBD2
tenkaracole

oh shit! Embarassed
89CivicSi

No, was told on another forum that I can use them?
EF4lyf3

OBD2 is a muthaf%Cka . It's not compatible with obd1
4dred6

i have a obd2 gsr dizzy on my obd1 setup. he will fine. tps is same map is the same.
EF4lyf3

My apologies. I figured it would be compatible but Kevin explained it to me.
89CivicSi

I believe so that's why im double checkin, cuase by my understanding the only diff in the iacv,and tp is size,same with map sensor because its readin a larger pluenum, but everything has the same plugs, just gotta swap out injectors for my obd0
89CivicSi

found a good write up
http://civic.gotskillslounge.com/...20How%20Tos/d16y8manifoldswap.pdf
89CivicSi

well now im super pissed, went to the store and while tryin to leave, no start. all I could hear was starter solenoid click. push started it to get home and tested the starter and its done.  Crying or Very sad  and I was gonna be swappin manis tomorrow now I have to do the starter instead. but on another note the mani is completely cleaned and ready for painting
