    I'm in the middle of installing a high flow air intake to my 97 Civic, and I have the problem of the diameter of the intake being larger than the throttle body opening. Being a newbie in the engine world, i need ideas on what I need to seal the intake onto the throttle body. Anyone else had this issue? Need help fast!! Thanks!

    1) measure the TB **outside** diameter (should be about 2 1/4").
    2) got to Lowes or Home Depot plumbing section and take your air intake pipe
    3) ask someone for a **fernco** band reducer that will fit the air intate pipe and the outside diameter of your TB..
    4) pay your $5 and leave
