    Using the victorX manifold on the b18c1, you should use the b18c5 (type R) throttle cable.

    If the cable isn't the problem, you may need to adjust the IAC valve (idle air control). its on the back of the throttle body.

    Yes, from the integra type R.

    The b18c1 (gsr/sir-g) uses the unique manifold with the IAB butterflies in the runners. The victorX is styled after the ITR/b16 intake manifolds, and thus, the throttle cable mount point is different.

    the iac is on the back of the manifold (not the throttle body-- typo in first post)

    it is adjustable. this article may help:

    i think he's saying the air stream blows in his face/head area when he leans over the engine?

    just follow the air until you find the source man.

    what kind of gasket did you use when you installed this manifold it could also be leaking or you have a vacuum line not hooked up or some thing like that
