    hey guys just wondering if the throttle body from the y7 manifold blts on to the y8 im? it looks like its the same just turned sideways on the y7 manifold. the reason im asking is because i have a y8 manifold but its just the f.p regulator and manifold no fuel rail, t.b. etc....
    any help would be appreciated

    These are some buddies of mine in Miami- they swapped the Y8 manifold onto the Y7 block while still using the Y7 throttle body. Read up- it should help you out.

    The best thing to do is use the Y7 TB and swap the TB mounting plate from the Y8 TB to the Y7 TB. Or you can run you throttle cable under you IM and build custom TB cable bracket. I did the second of the two because I didn't have the Y8 TB and I couldn't just buy the plate from Honda, they wanted me to buy the whole TB. The first option is better but more expensive, the second works fine but is a bit of a hack job.
