    I can not find one! I need one now, but after 5 parts stores, they show me the wrong gasket. On the Y8, there are vacc. ports on the mani, but not on the head, none of the 3 gaskets they've showed me goes high enough to cover these holes. The engine is together and in my Ek, but after we started it up and heard a major air leak, we found teh gasket to be wrong, any ideas? I need my car asap...!!

    ANY AND ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED!!

    Even here it shows teh same gasket that everybody shows me, do i need to do something different than simply bolting on the gasket?

    well i have about 7 yrs of experience building tuning and turboing hondas, i have jb welded at least 20 of thse manifolds with no issue.

    the key is to thoroughyl clean the metal, and scuff the holes with 80 grit, so the jb weld sticks to it..

    trust me, its no big deal

    That's not the one for the D16, though, i think it's the b16.
    That's the only pic i could find
    It's a drastically different bolt pattern, the D has two sets of two on top, then three seperated on the bottom.

    sorry how about this one. number 11. this is from a honda website. i've checked every other 96-98 civic ex whether it's 4 door or 2 door and it's still the same part number.

    That's the one every mother fkr shows me, the gasket should have another oval shaped loop on top of the intake ports, to seal the vacc. holes. I suppose i have no choice but to jb the sht.

    *edit: Thanks for the effort, but i've been searching all day also and can't find sht.

    Just go to www.hondaautomotiveparts.com. Look up intake manifold and click the number you want, even if the pic doesn't look like your they will send the right one.

    except thats what he did, and thats where both pictures came from...its a sad situation, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do...i had to use helicoil for an exhaust stud because a torque spec was wrong. the helicoil holds, it just sucks that sometimes you gotta use stupid means to fix a problem.
