    I haven been around these boards in a while but I gotta get this fixed and H-T isnt working out so here it goes...... So I just installed a skunk2 manifold on my jdm sohc vtec (D15B 93 dx sedan) and one bolt that holds the iacv on is hitting my brake portioning valve on the firewall and causes harsh vibrations throughout the car when driven any help on how this can be fixed?
    Thanks Anyone

    Relocate it a half inch or water. Enough to clear the bolt. The Six brake lines into the valve are bendable enough to let you relocate it enough to clear the bolt.

    hmmm i sort of bent it out of the way so i doesnt vibrate nearly as much...I just think its a poor design but on the flip side it performs great. low and top end :unsure:
