    I am installing a D15B JDM into a 2000 Civic SI/EX (D16Y8) for a friend of mine. They were told that this engine would be a pretty much direct bolt in that you use the intake and exhaust from original engine and away you go.

    I pulled off intakes and noticed that the one has a chanel running above and the D15 block does not have that channel, so this concerned me right away. I called the company they got the engine from and he says just silicone the holes up...

    If someone could take a look at the image of both and verify this guy is telling the truth ands not in left feild that would be awesome.

    Everything is in and runing.... but i am getting surging idle.... goes from 1000RPM - 1500RPM when sitting still. I am thinking it may be the fuel maping system.

    Any Ideas?

    hunting idle can be a few different things.

    Plenty of threads about it

    it could be something silly like air in your coolant lines


    or TPS or idle valve sensor....

    Just make sure there's no air bubbles in the coolant lines and check each sensor on or next to the throttle body.

    Most can be cleaned with starter fluid or you can check for continuity for a bad sensor.

    I'm currently having the same problem, mine turned out to be a vacuum leak.

    P0505 Idle Control System Malfunction is the engine code it is throwing. It is the only code. It does run normal until it is warm then it starts the very little mini revs maybe 100 rpms. I could not find any bleeder for the coolant either.

    It is right on top of the thermostat housing.

    I fixed the issue. The channel that is shown on the intake from the D16Y8 head above has a vacuum line that used to go to an L valve that was on the side of the thermostat housing. The JDM 15B block did not have the same hole for the sensor and that head did not have the channel.

    What our mistake was we put in a joiner piece in to connect the 2 hoses not really understanding what it was doing... what that sensor was doing was warming up the air on startup then as it reached a temp it closed the valve in the L shutting the line off. With that valve not closing once it warmed up it was stealing vacuum causing the fluctuation.

    I just blocked the line off for now and it made an instant improvement dropping the idle to 750RPM and no more fluctuation.
