    after my manifold swap on my b16, i've been having some idle problems. i found that my throttle body wasn't sealing well so i tried a new gasket. I used sealent and torqued it down, but air was still getting through. so i tried to over torque it and snapped a stud. could the flange on the manifold be warped? any opinions on my situation or tips on getting a good seal would be appreciated.

    check all your vacum lines for any leaks,maybe try a gasket thats made for that throttle body you have..you have a jdm b16 obd0?if so i think you need a 90 integra tb gasket..
