    it should be. i dont understand what you mean by the airbox being over the throttle body, usually is behind that right front headlight.

    The Civic LX had a funny lookin' intake system... more like 2 air boxes than one... the filter is in a box on top of the TB and there's a box down behind the headlight...

    Strange. Anyway, yes.

    The D Series cable is crazy long and will be long enough x2 lol. I had to rig something up down by the pedal for a day or two till acura delivered my GSR cable the other day. Either fab up a bracket or buy the correct cable.
