I don't think 96-00 auto has an IACV, which is something you need. In otherwords, you need a manual transmission intake manifold.

Wait a sec. The IACV is on the TB on ALL 5th gens, isn't that right? (I might be wrong here, but if I remember correctly that is the case) So the manifold should be good.

no the automatics dont have it, only the manuals do. on the y8 intake manifold.

also when you put the y8 im on a obd1 car you have to convert the iacv,

Not the point I'm trying to make. I am pretty sure that ALL 5th gens have the IACV on the TB. Is that not the case? (looking at pictures of a TB from a 94 dx auto and it is on the TB).
