Not worth it, the b16 manifold is fine, the runner length is tuned to you engine(by honda), the plenum is the correct size to promote as much low to mid range tq as the is is capable of making. I'm not going to lie, they look good under your hood but on a B16 kinda pointless.

Right now if its the only thing you are doing not really a point for $200...id just do what everyone does first, I/H/E and see if you like it then move on

Another thing is don't plan on getting a better throttle body unless you do major work to it. Throttle bodies can cause problems with a slightly modified engine. Stick with the regulars and go from there if that isn't enough.

if your looking for mid range power you have the wrong engine, swap in a b20 bottom end and there is your mid range
