Default wheres the MAP SENSOR

Alright guys my friggin car is acting up. When i mash the gas at low RPMs it just starts bogging down and when i keep it down for a while it will throw a CEL. I called honda to ask if they had a new map sensor they said it was on top of the trottle body but there isnt one on there the only thing on there is a trottle postion sensor facing the firewall. When I looked again the only thing there was is next to my fuel filter it says MAP Sensor on it but why is Honda telling me different, and why would it be there instead of on the trottle body. So can anyone tell me where its at and/or what the problem is with my car. So confused. I have a civic hatch DX d15b7

i dont have a civ but i'll try to point it out in a pic for you in one of my cars later (whenever i can find my keys).

edit: it shouldnt actually be on the throttle body...it should be just behind it on the manifold somewhere. im not sure where it is on that gen civic bit its here on my moms mini-van ('ll try to get a pic of the jimmy later too to get it on another car)

Did you give the dealer the right year? Some have the map sensor mounted on the throttle body, others have it on the firewall with a vacuume line leading to the top of the throttle body.
