Default aftermarket intake manifold help!!

I have a 97 honda civic with a b16 motor NON VTEC and i am slowly but surely building it up. I have already installed a aftermarket cold air intake, header, and ran 2 1/2 inch exauhst from the header back to the performance muffler. But now i want to buy a aftermarket intake manifold and throttlebody but all the intake manifolds i see are for the VTEC and have the throttlebody on the side of the manifold, on my stock manifold its on the top, what manifold do i need to buy?


ps. ive used ebayexpress to order all my parts for all of my vehicles and it has worked out great so id like to keep it that way!

Provide us with the full engine code. I was not aware of Non-vtec B16's. You sure it is not a D16?

D16's were the stock motor for those vehicles.

You need to convert to the D16y8 intake manifold set-up while installing an aftermarket piece.

If you are not going turbo, or not completely re-building to the motor to put out serious power, an aftermarket intake manifold is pointless and will actually hurt performance. If you were looking for an upgrade, just locate the Y8 IM and TB.
