Hows the fitment? Does it change the position of the throttle body making the intake position change. How long have you had it on the Fit.

Any improvement power wise? Dyno numbers if any.

Fits the fit just fine, I've had on for about 100k.
No TB issues. I can feel the metal intake manifold is much cooler to the touch. Sadly my buttdyno didn't pickup any increases in hp.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread.. But I'm thinking about adding one of these to my car, I've already got the Weapon R intake manifold so it will be an easy install (undo 5 bolts, take out old gasket, put in new one, put 5 bolts back in, done! lol) I'm interested to see if the thermal gasket will make a difference with the other mods I've already done, especially with the aftermarket manifold..

There isn't actually a gasket in there, what there is is a plate (think thin metal gasket) that directs the flow of stuff for the EGR. You MUST re use the EGR plate to still have a functional EGR... Other than that it's simple stuff.

Not gonna be a noticeable (butt dyno) mod, but seemed like a good idea as I had already pulled apart all that to get to my Alternator lol

Oh, so should the metal place stay against the engine block or intake manifold?

Can't remember off top of my head, but it is fairly obvious when it's apart

Haha, thanks.. I'll keep an eye out, I'm sure it won't be hard to figure out. I'm just glad I'll only need to take out 5 bolts to get it done.
