Which is why the 2.3 dura will see more gains then the 2.0 dura with the same bolt on....

A zx3 ses/se with a Top Speed Manifold will see more number gain vs a SVT with Top Speed manifold with in the same as a civic being a zx3. You see larger number games from stock. But even as top speed states on there Manifold for NA SVT There Vs. Stock you see a 13whp/9tq gain with just the intake and a CAI. But all this is in relations reason why a SRI/CAI show no gains for us vs the stock box with a drop in filter is because the filter was reducing filtration and the TB/Inlet was restricting the Air flow. IF you where to port the inlet and larger TB you will actualy have a gain with a CAI/SRI. Granted we might be speaking in very little numbers. But it will get more air and produce more power. But I figure you know how a NA engine functions.

I ported the stock throttle body and was very satisfied with the results, much better throttle response off idle without any hesitation.
