You need a ITR CAI...you can use your existing TB.

Along with the skunk2 IM, you need:

this is where I remote located my EVAP purge control solonoid. You will need to extend the wires to mount it in this position. The Skunk2 instructions say to zip tie it to the firewall. I thought that was pretty cheezey so thats why I mounted it like I did. I used a piece of aluminum bent into an "L" shape and then just bolted it to the firewall.

This is where the MAP sensor is located (red circle). It's in the same spot but the TB sits in a different pisition due to the new IM design. You will need to extend the wires to mount it in this position. This is an Integra LS throttle cable linkage (blue circle). You'll need it if you want to run the ITR throttle cable.

The installation is moderate/easy...you need new gaskets too ie; o-ring injectors, TB, and IM

I suggest you also use a Helms manual when extracting and replacing the new IM.

Good luck
