I just installed my skunk2 intake manifold on my 93 civic cx. The manifold hits and i need a way to prevent it from hitting. I have heard of hitting the fire wall but i dont know where to hit it. Willing to try anything.

Well, they usually recommend removing the manifold and bashing the firewall with a hammer until it bends away from the engine, then reinstalling the manifold.

Poly motor mount inserts will limit engine movement and possibly prevent hitting.

hit it wherever you need to make it fit......if there is an area that you for some reason refuse to hit to make it fit, sell the manifold and run the stock one. Dont hit the fuel lines that run on the fire wall......and remember dont quit till it fit :TU:

i put one on my 94 coupe z6 its an easy fix it hits the brake valve on the fire wall just get poly inserts for the mounts mounts they worked the best and use the search botton other people have had this problem and from searching i found that the bolt from the iavc is what hits the brake valve so not only did i use inserts i sanded down the top of the bolt about 1/2 way and i sanded the edge of the iavc when u mock up the manifold u will see were u have to sand and were it hits ill try to get pix to show what i mean
