The best intake manifold and throttle body for a B16 that will give you the best gains are the ones that are matched with your engine setup.

Throwing on a 10947519034875mm throttle body and a plenum with 1mm runners and a 45973908573097523907^2345903789 area of space inside the plenum area won't do dick for your otherwise stock engine. You may get like 5hp from the mid range to the top end.

Match your mods. That's the best combination right there.

What current mods do you have done to your car?

For Intake manifold an oem itr would be a good choice.

You should check on power enterprise throtle bodies, very well priced, fit like oem and I dont have any sticky gas pedal.

^^^ this is the guy you want to listen to. Forget everyone elses replies.

Honda is not stupid. The whole bigger is better thing is Finlay on its way out. Id say and mildly built b16 setup should stay with stock tb and IM. Even many b18 setups will make a better power curve using the b16 mani. It all depends on the setup and where your peak power is....

Generaly speaking, on a b16, the b16 manifold is going to make more power and torque than an ITR mani all the way up to 8000rpm. After about 8200rpm the ITR starts to make better top end, but the power band before hand suffers more than its worth up top.

There have been plenty of test that back up my statements.

If i were you, id spend my money on a badass header and 2.5" exhaust. If taken care of these mods are ones that will last you a long time and will be benificial no matter what.

without a higher vtec changeover point the ITR intake manifold will actually cause you to lose power when vtec kicks in for a several hundred rpms cause theres too much air entering the head at too low of a rpm. when i first installed the ITR manifold i had the CTR intake/exhaust cams and when vtec engaged at 5500 rpms the car actually bogged down for several hundred rpms,it acted like i wasnt getting enough fuel to the motor(air/fuel ratio).once i raised the vtec changeover to 5800 or 5900 rpms the car ran really strong and never had any power loss through the entire rpm curve. the ITR manifold is definitely worth the money but as a simple bolt-on its not gonna really help you unless you have other parts to go along with it. does you no good if you can get more air into the head but cant get that air out. invest in a nice header first, the intake manifold and throttle body isnt really gonna give any gains until youve gone further into your tuning. in my opinion doing the throttle body and intake manifold on your stock b16a would be like installing the jackson racing supercharger on your car without the belt....does you no good at the current stage on your tuning.
