Re: Honda Coolant Hose Delete? I also have the idle air bleed screw all the way in, so there should be now air getting passed the throttle plate. I went down to storage and looked at my set up and some spare parts. Tooling about the pits, the temps were under control. We think this is because the heater core will run in full bypass at times and Honda designed for it.
is there a down fall in blocking off your fitv? cause i try everything like new tps sensor, clean both fitv and iacv and still car still idle around rpm and 2k rpm. If you use your finger to cover the FITV port inside the throttle body, does the idle speed decrease to normal?
› › Engine Building. What are the advantages and disadvantages to blocking off the iacv?
Idle problem and surging throttle Honda Civic Forum
The reason I ask is I just bought a edelbrock performer x from.
For the sake of simplicity, removed everything else the factory used to heat this or that for emissions or driveability. I try to stay away from them.
Open the throttle and it passed lots of air, weakened the vacuum signal upstream, and made it run really lean and hot. Took us very little time to overheat as I recall. Thanks for sharing your experience. We looped the IACV line and the one to the throttle body, looped the heater line for a while, eventually we replaced the heater core and got it working again, racing in February is COLD!

FITV Block Off Acura Integra / RSX Forum
Our B18 has a whole bunch of coolant hoses. We tried blocking everything off but the upper head flow return and the radiator flow return. B18C, CR-V or B16a2 IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) manifold since if you dont want the FITV you can always block it off anyway.
They dont have reinforcements in them either like radiator hoses have.
This presumably cools the intake charge not so much for power, but to help reduce detonation events. You will be good to go. View Public Profile.

The coolant basically flashes off before you can see it leak. The hose from the upper coolant outlet to the thermostat is possibly the thermostat bypass.
