Default Blox intake manifold issue?

Just recently installed a blox intake manifold on a b18b1 now my idle is all messed up and isn't allowing me to give it any gas? Suggestions?

sounds like you either have a vacuum leak or a sensor isnt plugged up/or a faulty sensor.

1. Were new gaskets used?
2. Did you also install a aftermarket throttle body?
3. Did you cross the tps and map plugs?
4. Why the fuck does somebody install a blox manifold on a stock ls? (assuming it is stock becuase no other mods were listed)
5. Leave shit alone if you don't know what you are doing.

You put a higher flow intake manifold on, which slows the air mixture down and is probably a different runner length also. You're going to need a tune.

Also check the plugs for the TPS and the MAF, because you might have misaligned something when plugging the connectors back in shoved a connector pin out of the connector shell, or something like that.

It was just an intake leak, no tune was needed. Still gonna get one, but reason being just trying to have a simple and clean dc2 inside and out, thanks for the advice though

Why did you take the b18c1 out of it to begin with? Also define intake leak? The metal itself has a hole in it, gaskets were incorrect or incorrectly installed, o ring from iat was missing??

I didn't take the c1 out, and it was the gasket that was bad. Got it from autozone- first mistake. Got an own Honda one and problem solved.
