So ive been debating whether or not to install the MDX spacer now, or sell it to upgrade to a newer manifold/bigger throttle body. Is there a difference between the automatic and manual Intake manifolds and throttle bodies. Well i just went through and pulled pictures and part numbers to compare the 09+ TL-SH AWD Manifold and TB to the newer Accords, RLs, and MDX... A beer or two later and here. Also according to Wikipedia all J37 manifolds are cast magnesium(Accord is a J35 :p) Is this :toomuch:


Accord 08+ Manual



MDX 07+



09+ RL



11 TL SH-AWD



Now on to the part numbers.
Intake Manifold(RL had two)
Accord 17160-R72-A01
MDX 17160-RYE-A00
RL 17160-RKG-A00
17160-RKG-A01
TL 17160-RK2-A00


Intake Manifold Cover
Accord 17140-R72-A01
MDX 17140-RKB-013
RL 17140-RKB-013
TL 17140-RK1-A01

Throttle Body
Accord 16400-RYE-A01
MDX 16400-RYE-A01
RL 16400-RKG-A01
TL 16400-RKG-A01

Throttle Body Gasket
Accord 16176-RCA-A02

yup. I own one of the 09 RL IM and sold it cuz it didn't have the IAT sensor spot. I now own the 08 TL-S IM.

in the pic above the RL does have the IAT location. But for those using the AEM v2 or relocating the IAT it wont matter.

i was thinking the MDX manifold/tb would be a good choice. manifold looks like the TL manifold, TB doesnt though.

well anything is better than the 7th gen stock accord manifold...the 09 TL manifold from the 3.5 liter looks identical to the 09 TL SH- AWD 3.7 manifold EXCEPT the 3.5L manifold can use the 7th gen stock Accord Throttle body and the 3.7L manifold CANNOT. On another note P2R sells an adapter plate the allows a future upgrade to the 80mm 3.7L Throttle Body for use on the 7th gen intake manifold which would also be compatible for the 09 TL 3.5L manifold.

Here is a thread for the adapter.

Ignore the spike on this dyno. The line shows 254whp after the addition of the 80mm T/B. On stock throttle body its hard to see but the line shows 248whp. Not much of a difference but with some more mods you can see how this T/B starts to come in

So the 09 TL manifold works with the Accord Throttle body straight lines up with all holes and gasket?

Paul I'm confused. That dyno was done after the manifold install on the stock TB. Was there a 'before' dyno when you had the stock manifold? I can't see the dyno for whatever reason.

So you're saying the 3.5 Accord manifold looks identical except for the allowance of the 3.7L throttle body for future. I just can't stop thinking about the big bore TL throttle body and why it's only ~70mm at the outlet. If it were even 73 and could be bored to match at 75, it would be perfect! I've been looking around at other TB's that could potentially work on this setup and came across the 5.7L HEMI throttle body for the SRT8. I came across a link from a VW/Audi forum where they can use them with an adapter apparently. I believe they are 80mm as well as DBW. There are a couple part #s for it. One of them is PN 53032801ac.

80mm Throttle Body Upgrade - Problem?

There is the discussion about it on the Audi forum.

Cubano how sure are you about the 3.5L 09 TL manifold bolting up with the stock 03-07 accord throttle body?

What's the difference between the 08+ Accord V6 and 07-08 TL-S manifolds? Is the internal volume different?

Why is the upper piece of the clamshell designed differently?

Are both pieces magnesium or just the upper piece?

The upper piece has the electronics. I believe both are MAG. Not sure why the honda counter part cost more then the Acura. Maybe its just cuz of the A. lol

i found an 09 TL manifold... just need to confirm that it will work with the stock accord throttle body. Could also pick up the throttle body for the same manifold for $100 more :-/

09 TL will not work with the stock TB. If you look at it the gasket is different. That means that the TB is also different.

You need the P2R adapter Atlas. Then it will work.
