Default Will 92-95 dx intake manifold fit on cx head?

I have a 92 civic cx 1.5L 8 valve. I can not find the intake tube for this engine. the inlet to the throttle body is smaller than regular civics. I tried to swap over another throttle body from a dx but it doesnt fit.
I was wondering if i can swap over the intake manifold of a 1.5L dx 16-valve. Anyone know if this will bolt up and will i lose any power due to this swap. Thanks.

It should bolt up but you may lose air velocity due to the larger inlet. With the IM you will need the larger throttle body that goes with it.

You should be able to find other VX/USDM CX in your local salvage yards to get another intake tube.

It's the same tube I need but I only have access to the rare VX. At least you have 2 models (1 a bit more common) that has that discontinued air tube.
