Default For TSX K24 swap in to EG, how do I get it going without drive by wire throttle cable?

For TSX K24 swap in to EG, how do I get it going without drive by wire throttle cable? What do I need to get my car running? I'm thinking about picking up a K24 from this guy that has a totalled TSX. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

pretty sure you can throw a K20 head on there and do the frankenstine and get rid of the drive by wire. correct me if im wrong.

I've heard that I can just switch to a K20 Throttle Body, but wanted to confirm this.

And again, I'm referring to a TSX K24 already with 11:1 compression. Just do some headwork and call it good. I dunno.

Like stated above, Just swap out the TB for one off of a RSX w/ a regular throttle cable and run k-pro. Problem solved. There is no need to swap the whole head.

In order to run a K20 throttle body, you'll need an adapter plate. To do as direct of a swap as possible, get an Accord ('02 - '04) throttle body. They use similar intake manifold designs and are cable driven.
