D'oh, nevermind me, maybe I'm thinking of a phase 1 ej251, could of sworn it wasn't on top.

Re: Where the heck is the IACV?

Yeah, my engine definitely doesn't have that.. Your engine bay looks slightly different than mine.. I searched online and found the "pressure control valve" for my car. Would that be the same thing as the IACV? Here's the part number: 42084AE130

Thank you guys for your help.

Re: Where the heck is the IACV?

EJ251 motors from 02ish-05ish with cable throttle have IACV as pictured above (non turbo)
all models with drive-by-wire (electrically controlled throttles) there is no IACV because the throttle automatically opens a bit as needed

My engine bay looks like this:

Thanks for the confirmation. So I guess there's no IACV to worry about.

Re: Where the heck is the IACV?

nope, you have a drive-by-wire (electronic throttle) so it has a built-in ECU controlled idle
