I've used both Seafoam and Lucas with great results. I've also heard Techron is very effective, and even STP.

Pouring whatever cleaner you choose into the TB will NOT clean your injectors. A FI engine doesn't work that way. It MAY help clean carbon build up in the intake, but it won't do anything for the injectors. There are several articles on various Honda forums on how to use Seafoam to clean your intake.

To clean your injectors, simply pour your chosen cleaner into the fuel tank. Fill the tank to ensure mixing, and drive the car. I wouldn't refuel until you get to 1/4 tank or less.

Professional shops do offer fuel injector cleaning services. These vary in effectiveness. If you go the professional route, I'd stick with a Honda dealer, or an aftermarket Honda shop.

Try using Seafoam. Pour it lightly into your throttle body and then take the car out for a spin at wide open throttle. You will get a ton of smoke, but that's normal.

I had the same thing in my 1998 Honda Civic and it had to do with the intake manifold setup on the J spec motor. We replaced it with the original intake manifold off the stock motor that we were replacing (that was originally in the car) and the idle was fixed. You will want to clean your old intake manifold though so that you don't get a bunch of junk in your fuel injectors.
