It's time to turn up the heat on your hot-Honda with the Mishimoto Performance Intake Kit for you 2017+ Honda Civic Type R. The Civic Type R has a long history of showing off the maximum potential that Honda can achieve on its Civic platform. However, we here in the States never had the opportunity to experience Honda's hottest hatchbacks until the FK8 made its way across the Pacific Ocean. Even though the CTR is the cream of the crop when it comes to Honda's compact chassis, it?s still a mass-produced car, meaning there is still room to improve, especially when it comes to the intake system. Luckily, the OEM engineers laid the ground work for us attaching an aluminum runner from the turbo to the induction boot. This meant we only had to focus on what was attached to the end of the runner. For starters, we ditched the turbulence generating, accordion-styled intake hose and replaced it with 5 layers of silicone embedded with heat-resistant fibers. Our new and improved hose is also reinforced with steel wire ensuring that it keeps its shape even under the impressive boost the K20C1 puts out. On top of strengthening the intake boot, we've also made sure to increase the diameter and smooth out the interior which greatly assists the overall 42% increase in flow throughout the full system. The other contributing factors to our air flow increase are our precision adjusted MAF housing and improved airbox. We started by first separating the two, and then redesigning the MAF housing to ensure an increased flow but also retain safe fuel trim perimeters and run check engine light free on the stock tune. Our airbox grew in size to accommodate our freer flowing filter, and retains the factory rubber snorkel securing the dedicated intake channel incorporated in the CTR's hood. Combining all of these improvements unlocks a max gain of 16.7 whp and 20.1 wtq from your 2.0T.
