AIRTEC Motorsport Front Mount Intercooler for Honda Civic FK8 Type R
As part of our expanding Honda Civic FK8 Type R product range, AIRTEC Motorsport is proud to launch our intercooler upgrade suitable for track or fast road use.
In order to ensure there is no noticeable loss in performance during extended periods of hard driving, we have developed a larger, freer-flowing intercooler that is a direct replacement for the smaller and more restrictive OEM item.
Our solution to increasing the intercooler’s size and performance within the confines of the limited space behind the bumper is based upon a wide and short core with a huge 125mm depth. This offers a massive 140% increase in overall capacity in comparison to the original intercooler, as well as a significant increase in frontal area over standard, which allows it to make the most of the air flow provided.
The inlet side of the intercooler increases from 50mm diameter to 63mm, whilst the outlet increases from 55mm to 70mm to further improve flow. The original oval boost hose connectors with O-ring seals have also been re-designed to feature simpler and less restrictive silicone connectors.
Together with our high-flow, moulded one-piece cast end tanks and an internal air diverter to ensure flow is directed correctly and efficiently, the AIRTEC Motorsport intercooler offers much greater efficiency and volume over standard.
