For decades enthusiasts in the US wanted the Civic Type R, but they never brought it to the US. They always stuck us with the watered down SI model, at least until the FK8 came along. The FK8 is the first turbocharged Civic Type R ever and the first to come to the states. It’s been a massive success, and the aftermarket support has been exploding. As with any turbocharged car, an aftermarket intake is a great first modification.
HKS, as you probably know, is one of the biggest and most popular manufacturers of aftermarket JDM performance parts. For the FK8, they already a host of different products, and now they’re offering their new cold air intake for the FK8! Unlike some other cold air intakes on the market, this new HKS intake uses a full intake box to house the filter.
The intake box itself is constructed from high-quality dry carbon fiber. They designed the box to house the HKS filter and keep out the how air from the engine bay. With a duct system similar to the OEM intake, the HKS intake pulls cold air from outside the vehicle to the filter. Cold air is much more dense and less prone to detonation than hot air, helping your FK8 make more power safely.
