Even though the FK8 Civic Type R is the fastest Type R ever, there is always room for improvement. Since the FK8 is the first Type R to use s turbocharged engine, it opens a world of tuning possibilities. Bolt on parts have a much larger impact on forced induction engines compared to naturally aspirated engines. For this reason, the aftermarket for the FK8 is HUGE. Injen, a world leader in cold air intake systems, has just released their second FK8 Civic Type R intake.
This new intake from Injen is designed to be a direct replacement for your OEM intake and will bolt right in easy. The intake features a large, oversize heatshield which helps keep hot air from the engine bay out, plus the larger cone filter improves flow while also improving filtration compared to the stock exhaust. The result is tons of cold air being fed to the turbocharger. With dyno proven gains of up to 20hp, this new FK8 intake is one of the best mods available, especially considering the price.
- Dyno proven gains of up to 20hp and 17 ft-lbs
