Keep the charged air temperatures down in your turbocharged Civic with the 2016+ Honda Civic Performance Intercooler Kit from Mishimoto! The stock intercooler utilizes a tube-and-fin construction coupled with plastic end tanks, giving high temperatures a perfect breeding ground. The Mishimoto intercooler is designed with the Honda enthusiast in mind and eliminates high charged air temperatures that set up shop in the stock intercooler.
The all-aluminum, bar-and-plate construction is specifically designed to shrug off heat generated from compressing air into the intake manifold. Our intercooler also has increased the volume by 102% and fin surface area by 97%, which helps drop outlet air temperatures by 20 F over the stock intercooler, and up to 42 F once a performance tune is added.
The benefits of the Mishimoto upgraded design don't stop with the intercooler. The direct-fit intercooler kit also gives the stock intercooler piping an overhaul. We ditched the plastic and rubber combination that made up the original equipment and replaced them with mandrel-bent aluminum and 5-layer, fiber-embedded silicone couplers. Our piping also increases the size of both the hot and cold-sides of the piping system from 42mm to 55mm, equating in a 30% increase in size.
We also took the liberty of reducing the angles of the bends in the piping, giving the charged air a more direct flow through the intercooling system and improving the flow. Our performance intercooler kit adds up to 4 hp and 8 ft-lbs of torque on the stock tuning, with the potential to boost that power gain to 11 hp and 9 ft-lbs of torque with a tune.
