Now that our prototype billet end tanks are complete and sample cores are in, we have decided put together a few functioning intercoolers to test that our design lived up to its expectations. Our engineers datalogged some street driving with our 2023 Honda Civic Type-R FL5 using both the factory and PRL Motorsports intercooler upgrade before heading to the dyno. The dyno session was started by taking a completely stock baseline run at an average temperature of 59°F and an elevation of 1160ft. Here’s what we found:
Dyno Testing our 11th Gen Civic 2.0L Intake Systems
Last week we were fortunate enough to find a 6MT 2022 Honda Civic to use for intake system Dyno testing. We decided to install our Stage 1 Intake System and High Volume Intake System to publish some before-and-after results. Below are our findings:
PRL Motorsports Throwback Strut Bars for the Civic Type-R, Civic & Integra Now Available!
Front AND Rear Strut Bars for the FL5 Honda Civic Type-R, 11th Gen Civic & Acura Integra are now available!
Testing Fitment of Our 3D Printed Intercooler Upgrade for the FL5 Civic Type-R
Our engineers have approved fitment of our 3D printed FL5 Civic Type-R intercooler upgrade, now we are ready to start machining some billet end tanks. Who's excited?
Testing Fitment on our 3D Printed HVI for the 2023+ Honda Civic Type-R FL5
Happy Valentine's Bay! Our engineers have installed a 3D printed High Volume Intake System for fitment inspection. More details and pictures coming soon!

A First Look at Our 2023+ Honda Civic Type-R FL5 Intercooler Upgrade
This kit will utilize billet 6061 aluminum end tanks with integrated mounting brackets, factory-fitment flanges and a high-density bar-and-plate intercooler core like the rest of our kits. A 28.35"x7.25"x4.3" core allows for a ~10% increase in frontal surface area and a ~28% increase in potential airflow volume overtop of our FK8 Intercooler Upgrade. By removing the factory air guides, our intercooler assembly was able to be pushed even farther forward and includes new air guides for maximum airflow.
