Our Product Development Team has been busy working on a Titanium Turbocharger Inlet Pipe Upgrade for the 11th Gen Honda Civic 1.5T & 3rd Gen Acura platforms over the past few months. Today we installed our 3D printed prototype inlet pipe to test fitment before moving into production. Check it out!
Though we have a few small revisions planned to allow for increased clearance and streamlined production, this general design is what customers can plan to see available.
What are the benefits from a Titanium Turbocharger Inlet Pipe?
Aside from drastically improving aesthetics in comparison to the factory inlet pipe, this upgrade eliminates intake airflow restriction before the turbocharger, allowing the turbocharger to operate more efficiently. Thin-wall Titanium keeps helps reduce heat-soak. Our design utilizes a cast aluminum inlet piece to allow smooth transition from the gasket-matched compressor inlet to a 76.2mm OD / 74mm ID outlet throughout the Titanium crossover pipe. We designed this kit to compliment Honda's 1.5L displacement perfectly by providing a significant increase in airflow volume in comparison to the factory inlet pipe, while maintaining velocity. A multi-piece design allows for easier installation and better fitment than a one-piece design. This kit is a direct bolt-on upgrade for factory turbocharger and factory replacement drop-in turbocharger upgrades.
