2021 Acura TLX Type-S Charge Pipe Upgrade Development

Acura TLX Type-S Product Development Scanning PRL

A few months back we had a local TLX Type-S owner drop his car off to collect some preliminary data for product development. Our team has been working on a few different products that we plan to bring to market for Acura's flagship turbocharged 3.0L chassis, including the recently released Replacement Panel Air Filter Upgrade.

Aside from the intake system, one of the first components that we sought to upgrade was the charge air system - the intercooler and charge pipe upgrade. While yes, we are currently working on developing an intercooler upgrade (more details to come at a later date), our team was able to make some headway on our charge pipe upgrade.

Our kit will utilize a 3" OD cold side hard pipe with integrated methanol injection bung to replace the factory ~2.4" ID rubber hose to increase airflow and engine bay aesthetics. The kit will come standard with a factory diameter hot-side hose upgrade to maintain velocity and turbocharger spool. All supplied hoses are constructed of multi-ply high temperature silicone to increase durability and are "stepped" to promote smooth, laminar airflow. This kit also eliminates the factory charge pipe resonator, which increases audible turbocharger noise. Stay tuned for more updates!
