    Overview

    INTERCOOLER INSTALL GUIDE

    Important Notes:

      • NO ECU CALIBRATION REQUIRED
      • THIS REQUIRES MODIFICATION OF THE BUMPER BEAM FOR PROPER CLEARANCE

        Technical Notes:

        It’s no secret that Honda’s newer turbo platforms are extremely susceptible to heat-soak, especially when retaining the factory intercooler. Excessive heat-soak increases the risk of detonation and causes major power-loss due to high charge air and cylinder temperatures. These issues become even more prevalent with spirited driving and/or increased power outputs. The PRL Motorsports intercooler upgrade decreases charge air temperatures while increasing potential airflow with its dense 27 x 3.5 x 7.25" 550+ horsepower rated bar-and-plate core. Our intercooler core which increases surface area by 85% and internal flow by 83% to allow optimal cooling and airflow. This intercooler utilizes factory mounting spots with cast aluminum end tanks as well as all factory air ducts/shrouds.

        Performance Gains:

        • Mid-range & top-end power gains
        • Major drop in post charge air temperature at peak
        • Increased efficiency & consistency in power delivery
        • Increased engine safety

        Kit Includes:

        • (1) Intercooler Assembly
        • (1) Cardboard Stencil w/ “PRL” Logo

          Solid upgrade

          The worse part of the install was taking the front bumper off. The video that is linked in the instructions wasn't as detailed as I would have liked but, after removal, installation was a breeze. A better video of how to take the bumper can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3aXv2rH_kg

          I am now the proud owner of a TLX that makes more wooshy noises. Keep 2.0t TLX parts comin!

          Worth the money

          Fits perfectly, just make sure to the give yourself plenty of room when trimming the bumper. Getting the bumper off my TLX 2.0t was the hardest part of the whole process. Make sure to do your research.
          Pros-I’ve noticed more torque from lower in the power band. Ease of installation
          Con-where the o-ring goes on the cold side was not the best CNC work. It was not a perfect oval making it tricky to seat correctly but I was able to get to stay with the help of a buddy(see picture).
