Technical Notes:

It’s no secret that Honda’s 1.5L turbo Civic is 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 550+ horsepower rated (though we have pushed 600+) 25.6x4x6.3” bar-and-plate bar-and-plate core and machined billet aluminum end tanks! This intercooler utilizes factory mounting spots with our embossed end tanks. Kits will come with all hardware needed for a seamless install.


Performance Gains:

  • 9 horsepower & 3 ft/lb torque gains by simply bolting on
  • 50+ F degree drop in post charge air temperature at peak
  • Average of 36 F degree drop in post charge air temperature
  • Increased efficiency & consistency in power delivery
  • Increased engine safety

Kit Includes:

  • (1) Intercooler Assembly w/ Billet End Tanks
  • (2) Air Guides w/ Stainless Hardware
  • (2) Billet Aluminum Factory Charge Pipe Adapters
  • (1) Cardboard Stencil w/ “PRL” Logo
  • (2) PRL Factory Style Replacement O-Rings

    Best performance upgrade!

    Got the charge pipes and intercooler all at once and man do I feel a 100% difference! I Always have sharp and consistent power going thru the whole engine. On take offs it feels like it wants to keep going and going and never stop just feels that good. Install is about 4 hours for charge pipes and intercooler. Take your time there is no rush on installing this! Enjoy the process and just have fun building!

    Must have upgrade for the 10th Gen 1.5T Civic

    Installation was fairly straight forward. Between the included instructions and several youtube videos I managed to install the PRL Intercooler, PRL Charge Pipe upgrade, PRL Cobra Intake, PRL Titanium Inlet pipe upgrade, and a Koyorad Radiator in about 8 hours. 10 hours including the tune and troubleshooting a leak in the system that was 100% my own fault. That said, it installed just fine and sounds amazing.

    I did get the powder coated black variant, which made it difficult to paint the white PRL on. The Krylon high temp paint I used seemed to want to flake off so I had to be very careful with it. Does PRL have a recommended paint? I also ordered the Stencil, and mine came with one in the intercooler box and the additional one I ordered. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to save the $20.
