Technical Notes:

There’s a reason our Cobra Cold Air Intake Systems is a constant topic of discussion and so highly regarded. Our CNC machined billet aluminum MAF Housing was designed to provide *factory-spec fuel trims (-4% of factory STFT & LTFT) for optimal drivability and performance. The Cobra CAI utilizes a 4" volume from the air filter into the MAF Housing and is available with two different MAF housing choices; a Street housing and a Race housing. Both housings utilizes the factory MAF sensor, but feature two different diameters and profiles. As mentioned above, the Street housing is designed to provide factory-spec fuel trims WITHOUT any tuning whatsoever. The Race housing allows a 50% larger volume of air in comparison to the Street housing, which is why a tune IS required. This larger volume of airflow reduces pumping loss and creates an unrestricted air path to feed the MAF housing with ambient temperature air.

Customers can switch between MAF housings without having to buy another intake system by purchasing our MAF Housing Conversion Kit

Customers can convert to a Short Ram Intake with our Short Ram Intake Conversion Kit

Performance Gains:

  • 15 horsepower and 12 ft/lb torque gains in comparison to stock with Street MAF housing WITHOUT TUNE - Read More Here!
  • 20 horsepower and 15 ft/lb torque gains in comparison to stock with Race MAF housing WITH Race MAF basemap calibration on Hondata and/or KTuner – Read More Here!
  • Larger gains to be seen at higher power levels with custom tuning

Amazing

The Best CAI I have seen for the 10th Gen 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 installed the RACE MAF Version in addition to the Phearable Stage 1.5R tune. I did them hand in hand, and could not be happier with the result. The intake sounds amazing, installation was quite easy. If you are trying to pick your intake I would recommend either the Street or Race. If you plan to tune, just go with the RACE.

Best CAI Money can buy, hands down!

II am a new 2021 Civic HB Sport owner and have just started to mod my car. This was my first performance mod for the car and I couldn't be happier with it! It sounds awesome and it definitely gave the car an extra turbo sounds while driving. I would recommend PRL to anyone that wants a high quality cold air intake upgrade. A fairly easy to install, less than 2 hours with some mechanical knowledge and a set of ramps. I have my wish list started PRL and will definitely be back for more mods.
