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+) 25.5x4x6.3” 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

    I’m having a hard time with this install.

    I can’t give a accurate review at this time because I have installed the charge pipes and intercooler. The fit seem perfect except I can’t get the stock air box to fit in properly with the bigger pipes. So I have ordered the short ram intake from you. I was hoping it would arrive soon so I can drive the car. I haven’t received any update or tracking number for my order.
    Thank you for everything PRL.

    Best mod for the 1.5t

    The car is now makes full boost to red line with zero boost taper! It’s amazing what just cooling the air more efficiently can do for the overall power band. This should definitely be the first mod for your 1.5t civic

    First time ever doing an intercooler and I was able to install it very easily all the parts are outstanding quality and a HUGE overhaul from the stock system and the intercooler it’s self was incredibly constructed with billet inlets and outlets
