The 2017-2021 Honda Civic Type R finds itself in the gray area of track fiend and commuter car, some sacrifices had to be made. One of those sacrifices comes in the form of the underperforming intercooling system. Under intense driving conditions or just being caught on a hot summer day, the stock tube-and-fin intercooler soaks with heat, quelling the performance of your Civic Type-R.


The 4.7-inch thick core boasts a 169% increase in overall volume and bumps the external fin surface area by 189% for optimal heat rejection properties. The robust design offers not only improved flow characteristics but also aids in transferring heat away from the charged air. The plastic end tanks are a thing of the past and have been replaced with Mishimoto's sleek cast aluminum designs to more effectively direct airflow to and from the piping.


With the Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Kit, the intercooler isn't the only component that received an update. Honda carried some of those sacrifices in the name of mass production over to the intercooler piping as well. The restrictive piping diameters limit the K20C1's potential to turn up the boost with tunes, and the rubber sections are destined to deteriorate down the line. Mishimoto updated these charged air channels with a 2.5" mandrel-bent aluminum cold-side pipe. The rubber sections, including the hot-side pipe, were swapped for 5 layers of heat-resistant silicone. Both characteristics will increase the airflow through the system and make sure you never experience a boost leak.


The Mishimoto 2017-2021 Honda Civic Type R Performance Intercooler Kit comes with either a black or silver intercooler, with the option of wrinkle black or wrinkle red piping to match your style and, as with every Mishimoto Intercooler, this intercooler includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty so you can have peace of mind!!
