Airtec Motorsport Front Mount Intercooler | Honda Civic Type R | FK8 2.0T K20C1 | 2017+
As part of their expanding Honda Civic FK8 Type R product range, AIRTEC Motorsport are proud to launch an intercooler upgrade suitable for track or fast road use.
In order to ensure there is no noticeable loss in performance during extended periods of hard-driving, they have developed a larger, freer-flowing intercooler that is a direct replacement for the smaller and more restrictive OEM item.
Their solution to increasing the intercooler’s size and performance within the confines of the limited space behind the bumper is based upon a wide and short core with a huge 125mm depth. This offers a massive 140% increase in overall capacity in comparison to the original intercooler, as well as a significant increase in frontal area over standard, which allows it to make the most of the air flow provided.
The inlet side of the intercooler increases from 50mm diameter to 63mm, whilst the outlet increases from 55mm to 70mm to further improve flow. The original oval boost hose connectors with O-ring seals have also been re-designed to feature simpler and less restrictive silicone connectors.
Together with high-flow, moulded one-piece cast end tanks and an internal air diverter to ensure flow is directed correctly and efficiently, the AIRTEC Motorsport intercooler offers much greater efficiency and volume over standard.
Following an extensive development process, this intercooler has been tried, tested and logged on the road and race track. This comprehensive testing highlighted the intercooler’s improved design to cater to long periods of hard use, as seen by the inlet temperature’s consistently low results and improved recovery times in comparison to the OEM intercooler.
