After performing extensive R&D on our 2017+ Civic Type R, our team decided to create an intake system to provide maximum airflow to support bolt-on modifications, alternate fuel use, and aggressive ECU tuning. Mishimoto’s Race Intake System is the ultimate air intake upgrade and includes our aluminum turbocharger inlet tube, oversized MAF housing, precision-designed airbox, and a high-flow serviceable air filter. Our inlet tube is constructed with a robust CNC-machined cast-aluminum turbo compressor inlet connection flange. This mating surface is designed to OEM specifications, providing a perfect bolt-on fit. The upper portion of the tube is fabricated from mandrel-bent aluminum piping, which is professionally TIG welded to the cast lower. The inlet tube mates to our 4” rotational-molded MAF housing via a durable 4-ply silicone coupler. This MAF housing includes mounting flanges for the MAF sensor as well as the EVAP hose flange. The most significant component for this complete intake system is our precision rotational-molded airbox. By using high-strength cross-linked polyethylene, we were able to develop an extremely efficient design providing fantastic airflow and resistance to engine bay heat-soak. Rounding out the airflow path is our high-flow oiled air filter, providing massive air entry surface area and filtration. Using the latest in 3D printing, CAD modeling, and flow bench technology, we created an optimal airflow pathway from the turbocharger to the intake airbox, resulting in a measured 33.7% improvement in intake airflow. We offer the option of either a red or black powder-coated finish, providing an excellent aesthetic upgrade for your engine bay. As with all our products, this Race Intake Kit for the 2017+ Honda Civic Type R includes our signature Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.
