The latest Honda Civic Type R features a lightened and stiffened body structure, a highly tuned engine from the factory, an upgraded braking system, and a six-speed manual transmission. Most enthusiasts would feel this new classic is perfect as Honda intended, but a limited few know there is more untapped potential in the FL5 Type R chassis.
Upgrading your downpipe is a great first step when adding more power to your FL5 Honda Civic Type R.
Research and testing have shown that a downpipe upgrade is one of the most effective modifications to perform when looking to increase efficiency out of Honda's 2.0L turbo engine. The Two Step Performance high efficiency downpipe upgrade promotes optimal airflow with virtually no turbulence throughout the body of the downpipe. This design utilizes 304 stainless steel investment cast ends that have been CNC pocketed for a smooth transition to a 5.00" OD, 400 CPSI GESi G-Sport EPA certified catalytic converter for the middle body. This 5.00" OD catalytic converter was formulated for small displacement direct injection vehicles and offers optimal exhaust flow up to 1,000whp. All components are fully back-purged on site to withstand high exhaust gas temperatures. The wide shape of the cast inlet smoothly blends the turbine outlet and wastegate gases to reduce restriction, while the cast outlet allows smooth taper to aftermarket and/or factory front pipe.
