Peace of mind running tune

Running the TSP stage 1 tune I and wanted the intercooler to provide some peace of mind. In my opinion this is the most important upgrade with the tune. I opted to swap out just the intercooler and not the piping. The install was fairly straight forward but attaching the stock piping to the adapters and intercooler was a little confusing. Have not recorded data so I can't quantify but car feels like it opens up more.

Exactly what I expected from TSP

I got exactly what I expected to get from TSP, and the intercooler itself impresses me. Faster turbo spool, more noise, colder air, everything you could ask for.


Best intercooler

Well made

I have installed alot of parts, from 1000hp import builds to uncommon motor swaps.
This intercooler and piping kit from PRL is well made, pipe co struction is sturdy, well shaped and offered no issues during the install. All material was provided, gaskets, clamps, brackets, and the all bolts required. 10/10 would buy again.
If I had to mention a downside, the shaped bracket holding the charge pipe right before the throttle body pushes the pipe into the stock air box. It could be noted in the purchasing screen that this piping kit best suits a cold air / ram air intake.
Having the ktuner, I was able to monitor it's before and after, there was a consistent noticable difference with cooling. Seeing the data yourself goes a long way to backing up all the claims.

Great intercooler

Keeping the temps down as it should.

Looks Great, works better

Top Quality

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+) 25.6x4x6.3” 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.
