Install is fairly simple. Only thing is the MAF sensor that needs to be rerouted and redone. As far as performance, there is no gains since I’m not tuned. However, the swoosh is very cool. Aesthetically, I think the engine bay looks way better with this HVI than with the stock, so that’s a win out of the box. I do recommend this product and even more if you’re tuned or thinking on doing so, there is no doubt you will get the most out of it.
Awesome product! Great customer service, Fast shipping. Couldn't have asked for better service!
The FK8 Civic Type-R High Volume Intake system utilizes a 6" cone filter and billet 2-piece MAF housing with velocity stack(s) to allow maximum airflow while delivering proper fuel trims. The HDPE rotomolded air box utilizes the factory air duct and seal for optimal airflow and heatsoak reduction. Custom molded 4-ply silicone allows for all components to be safely attached without obstructing airflow.
No tune required!

For our first comparison we tested the factory intake system on KTuner's stock equivalent ECU map versus our High Volume Intake System on KTuner's stock equivalent ECU map for an apples-to-apples comparison. Run 2 was the coolest (174 degree starting temp) for both setups. We saw an 11 - 12 horsepower peak gain and 32 horsepower gain throughout the mid-range over the factory intake system.
Continuous dyno pulls and testing under the same conditions produce identical gains time after time. Even our hottest runs, Run 4 (197 degree starting temp), showed a 5 horsepower peak gain and 26 horsepower gain throughout the mid-range over the factory intake system.
Next, we uploaded KTuner's Stage 1 ECU map with the factory intake system and our High Volume Intake System. The coolest runs, Run 2, showed an 8-9 horsepower peak gain and 25 horsepower gain throughout the mid-range.
The hottest runs, Run 5, showed a 9 horsepower peak gain and 18 horsepower gain throughout the mid-range.
One of our main focuses with this intake system was to offer a factory-like fuel trims (much like our 1.5T Cobra CAI & SRI) for optimal drivability and performance. We spent quite a bit of time designing what we determined is the best intake system/MAF housing on the market. Thus far we have seen Short Term Fuel Trims within +2-4% of the factory. We have a few more tricks up our sleeve, but are very happy and confident with what we have currently.
