Definitely recommend getting a intercooler before buying ktuner. Temperatures are lower than stock. No more heat soak = more pulls without losing power. Easy install.
I had to go with Mishimoto for the fact that the intercooler is all black, there's is the only one I found like that. A bonus is that the Mishimoto M is not visible as a result. I don't like my car being branded by aftermarket logos lol.
Install was easy and only took about 3 hours including taking off the front bumper. Works fantastic, especially on the track. No heat soak at all.

With stock intercooler, iat1 and iat2 were about the same temp during highway. City driving drives iat2 up to 135. Oof.
After mishimoto, iat2 is consistently lower even in city driving. Happy customer of mishimoto

Keep the charged air temperatures down in your turbocharged Civic with the 2016+ Honda Civic Performance Intercooler from Mishimoto! In the age of the turbocharger, Honda has finally joined the ranks of forced induction by equipping their tenth generation of the Civic with the L15B7. Where the Earth Dreams technology might be advanced, it still suffers from an age-old enemy – heat.
The stock intercooler utilizes a tube-and-fin construction coupled with plastic end tanks, giving high temperatures a perfect breeding ground. Our intercooler is designed with the Honda enthusiast in mind and eliminates high charged air temperatures that set up shop in the stock intercooler. The all-aluminum, bar-and-plate construction is specifically designed to shrug off heat generated by compressing air into the intake manifold. Our intercooler also has increased the volume by 102% and fin surface area by 97%, which helps drop outlet air temperatures by 20°F over the stock intercooler, and up to 42°F once a performance tune is added.
The benefits of our upgraded design don’t stop with the temperature drop. Our direct-fit intercooler adds up to 4 whp and 8 ft-lbs of torque when combined with the 2016+ Honda Civic Performance Intercooler Piping, with the potential to boost that power gain to 11 whp and 9 ft-lbs of torque with a tune. The Mishimoto 2016+ Honda Civic Performance Intercooler is available in silver or black and includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.
