While I cannot feel much of a difference in my car after installing this, I do have more peace of mind knowing I am not heat soaking my turbo. Was the install long? Sure was, but it wasn’t impossible and you don’t even need to jack/ramp up your car for it. Mishimoto has a great video on YouTube that is exactly what I needed to help me see all the steps in installing this. Worth the buy! If it is out of stock, still preorder this so you can know for sure you will be helping your car perform more efficiently.
It’s working perfectly! Love it
I spent 13 hours working today, about 3 of them were spent installing this intercooler and charge pipes. That time should have been cut in half, to be frank with you because the installation is truly quite simple. I highly recommend watching the installation tutorial on Mishimoto's youtube. It helped a bunch. It took me awhile to figure out what I was doing with the piping, but that truly was quite simple as well. A plus is that I did the entire install from the ground so no jack or stands are required if you decide to install this yourself, which I highly recommend for how easy it is.

Keep the charged air temperatures down in your turbocharged Civic with the 2016+ Honda Civic Performance Intercooler Kit 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 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 intercooler. Our direct-fit intercooler kit also gives the stock intercooler piping an overhaul. We ditched the plastic and rubber combination that made up the original equipment and replaced them with mandrel-bent aluminum and 5-layer, fiber-embedded silicone couplers. Our piping also increases the size of both the hot and cold sides of the piping system from 42 mm to 55 mm, equating in a 30% increase in size. We also took the liberty of reducing the angles of the bends in the piping, giving the charged air a more direct and improved flow through the intercooling system.
Our performance intercooler kit adds up to 4 whp and 8 ft-lbs of torque on the stock tuning, 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 a silver or black core with the option of wrinkle black or Rallye Red piping. As with all of our products, the Mishimoto Honda Civic Performance Intercooler Kit also includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.
