Optimal cooling is imperative for performance and reliability, especially for turbocharged applications. Skunk2’s complete Intercooler Kit for the 2016 to 2021 Honda Civic 1.5T engine delivers a bolt-on solution that reduces intake air temperatures to maximize your engines performance.
Honda’s OEM intercooler system is inadequate to sustain low air temperatures under aggressive driving situations. Plastic intercooler end caps and smaller, plastic tubing with rubber couplers come factory which quickly get drenched in heat and are slow to dissipate. Excessively high intake air temperatures result in huge power drops and poor performance with increased risk of detonation. When power is raised, the issue becomes even more prevalent.
Our 3.5-inch, 100% aluminum intercooler is 30% larger than stock, flowing a higher volume of air and acting better as a heat sink to reduce intake air temperatures versus the stock 2.5-inch intercooler. The included 2.25-inch aluminum tubing further increases air flow and aids in temperature reduction due to better heat dissipation versus the stock plastic.
