There is a stencil included if you would like to paint yours. The HKS Racing R-Type Intercooler Kit is designed for circuit use; ideal to use with a stock replacement type turbine to large size turbine.
This intercooler derives better turbine performance regardless the engine rpm during driving on a straight track and acceleration after cornering. Cooling Efficiency Improvement = Increased Power.
This is the best layout with the best core size designed for the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 Honda Civic Type-R Hatchback FK8. Minor modification of the fan shroud and rubber part that comes in contact with the core is required.The installation does not require any serious modification. Only a rubber part that comes in contact with the intercooler requires minor modification. The total installation time is approximately 4 hours.
Newly designed 100mm wide core is approximately 200% of the stock in the core capacity! This large core shows overwhelming cooling performance difference. Core Size Comparison Versus Stock. HKS: 695mm x 178mm x 100mm.Stock: 680mm x 143mm x 64mm. Even with stock boost levels of the K20C1 FK8 CTR, the engine intake air temperature rises to nearly 90 degrees Celsius. The HKS intercooler is using a larger size intercooler to maintain cooling performance. The stock intercooler piping layout has a sharp bend so the intake air does not flow smoothly and causes the boost pressure loss. The HKS intercooler integrates the inlet side tank of the intercooler and pipe to realize a smooth air flow and reduce air intake loss. The cooling efficiency of an intercooler is affected by many factors including the frontal surface area of the core, cooling fin design and air flow through and over the core.
HKS has increased the size of the core over stock to increase the air flow over the core. New type cooling fin now offers improved heat radiation. Core end tanks have been designed to flow the compressed air evenly across the whole intercooler core.All these factors will maximize reduction of intake air temperature which increases air density. Increasing the range of fueling and ignition setting making it possible to deliver more power and torque.
Along with cooling efficiency, pressure loss reduction is one of the most important aspects of intercooler performance. If the pressure drop is significantly high, throttle response and the torque is reduced. However, reducing the pressure loss and improving the cooling efficiency are contradictory, and the lower the pressure loss, the worse the cooling efficiency becomes. A large cause of pressure drop is the cross sectional area of the tubes in which the air flows and inner fin layout and shape.
HKS has emphasized cooling efficiency yet achieved a low resistance design with thin fins. Tube design has been also considered in many possibilities and increasing the cross sectional area. With these measures in place, high levels of cooling efficiency have been achieved without sacrificing pressure drop. For Honda Civic Type R FK8 performance parts!
