HONDA CIVIC FK2 TYPE R
Performance Increase : 18-20hp, 19-22ft-lb
The FK2 Type R intake is the result of extensive dyno testing and flow analysis. By integrating an effective cold air feed, which the stock system lacks and coupling that with our Patent Pending Venturi housing, our intake delivers industry leading results ? consistently. Available in Carbon Fibre and Red Kevlar/Carbon Hybrid.
The Eventuri Difference
The FK2 Eventuri system uses our Patent Pending Carbon fibre Housing which provides an aerodynamically efficient airflow path from the filter to the MAF tube. Not just another cone filter with a heat shield but a unique design which allows airflow to remain laminar and thus improve the turbo efficiency. You can read more about the housing design and how it works here.
The standard airbox draws in air from the engine bay which, once the engine is up to operating temperature will be very warm. Simply placing and open cone filter with any number of heat shielding in the same place will result in exactly the same problem – the system will pull in hot air and result in a loss of obtainable power. Our intake system utilises a cold air feed from the panel under the windscreen allowing the filter to be saturated with ambient air regardless of how hot the engine bay becomes. This coupled with our unique Venturi housing for smooth flow results in an immediate gain across the entire RPM range of 18-20hp. The dyno graph below shows the comparison between the stock airbox and the Eventuri intake system on a standard car with standard map and exhaust. As can be seen, several runs were recorded to show consistency in power gains against the standard system. The testing was done on the same day back-to-back and temperatures were monitored to ensure consistency.
Each component is engineered for a purpose and to a very high standard. Each kit consists of:
- 100% Prepreg Carbon Fibre Intake Housing
- Anodised Aluminium inlet cowling
- High Flow Filter
- CNC Machined MAF tube
- 100% Prepreg Carbon Fibre Cold Air Duct with Water Drain
- OEM Windscreen Panel – Pre-Cut for the Duct
- Laser Cut Stainless Steel Mounting Bracket
- High quality Silicon coupler with OEM specification hose clamps
Carbon Intake Housing Assembly
Made from 100% prepreg carbon fibre of the highest quality, the workmanship on the housing is second to none. This encapsulates the filter and is mated to an anodised aluminum inlet cowl to ensure a smooth inlet flow path. The filter itself is a deep pleated, high flow double cone configuration. The Venturi carbon housing smoothly shapes the airflow down to the MAF tube and ensures laminar conditions to reduce the drag on the turbo and also avoids MAF sensor errors. With the turbo able to draw air with less restriction, the engine is able to make more power.
The filter housing comprises of the high flow filter, aluminium cowl, V-Band clamp, laser cut bracket and the Patented carbon pod itself. The carbon pod shrouds the reverse mounted filter and smoothly shapes the airflow down to the intake tube. This geometry invokes the Venturi effect where the airflow accelerates whilst maintaining laminar conditions. It can be thought of as a large velocity stack – below is a diagram to show the comparison between our patented design and a regular intake system. Our bespoke filters aid the airflow moving through the housings and allow for an even velocity profile as the airflow exits the housings. Further details can be read in the Technology and Filters pages.
Cold Air Duct
Shown here in red Carbon/Kevlar hybrid, the cold air duct has been designed to capture ambient air and funnel it to the filter housing. This is a key component in our system which ensures a direct and continuous feed of cold air to the filter no matter how hot the engine bay gets. The stock airbox and any other intake system without a cold air feed will suffer from heat soak and power loss as the engine bay rises in temperature. A neoprene gasket around the top lip of the duct seals it to the scuttle panel. Furthermore, there is a water drain incorporated at the base of the duct – a pvc tube is connected to this to direct water back out to the road.
Pre-Cut Scuttle Panel
For ease of installation we provide an OEM panel which has been precision cut to ensure a perfect fit for the cold air duct.
MAF Sensor Tube
The MAF tube is CNC machined from aluminium and then anodised. The boss itself is also CNC machined to ensure the sensor sits at exactly the right height in the tube.
The components come together to form our FK2 intake system which releases more power and torque from the engine, gives better throttle response and produces an incredible enhancement in intake sound.
