We couldn't keep the Type R owners waiting any longer! Here is a sneak peek of our high volume intake system we have been designing over the past several months. We designed this intake following suit with the rest of our product line, offering an upgraded intake with the largest possible intake box without requiring any modification (no cutting or trimming) to the chassis. Similar to the 1.5T Civic platform a "street" and "race" version will be available, but this intake will utilize a shared MAF housing between the two variations. The Street MAF version can be installed without any tuning whatsoever, while the Race version will require a specific calibration for proper performance and driveability. There are provisions within our air box to accommodate a possible secondary air source that we may introduce at a later date.

Currently we have yet to determine pricing, but can assure the community that it will be competitive. We are still sourcing materials and will have a more finalized pricing when pre-orders begin. If everything goes smoothly without much revision we expect this to be on pre-order some time during the spring of 2019.

Keep in mind this is our first design and is subject to change as we move forward.

So the MAF housings are the same on the street and race, but race will require MAF calibration? Confused sorry..

I'm glad we'll be able to reuse the silicone stage 1 piece, assuming the air box will be purchasable separately.

I'd like to see a different approach entirely.
It's a nice enough design to be in the intake business circus though. Plenty of money to be made there :)

Correct, the MAF housings will be the same. Can't give away too much on the race version just yet , but it will be an additional option but use the same parts so upgrading later is easy. With added gains as well! ;)

@PRL Motorsports will placing the maf housing inside the airbox help with iat temps? There is only one company who did this and they claim "big gains" (sarcastic tone)

Would be interesting for someone to do comparative data and dyno runs with the likes of Eventuri, Mish & Injen etc - using the same car, ambient temps n dyno etc..

Injen is not even worth mentioning. Do some search there is enough data out there. To give you a hand look on fb type r groups everything is there.
