Maybe I’m different but I’m mostly concern with the filter material.

I don’t want K&N filter like performance where people would say it doesn’t filter well.

How is the filter performance? Or will it be able to adapt to amsoil after market air filters?

I too would like to know if there’s any news. I’m waiting for this Intake to come out! Lol.

Here's a first look at our 2-piece billet MAF housing for the FK8 Civic Type-R high volume intake system! This 2-piece design sandwiches the intake air box and locates in correct orientation with the bolt holes. Inside the air box, our MAF housing perfectly locates a 6" ID air filter onto the machined velocity stack for maximum air flow and factory-like fuel trims. Stay tuned for more updates as they come!

Is this the intake that will bolt up to the turbo kit you guys will release in the future for the Type R?

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.

@PRL Motorsports maybe just my preference but can you try and no put a logo on every piece for the intake? For this system I would like it to look clean with not excessive branding all over it. The PRL logo on the billet housing is nice and subtle and also think logo looks good on the actual airbox from the rendering. However with the logo on the box can you have a plain black hose with no logo? Please?

That would kind of defeat the purpose of our brand logo on our products. You can certainly attempt to cover the logo on your own if you'd like :)

A little update on our intake and two-piece billet MAF housing. Check out those seamless transitions from MAF housing to silicone! Incorporated a "bead roll" and stopper lip for proper installation and fitment of the filter. We plan to test fit (with the airbox !!) and put the car on the dyno Monday once it returns from a road trip to Canada!

I may have missed this in this thread but what is the projected price for this intake?
