As many of you have seen, we began testing a potential drop-in turbocharger upgrade for the FK8 Honda Civic Type-R in July of 2019. We managed to produce 460+ horsepower and 430+ ft/lbs torque on stock engine and produced close to 500 horsepower with third party testing with our first prototype turbocharger. Though we were satisfied with the results of this particular turbocharger, we still felt that we could design and produce an even better performing upgrade for the community. Here is what we’ve come up with over the past few months:

The PRL Motorsports P600 Drop-In Turbocharger Upgrade for the 2.0L Turbo FK8 Civic Type-R platform (which can also be installed on the 2.0L Turbo Honda Accord and Acura RDX) will utilize a billet 304 stainless steel, dual ceramic ball bearing CHRA for reduced weight and improved durability. This turbocharger retains factory oil and coolant lines, as well as the factory bypass valve and wastegate actuator. Our new CHRA is also designed to increase cooling capacity with its larger water jacket.

For reference, here is a comparison between the factory Mitsubishi TD04-T/C, our prototype turbocharger, and our P600 turbocharger:

Our High Efficiency compressor wheel is significantly taller than most billet compressor wheel upgrades and features the latest technology in aerodynamics (tapered tip exducer, cutback design on blade top edge) for optimal spool and power. This High Efficiency Turbine Wheel also features the latest technology in aerodynamics for optimal spool and power.

The P600 Drop-In Turbocharger Upgrade will be capable of delivering up to 600 wheel horsepower and we also expect similar spool as our prototype unit despite being larger, which was near factory to begin with.

Stay tuned as we continue to post updates as they come, and test results once we have a production sample. Pricing is to be determined, but current ETA is the summer of 2020!

Even though it may seem like the world is ending, production on our P600 Turbocharger Upgrade for the 2017+ Honda Civic Type-R 2.0T (2018+ Accord and 2019+ RDX) has not stopped. Here are a few more pictures of one of our production-quality, prototype units that we will be testing within the next few weeks once the stainless steel turbine housings arrive.

Nope, not quite yet. We will be sure to post updates once known/ready.
I usually get your products right when you announce them. Same will more than likely happen with this turbo. I'm just curious of the size of the casting compared to stock, or if you have picture comparisons.

If you are referencing the turbine sizes the differences are listed below. This information is pulled from our product description.

I was meaning the housing I guess. Was wondering if the size was significant enough where I couldn't use the stock heat shield. That's all.

I personally can’t wait for this. I’m ready to preorder as soon as you are @PRL Motorsports I will pay in full now if u could let me know what other upgrades you recommend now to be ready to drop this in. Will it include everything needed or will additional cooling or fuel upgrades available now I should add to be ready for the install? I will be having the install done at one of your PRL Honda dealerships. I currently am running the high flow PRL intake and the Borla catback exhaust with K Tuner. I won’t be tracking my car hard, 99% street fun. I have plenty of great rural roads and access to a private test track to drive on, but I have never driven the car to the point where I’ve experienced heat issues. Any preparation upgrades you could possibly share would be greatly appreciated.

We're creeping up on having this available for presale! Keep a close eye on our social media and website. This turbo will be a direct drop in and include everything you will need. Supplemental fueling options will be complimenting to this turbo and allow you to push even further.
