PRL 2016+ Civic X 1.5T 3" Downpipe / Front Pipe Combo
The wait is finally over, we are now introducing the first full 3" (76mm) downpipe / front pipe assembly on the market.
Testing is showing that a downpipe upgrade is one of the most effective modifications to perform when looking increase power out of Honda's 1.5L turbo engine. We decided to take these findings one step further by upgrading the restrictive factory A-pipe that bottlenecks exhaust flow with a typical downpipe upgrade.
Our downpipe / front pipe assembly is constructed of mandrel bent 16 gauge 304 stainless tubing and 304 stainless 3D CNC'd flanges with smooth transitions for optimal flow and fitment. All pieces are fully back-purged for weld integrity and optimal strength while the front pipe features a high quality, reinforced stainless flex section. Customers can run an aftermarket exhaust or mate our combo to the factory exhaust. Choose between catless or 300 CEL cat. There will not be a way to offer a guarantee that the cat will keep CELs off unless users turn it off via KTuner or Hondata.
All kits will include gaskets, stainless hardware and components needed for a seamless installation.
We tested the catted version on our shop and the results were rather impressive!
