Ever since the
launch of CIVIC TYPE R FK8, we have been focusing on the K20C turbo engine
potential. The ECU analysis has been done and settings changed multiple times
with the goal of further improving engine performance.
the ECU settings, while of course ensuring the safety margin, for boost,
ignition timing and fuel adjustment, has improved the output by about 40ps
compared to stock. The further need to improve the middle to low speed range
torque and high-speed output has led us to developing this high-capacity
is using the latest highly efficient MHI turbo that supplies genuine FK8 one.
The latest CFD analysis technology helped optimizing the compressor shape and
turbine blades. Along with the increased diameter it resulted in higher output
without sacrificing the medium to low-speed torque.
Additionally, the same housing with the genuine turbine allows you to make the
replacement easy and fast (bolt-on).
The shape of the compressor and the number of blades have been optimized, high flow rate and high boost achieved by increasing the genuine 58Φ diameter to 65Φ.
The blade shape and the number of turbine wheels have also been enhanced and diameter modified from 47Φ to 52Φ. The suppressed moment of inertia and increased capacity reduced exhaust pressure and improved the response.

Caution! High-capacity clutch required. Since sufficient fuel supply is difficult to reach with normal fuel system,
Hondata Fuel System install is required to provide the increased output
(injector, increased fuel capacity and software upgrade included. Fuel supply
amount increased by 24% compared to stock).
Turbo vehicles would typically have POD
type air cleaners, however here at SPOON we decided to develop the cleaner with
the genuine airbox. Designed to enhance drivability with its high filling
Same with earlier released ones for CIVIC
FK7 and S660, this filter is also made with polyester fiber. Unlike cotton,
this material provides better dust removal and secures the high-level intake.

The graph above demonstrates how just
changing the filter helped improving the torque and power specifically in the
medium to high-speed range.
Having just installed the air cleaner with
the current ECU settings resulted in significantly better air flow and overall
improvement of torque, power and pick up.
The filter is easy clean and does not
require the filter oil or detergent. Just simply blow the dust off with an air
※Use mild detergent with water and air dry,
if dust cannot be removed with air.
