Vehicle Application: 2017+ Civic Type R (FK8)
PRL began testing a potential drop-in turbocharger upgrade for the FK8 Honda Civic Type-R in July of 2019. They managed to produce 460+ horsepower and 430+ ft/lbs torque on stock engine and produced close to 500 horsepower with third party testing with their first prototype turbocharger. Though they were satisfied with the results of this particular turbocharger, they still saw room for improvements in their design to produce an even better performing upgrade for the community.
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. PRL's new CHRA is also designed to increase cooling capacity with its larger water jacket.
PRL's 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 they also expect similar spool as their prototype unit despite being larger, which was near factory to begin with.
