hey guys, first off let me start with a quick introduction. prl motorsports is a full fabrication shop located in western pennsylvania dedicated to bringing some of the highest quality performance parts to the industry. With our top quality cnc fabrication equipment we are able to produce unique parts to fill the voids that we have found in the market. One of the latest markets we are tackling is the new 2012 and up civic SI. Knowing the potential of the K series from the previous generations of the civic, we picked up a 2012 from the local honda dealer a few months ago. having put some miles on the car to get a feel for it, and coming up with a game plan for what we want to do with our production turbo kit, we started the development phase about a week ago. I figured it was time to start a thread on the car now.
some of the features of the kit will be:
-precision or garret based turbos using the 2.5" vband t31 housing. basically any t3 based turbo from precision or garret will be able to be used with our kit. this includes all of the billet compressor wheel precision turbos, the ball bearing precisions, garrett GT and GTX series turbos.
-fog lights fit
-no need to relocate battery
-fits stock intake manifold
-full 3 inch downpipe that bolts to stock exhaust or aftermarket exhausts
-full 4 inch intake and wastegate dumptube included in our standard kit
anyway, here is some pictures of the progress to date:
here's some pics of the car the day we picked it up at the dealer:
we threw it on our dyno the next day to see what it would do bone stock. not too bad i suppose. driving it though, the rev hang issue is absolutely horrible.
and some video of it as well:
turbo manifold design
intercooler mockup (same intercooler we use on our 06-11 SI kit. uses garret 3" core, cnc machined billet endtanks with internal air dividers to get flow across the entire core)
Turbo manifold "clamshells" machined from 1018 billet using the steedspeed.com patented process (u.s. patent 7096583)
Turbo manifold flanges:
turbo manifold welded:
Oil feed fitting with proper metric threads for block and sensor and NPT for feed line:
Custom 1 piece downpipe we have bent for the 06-11 SI, the 2012 will be very similar:
Precision Billet wheel turbos we'll be using with the kit:
Turbo placement and fitment:
Thats about all i have for today. i'm going to try to keep updating this as best as I can as i have more to show.
