Performance Increase : 14-20hp, 22-29ft-lb
V-Box Acceleration : 60-130mph Reduced By 1.2 Seconds
The Honda FK8 Type R intake is the result of extensive design iteration through dyno testing and flow analysis. It was developed to achieve two objectives – 1) Maintain low inlet temperatures. 2) De-restrict the turbo inlet path. The first objective was met by enclosing the filter inside a carbon airbox and using the stock seal against the hood to block out the heat soak from the engine. Since the intake sits directly behind the radiator it is crucial that the filter is not exposed which would result in a loss of power through high IAT. The second objective was met by removing the flexible tubing and optimising the inlet path with a Venturi stack connected directly to the filter. Furthermore, we added a second inlet to the airbox with a scoop pulling in air from the inner wing area. This almost doubles the total cross sectional area through which the turbo can draw from as compared with the single entry on the stock system. Our carbon airbox enclosure has been designed to maximise the use of the available volume and block all sources of heat. The resulting performance gains and aesthetics are industry leading for the FK8 Type R.

We also carried out road testing using a Vbox unit to record the acceleration from 60-130mph (also 100-200Km/h). Testing was conducted on the same stretch of road - again on the same day to keep variables minimum. Results show that with just the intake added, the acceleration times from 60-130mph and also 100-200Km/h reduced by approximately 1.2 seconds which is a significant change at such speeds.
Acceleration results summary:
- 60-130mph with Stock intake = 15.45 seconds
- 60-130mph with Eventuri intake = 14.27 seconds
- 100-200Km/h with Stock intake = 13.04 seconds
- 100-200Km/h with Eventuri intake = 12.17 seconds
