10th gen Civic / CTR (2017+)
Turbochargers from the factory may be new for Honda production cars, but they’ve been a part of the Full-Race product line since our company began in 2002. Full-Race has already begun developing performance parts for the exciting, new, turbocharged 10thGeneration Civic, Si and Type R models. Cool the incoming air charge and make more power with a Full-Race Intercooler Kit or keep the heat in check with an aluminum radiator upgrade! Stay tuned as Full-Race continues to explore the new Civic along with the L15B7 and the K20C1 engines.
The 10th generation Honda Civic came to the market as a 2016 model. Like other automakers, Honda turned to turbocharging to compensate for small displacement, fuel efficient engine designs. In addition to the naturally-aspirated base models, the Civic is now offered with an optional 174 horsepower, turbocharged, 1.5-liter L15B7 engine. Continuing with its trim package offerings, Honda brought back the Si in 2017 equipped with a 205-horsepower version of the L15 engine with a larger turbocharger, a limited-differential, suspension and brake upgrades, and a host of other enhancements to distinguish it from the LX and EX trim packages.
The Type R in America
After chasing MPGs for over a decade and putting performance in the back seat, Honda returned to the realm of high-performance with the 2016 Acura NSX followed by the first Civic to wear the Type R badge on US soil, the 2017 Honda FK8 Civic Type R. Previously, the only Type R to reach America was the DC2 Acura Integra Type R. The shift to more efficient, small displacement, turbocharged engines laid the foundation for the 306 horsepower, K20C1 engine that puts the “Race” in Type R. Honda gave the world a hint of the performance potential of the FK8 at the Nürburgring Nordschleife on April 3, 2017. This preproduction model, loaded with safety equipment and a roll cage, set a new FWD record with a 7:43.80 lap time.
