Dream Automotive De-Cat Downpipe | Honda Civic Type R | FK8 2.0T K20C1 | 2017+
The Dream Automotive Replacement CAT pipe for the Civic FK8 is made from lightweight T304 stainless steel for a longer life and to give the owner a higher flow rate with reduced back pressure to release the engine full capabilities.
The de-cat pipe incorporates a tangential bend turbo outlet ensuring a perfect transition through its 3.5" bend tapered down to 3" exhaust outlet. Hand made to the highest UK Motorport standards, TIG welded, using water cut machined flanges we can promise an OEM fitment.
We can offer two types of heat management,
Hard Lagging is when the insulation material is directly attached to the down pipe.
The process involves the insulation material being wrapped directly around the pipe. A metallic skin is then micro spot welded directly to the pipe to secure and seal the insulation material in place. The metallic skin also acts as part of the thermal barrier by providing additional heat
resistance. hard lagging can withstand temperatures of up to 1200°C
Zircotec ceramic coating offering 30% heat reduction, It is in effect “welded” to the substrate using our proprietary metal bond system; eliminating the need for exhaust wrap; protecting components against corrosion; and continuing to perform and look good. zircotec coating can withstand temps of up to 900°C
PRL High Volume Downpipe Upgrade | Honda Civic Type R | FK8 2.0T K20C1 | 2017+
Research and testing have shown that a downpipe upgrade is one of the most effective modifications to perform when looking to increase efficiency out of Honda's 2.0L turbo engine. The PRL Motorsports High Volume downpipe upgrade promotes optimal airflow with virtually no turbulence throughout the body of the downpipe.
Our design utilizes 304 stainless steel investment cast ends, CNC pocketed for a smooth transition to a 5.00" OD, 400 CPSI GESi G-Sport catalytic converter for the middle body. This 5.00" OD catalytic converter was formulated for small displacement direct injection vehicles and offers optimal exhaust flow. All components are fully back-purged on-site to withstand high exhaust gas temperatures. The wide shape of the cast inlet smoothly blends the turbine outlet and wastegate gases to reduce restriction, while the cast outlet allows smooth taper to aftermarket and/or factory front pipe. All kits will include gaskets, stainless hardware, and components needed for a seamless installation.
Exhaust components that may become damaged over time from being coated, heat wrapped or otherwise insulated in some capacity are not covered under the PRL Motorsport's Manufacturer Warranty. Insulating these components can cause heat to cause degradation of the material faster than would normally occur.
Increased power and exhaust flow throughout the entire powerband
Decreased backpressure & cooler exhaust gas temperatures
No ECU calibration or tune required
Pending EPA approval
Pair with 3" front pipe upgrade for optimal performance
Compatible with factory and/or most aftermarket front pipes - no adaptor necessary.
