PRL Motorsports Cobra 2016+ Honda Civic 1.5T Intake System


Product Description

PRL Motorsports "Cobra" 2016+ Honda Civic 1.5T Intake system | 10th Gen Civic Turbo (SI & Non-SI)

The PRL Cobra Cold Air intake system for the 16-19 Honda Civic 1.5T Turbo (Both SI & Non-Si Models). This performance intake system is specially designed to extract maximum horsepower from your 10th gen Honda Civic 1.5L Turbo motor and is tailored to each vehicle both SI and Non-Si Models. The system starts with a composite plastic intake pipe that if turned to a certain angle does resemble a cobra snake, thus the name, Cobra Cold-Air System. This well designed portion of intake allows for clearance and air flow to be at maximum without hampering its oem fitment. The plastic moulding then is fed to the black silicone piping and everything is built to direct the air flow as smoothly as possible to reduce all air restriction and allow for maximum horsepower production throughout the rev range.

3D scanning has allowed us to replicate the factory MAF housing out of CNC'd billet aluminum for optimal driveability and performance. This cold air intake system is constructed of a 4" volume into the MAF Housing. Our kit is available with two MAF housing choices; a stock-sized Street MAF  and a 50% larger Race MAF housing. The larger volume of airflow reduces pumping loss as well as creates an unrestricted air path to feed the MAF housing with ambient temperature air.
Extensive testing shows that our attempt to replicate Honda's factory MAF housing worked extremely well; we couldn't be any happier! The beauty of this intake system is that customers can upgrade to our larger Race MAF housing to make more power in the future without having to buy a completely new intake system.


The Race maf is a 50% larger maf coupler that allows more air flow, due to this increase in air flow a tuning device such as Flashpro or K-Tuner is required to help program the ecu to allow it to read properly.
If you are looking to not use a tuning system then the street maf will be what you need, with a slight sacrifice in overall power. However down the road you can purchase the RACE Maf and just replace the part and attain maximum horsepower.
The difference is 3hp and 5lb of torque between the RACE maf over to the street maf.
Otherwise the Street maf is fully able to be bolt-on without a tune and you still can make great horsepower gains.

Kit Includes:

  • (1) Billet Aluminum MAF Housing (Anodized Black)
  • (1) PRL Motorsports High Flow Air Filter
  • (1) 4-Ply Upper Silicone Intake Hose (Race or Street)
  • (1) 6-Ply Lower Silicone Intake Hose
  • (1) High Density Polyethylene Lower Intake Tube
  • (4) 304 Stainless Steel Worm Clamps
  • (2) Stainless Steel Mounting Brackets
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
"This intake is both configurable for street and race applications and comes with 2 maf housings to do so. The street housing should require no changes to afm calibration, however the race will need further adjustments to work properly. Current state of the vehicle was stock aside from the addition of a Hondata Flash Pro, GM Flex Fuel Sensor, and a reflashed ecu running our OTS +6psi Ethanol basemap.

    Just purchased race maf, since I already have hondata. Wow what can I say I grin from ear to ear now hearing this beautiful intake. Easy installation took only about 2 and a half hours to complete.

    Installed this on my 2019 Civic Si, with the race maf for extra horsepower since I have hondata. This thing is just amazing build quality and power. Installed and uploaded the base map and boom off I went with a ton more power.

    Sounds great too. Didnt mind waiting on this intake either. Well worth it!
