Honda Civic Type R Replacement panel filter
There were a few cars that were more talked about than the brand new Honda Civic Type R in 2015, so it is not surprising to see filtration experts Pipercross have been busy creating a high performance panel filter to help the Type R engine breath better.
This new, OEM-sized filter for these newer models fits as a direct swap, offering huge improvements in flow, balanced with significantly longer life and greater engine protection.

Warranty friendly upgrade
With the Civic Type R being fresh from the Honda showroom, its no surprise that owners are looking for a way to safely tune their car without having to worry about the warranty. The Pipercross replacement panel filter uses the factory airbox but can still boast of a 30% increase in air flow over standard OEM style filters. Manufactured using Pipercross’s lightly oiled triple layer foam, this design helps filter down to a far finer rate, thus protecting the Honda’s engine against damage.
This technology costs less than you would think, the Pipercross replacement panel filter costs a measly £37.99 inc vat. What is great about this is that not only is it easily washable it comes with a comprehensive lifetime warranty.
Combines performance with protection
Although designed with performance and longevity in mind, a useful by-product of this optimised induction is that, in most cases, fuel efficiency is often marginally improved too, which is no bad thing, with what we know the Honda Civic Type R is capable of i can see it will be driven conservatively .
The Pipercross panel filter provides a very subtle improvement in induction noise combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running any of these models. If you decide that you wanted to go for a full intake to maximize performance i can tell you that the Pipercross guys are currently developing an Intake for the Type R so keep your eyes peeled.
