Introduction

In this installation guide we have provided step by step instructions to install the 27WON Performance Kuro Turbo for Civic Type R

Advisory:

  • The engine bay will be hot after recent vehicle operation. Allow the vehicle to cool or use a fan to cool the engine bay before working on the vehicle.
  1. First and foremost; THANK YOU for becoming a part of the 27WON Family.  We hope to REDEFINE your experience of the aftermarket with the highest level Parts, Customer Service, Packaging, & Support

  79. A vehicle equipped with a larger performance turbocharger may require a change in the way it is driven.  A properly tuned vehicle with a larger turbocharger definitely will
    • A vehicle equipped with a larger performance turbocharger may require a change in the way it is driven. A properly tuned vehicle with a larger turbocharger definitely will

    • A properly tuned vehicle with a larger turbocharger will experience peak torque later in the RPM range. This may make the vehicle feel more sluggish in the the lower RPM range, approximately sub 3000rpm. However, peak power will also move higher in the RPM range and carry to redline

    • We recommend shifting at a higher RPM (~300rpm higher) to combat this feeling

    • A larger performance turbocharger will also create more pronounced turbo induction noises, your gas mileage may drop significantly for the first few tanks from you constantly wanting to hear the turbo spool

  80. This completes the installation of your 27WON Performance FK8 Kuro Turbo
