Introduction

In this installation guide we have provided step by step instructions to remove the OEM Turbo Inlet Pipe (TIP) and install the 27WON TIP on a 2022 Civic EX. Other 2022+ Civic and Integra 1.5T models will be similar

  • The exhaust piping, turbocharger, and cooling system will be hot after recent vehicle operation. Allow the vehicle to cool or use a fan to cool the exhaust components before working on the vehicle.
