Back in 2007, Milltek Sport developed their first ever Honda performance exhaust system for the, then brand new, FN2 Civic Type R.
Milltek’s aim was to endow the screaming 2.0 VTEC hot-hatch with a deeper and more powerful soundtrack that differed from the usual aftermarket exhaust options by only releasing its full vocals under hard acceleration – making it a genuinely viable upgrade to any car that’s used every day whether it be commuting to work, getting the weekly shopping or, trying to set new lap times at the Nurburgring. It was this deliberately engineered flexibility that really gained traction with Type-R owners around the World and has taken it to the top of the owners’ “Must Have” list.
For 2015, Honda has seen fit to do away with the normally-aspirated engine and fit a turbocharger. While this has reduced the rev limit from 9000 rpm down to 7000 rpm, it has opened up a whole new level of tuning potential.
The 2015 Civic comes from the factory with 306bhp and peak torque of 400Nm. Milltek Sport is at the forefront of exhaust technology when it comes to extracting more performance and efficiency from turbocharged engines and can’t wait to see what power and torque gains can be leveraged from the new powerplant.
Milltek’s technicians have completed their redesign of the OEM exhaust system, doing away with the various pipe sizes and "pinch points" to create a much smoother and better flowing design. Milltek's development vehicle has been thoroughly tested on the road, race track and dyno to ensure it meets the brand ethos - performance without compromise.
The system featured in this video is the Race cat-back system with Quad GT100 Polished tips.
The system comes in three different configurations to suit a wide range of intended uses: EC-Approved (a requirement for sale in some countries around the World), Road+ and Race.
Road+ and Race systems are visually identical: the main difference between them is a different internal design in the rear silencer assembly. The Race rear silencer offers reduced silencing for a louder sound than the Road+ silencer.
There are three different Tip options available, Polished, Cerakote Black and Titanium.
As with all Milltek systems, quality is the watchword throughout. Aerospace-grade, non-magnetic stainless steel is used for the entire system (including clamps), with hand-finished welds and precision jigged construction. The result is an exhaust that fits as per OEM, but with a longevity and soundtrack that are anything but.
