2017 - 2021 Honda Civic Type R

 

After a few hot and cold cycles, Mishimoto recommends checking the sight tube on the side of the expansion tank to confirm proper coolant level.


There’s no question that the 2017-2021 Honda Civic Type R is built to perform. From gaping grilles, towering spoilers, and bright red splattered on every surface, Honda made it clear that the FK8 is designed for speed. Where we have already improved on other components for speed, we turned to the longevity of the sporty Civic with our Aluminum Expansion Tank.


The Mishimoto 2017-2021 Honda Civic Type R Aluminum Expansion Tank removes the conspicuously beige stock tank from the FK8’s engine bay, replacing it with a sleek all-aluminum design that looks more at home under the hood. With the option of matching the Rallye Red or going with a stealthy black micro-wrinkle finish, there's room to add some personal style.

Where the plastic tank is great for mass production, it’s destined to fail with repeated heating and cooling cycles. Our expansion tank will remove any worries about retaining your coolant, as it can stand up to the Civic Type R's oven of an engine bay. We have incorporated internal baffling within our tank to keep your coolant level during aggressive driving. The Mishimoto Aluminum Expansion Tank also includes a sight glass for quick visibility on fluid levels, and is covered under the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty for a worry-free install.

  • Direct fit for the 2017-2021 Civic Type R
  • 100% aluminum, fully welded construction for maximum durability during repeated temperature transitions
  • Internal baffle keeps coolant near overflow port during aggressive driving, preventing air entry into coolant system
  • Sight glass allows for easy visibility to check coolant fluid level
  • Includes Mishimoto 1.3 Bar (19psi) filler cap and retains ability for use of stock cap
  • Available in micro-wrinkle black and Rallye Red
  • Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty

WESTERN EXPANSION – ALUMINUM EXPANSION TANK R&D – CONCEPT TO COMPLETION

IMG_6337

When most think about the performance of any vehicle, they think of how fast they can make it. Dreams of tunes, intakes, intercoolers, and exhausts are what drift through every enthusiast’s mind when it comes time to start modding. Performance should really come from the car’s ability to keep performing every time you push the start button. Making sure all the components under the hood are doing their job is a good first step.

With all the heat that’s being generated over the CTR’s cooling system we thought we’d take a look at the potential failures. Since we have some plans in place for other cooling enhancements, all eyes are on the FK8’s expansion tank. For one, it’s quite the eyesore under the hood. Once you prop the hood latch, that distinct Rallye Red engine cover is the centerpiece for the Type R’s beating heart. A huge splash of color added by Honda’s engineers to let you know that these four cylinders are something special. That all starts to get a little foggy with the beigest of beige coolant expansion tank taking up residence right next door.

All meticulous R&D starts with cutting something in half. We know what we want the outside of the tank to look like, but we need to make sure of the baffles.
All meticulous R&D starts with cutting something in half. We know what we want the outside of the tank to look like, but we need to make sure of the baffles.

We here at Mishimoto have a plan to make sure the engine bay matches the sporty exterior’s motif and increases the K20’s ability to perform. To start, we’re evicting the tan plastic. It’s no secret that the CTR’s engine bay can be described more as a kiln than an engine bay. The stock tank might not see any issues up front, but the extended exposure to excess heat, especially for those hitting the track fairly often, could start to see degradation and leaking. This hot hatch already has enough cooling issues, just imagine when it’s losing coolant.

One of the first steps in our design process is to create a physical copy of our model as a 3D print. With the proper fitment confirmed, we move on to producing the real thing.

To combat the inevitable decomposition of the OEM reservoir tank, our engineer devised a sleek new containment tank for the hot coolant that can stand up to the test of time and look good doing it. We’ve replaced the plastic construction with a full aluminum shell, complete with internal baffling to keep the coolant from sloshing around.

Just like our catch can bracket and intercooler pipes, we wanted to add another splash of red under the hood of your CTR and will be offering this tank in a matching hue.

For those who want to stay stealthy, wrinkle black will be another option

With any enthusiast focused car, improving on the performance is always on just about every owner’s mind. We already have some of the other “go fast” bits already covered for the CTR, so now we want to make sure that it keeps performing for years to come. Where the FK8 already has the speed thing sorted, we want to make sure that it keeps all its coolant in one place. Plus, it never hurts to look cool while improving durability.

Definitely love it

This definitely a great fit from the look to the performance. Would recommend it for a clean look in the engine bay

Great product

Good quality for money

Only gripe is they are a little longer than i’d want but they work like a charm. No need for heat shields on your spark plugs wires.

Where is it?

I never got that order. My new address is 18 Tides Edge Place, Sacramento, CA 95835

Exactly as described

Exactly what i needed. I'm so glad these guys could explain the difference in the pad material compared to the 3 other places I called. Will be back soon.

Toyo® Proxes R888R DOT Competition Tire

Noisy and not sticky enough when pushed

I have run quite a few Hoosier R7's but wanted the size available in the 888R's for my new BRZ. For one thing, I had forgotten how noisy they are! I could live with that if they performed better on a dry track.
When pushed hard for 20+ minutes they eventually build up enough heat to start getting greasy and losing grip.
For many they will be adequate for track days, but I drive my cars too close to the limit. A better tire for me in the dry has been the Eagle Supercar F1 3R's.

As above

Not a fit

Unfortunately the belt did not fit, it was was too long, my fruend had a 2018 SRT, he had the same problem with his order.
The transaction process was easy, the belt seems like good quality, too bad it didn't fit
