2016-2021 Honda Civic Turbocharger Kit Upgrade (2023)


In modern engines like those found in the 10th generation Honda Civic the turbocharger is the heart and breath of power and performance.

The turbocharger is a sort of bottleneck in the engine in which all air must enter and exit. Therefore, a performance turbocharger is one of the most potent upgrades you can make for your Honda Civic SI or base model. We’ve removed the guesswork, fab work, and pain of a custom turbo kit and created a performance turbocharger that installs and fits like OE, but performs far above.

Check out the video below to see the W1 Performance Turbocharger for the 2016+ Honda Civic REDEFINING THE AFTERMARKET.

A 59% larger compressor wheel is used to increase peak flow and boost capacity. CNC machined from forged aluminum for superior strength, our wheel also features extended tip technology and increased blade height.

Boost pressure capacity of the turbocharger is currently limited to not exceed ~28psi through 6500rpm due to MAP sensor limitations. A larger unit and MAP sensor suggested for those looking to make more then 27psi.

Showing a true drop-in comparison, we see an un-tuned power increase of +18wHP and wTQ carrying strong to redline. Following this, a tune optimized for the W1 Turbo nets a total of +42wHP.

Carrying power to redline was the #1 goal for the W1 turbo without significantly effecting low end torque. With this new power curve, peak torque hits 500rpm later and horsepower carries to redline providing a total 500rpm extra engine RPM past the OE 6500rpm redline.

For stock block cars moving the peak torque higher in the RPM range helps reduce the chance of catastrophic engine failure due to excessive force on the connecting rods and pistons.

Designing the W1 Turbocharger from scratch allowed us to utilize a larger performance CHRA (center housing rotating assembly). This is important because this allows us the use of larger bearings which will handle the increased stress of high boost and the physically larger wheels. Adding a larger turbine shaft along with improving the cooling capacity of the CHRA helps create a performance turbocharger that can make you real power and do so reliably for you Turbo Honda Civic.

27Won W1 is an amazing product and everything advertised. Vlad and 27Won team provide best support.

T. Shimizu 01/28/2022, 07:59 PM

Just like all the other products from 27Won, fit like a glove, high quality product, instructions, and packaging. Was on the fence for a bit, but know I wanted it. Take to Vlad and he gave me additional reassurance and was an easy decision to go ahead with
the W1. Was an easy and quick install and e-tuned immediately after. I feel like the car is safer and stronger now. I have a CVT and like the slightly later spool vs stock, but after it just keeps pulling. Another satisfying purchase from 27Won. Thank you for a great product, I'm definitely a loyal customer from the entire experience.

Ryan 01/07/2022, 09:49 AM

This was easier to install than the TIP Haha!! Sounds amazing and a huge difference in performance from stock.

Casper 07/10/2021, 01:58 PM

I know everyone can write a review and try to get on the Boys of 27Won good side but tbh I’m writing this bcuz genuinely I had the best costumer service on car parts I ever had, reason why is bcuz not they only help me with buying the right turbo for what I want in my car , but also bcuz Vincent took the time to respond each an every single email I send to make sure I get everything done right , saying this also bcuz I run into a mechanical issue while I was installing my turbo but Vincent was there the whole time , that shows a lot about a company and about the type of person he is !!! So this bad boy definitely took my little hatchback to another world ,fun,fast (for me) and no regrets. Thank you so much Vincent and the rest of the 27Won crew ..

Adam G. 07/08/2021, 06:01 AM

Went from the TSP stage 2 on the stock turbo to the W1. Night and day difference in power and response. The stock turbo starts to flatten out on the top end where the W1 just keeps pulling, especially when running between an E20-E30 blend. Install was easy with the provided instructions.

Jeffrey C. 01/16/2021, 01:04 AM

I’m no mechanic, but this turbo install was fairly easy thanks to 27won step by step instructions.

Currently W1 Base map tune (25% ethanol)
And it’s night and day difference! Thanks 27won for the amazing turbo. LTFT on point, AFR on point, and WOT smooth all the way to redline. If you’re thinking about getting a W1 turbo, get it now! I did and I couldn’t be happier.

Thanks 27won

Kyle 04/15/2020, 03:55 PM

Amazing power. Night and day difference.

John Talaoc 04/14/2020, 07:22 AM

Got mine awhile back. Used for about 6 months and had an issue. I was able to send it back and get a rebuild under warranty. I believe anything man made could always have a potential issue. They called me and were super awesome . Fantabulous customer service and even better product! It’s been about 5 months now and I couldn’t be more happy until I buy their other products!
