8th Generation 2006-2011 Honda Civic Sedan FA1 / 2006-2011 Honda Civic Coupe FC1
The FA1 Honda Civic Sedan and FC1 Honda Civic Coupe were radical departures from the conservatively styled 7th generation Civic. The larger 2006–2011 Honda Civic wore futuristic lines, augmented by a new two-tier digital dashboard that looked sort of like a 1980s interpretation of a spaceship cockpit.
Your Honda R18A1 1.8L makes power by pulling in air to use as a catalyst during the combustion cycle. That air must first pass through the OE Honda Civic air filter, which is made out of a thick folded paper. The dirt that it collects, builds up on the surface of the filter, and will eventually reduce airflow to the engine. This is known as 'surface loading', and it prevents your 2006-2011 Honda Civic 1.8L from performing consistently. A K&N 33-2342 replacement air filter on the other hand, is made from a low restriction cotton gauze material that stores dirt deep inside 4-6 layers of oiled cotton fibers. This 'depth loading' design is capable of removing more dirt from the air, without restricting airflow in the process. As a result, up to 50% more air will be able to reach the cylinders, allowing your FA1/FC1 Honda Civic 1.8L to breathe better.
2006-2011 Honda Civic Si Coupe FG2 & 2007-2011 Honda Civic Si Sedan FA5
The Honda Civic Si is wildly popular with the street racing scene, lowrider scene, JDM Honda tuning scene, and gear heads that just want an entertaining daily driver. To meet the demands of its loyal fan base, the 8th generation FG2 Honda Civic Si Coupe and FA5 Honda Civic Si Sedan were given a stiffer suspension, bigger brakes, bigger wheels, sporty styling details, and the new Honda K20Z3 2.0L 4cyl. A sophisticated new version of i-VTEC allows this powerplant to spin up to a dizzying 8,000 rpm redline, while producing a grin-inducing 197-hp. But thanks to K&N's range of Honda Civic Si performance parts, 197-hp might just be the beginning.
That high-revving Honda K20Z3 2.0L needs lots of clean air in order to perform at its peak. Unfortunately, the OE 2006-2011 Honda Civic Si air filter is made from paper, and it can strangle the airflow as dirt builds between the pleats. By contrast, the K&N 33-2343 replacement air filter stores dirt inside a web of cotton fibers, and the special oil treatment actually soaks into the dirt particles, causing them to become sticky and capture other dirt particles. Not only does this provide superior air filtration, but it allows higher airflow. Thanks to its patented 'depth loading' design, this K&N Honda Civic Si performance air filter can increase engine airflow by up to 50% to help your engine breath easier.
9th Generation 2012-2015 Honda Civic Sedan FB2 / 2012-2015 Honda Civic Coupe FG3
In an effort to improve fuel economy, the all-new 9th generation FB Honda Civic was smaller and lighter than its predecessor. Yet it still managed to gain some meaningful room inside the cabin. Power was supplied by a new Honda R18Z1 1.8L that made 140-143 horsepower, and aerodynamic improvements helped increase gas mileage up to 10% over the previous generation. However, Honda began receiving negative feedback shortly after it went on sale in early 2011, due to the car's poor material quality and lackluster execution. In an unprecedented move, Honda actually began reengineering their all-new car just a few months after it went on sale. The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan FB2, 2013 Honda Civic Coupe FG3, 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe FG4 and 2013 Honda Civic Si Sedan FB6, all received numerous upgrades to the cabin materials, exterior styling, and equipment roster. The new-new 2013-2015 Civic was an immediate hit, and Honda was praised for acting on customer feedback so quickly. But no matter which version you own, upgrading its performance is easy with K&N.
A Honda R18Z1 1.8L needs three things to run: air, spark, and fuel. The easiest way to improve the performance of an FB2 Honda Civic Sedan or a FG3 Honda Civic Coupe, is to add more air. Oxygen is a vital component of the combustion process, and the VTEC system is even designed to let more air into the cylinders, which allows the 2012-2015 Honda Civic to create more high-RPM power by burning the fuel more completely. The K&N 33-2468 replacement air filter uses a low restriction cotton gauze filter media to deliver up to 50% more air to the 2012-2015 Honda Civic 1.8L. This K&N replacement air filter is also reusable, and it won't void your factory warranty either.
2012-2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe FG4 & 2012-2015 Honda Civic Si Sedan FB6
Thanks to lots of lightweight structural materials, and 201-205 horsepower from the powerful Honda K24Z7 2.4L, the FG4 Honda Civic Si Coupe and FB6 Honda Civic Si Sedan can perform on-par with pocket-rockets like the Subaru WRX and Volkswagen Golf GTI. But if you actually want to out-perform them, then check out these 2012-2015 Honda Civic Si performance parts from K&N.
Although the initial launch of the FG4 Honda Civic Si Coupe and FB6 Honda Civic Si Sedan was fraught with controversy, nobody complained about the effortless power that came from its Honda K24Z7 2.4L. And now you can add some effortless power of your own, when you replace that restrictive OE 2012-2015 Honda Civic Si air filter with a high-flow K&N 33-2473 replacement air filter. It's made from a low restriction cotton gauze material that allows up to 50% more air to reach the motor.
2016-2017 Honda Civic Sedan 2.0L FC2 & 2016-2017 Honda Civic Coupe 2.0L FC3
Facing stiff competition from cars like the Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Ford Focus, and Chevy Cruze, the wizards in Honda's design department took great care in redesigning the 10th generation FC Honda Civic. To keep up with the prevailing 4-door "coupe" styling trend, they gave the FC2 Honda Civic Sedan and FC3 Honda Civic Coupe a fastback roofline, and pushed the wheels farther out to the corners. This yielded near-midsize interior room, to which they added a suave new interior that was more upscale than ever before. The sexy new 2016-2017 Civic was powered by a standard Honda K20C2 2.0L that used lots of clever engine technology to produce 158-horsepower. But thanks to K&N, that figure can still be improved upon.
The 10th generation FC2 Honda Civic Sedan and FC3 Honda Civic Coupe, are proof that Honda still knows how to build a segment defining car. Even the base Honda K20C2 2.0L is highly regarded for it's seamless blend of smooth power delivery, and fuel-sipping efficiency. But if you want to get a bit more performance from your 2016-2017 Honda Civic 2.0L, then all you have to do is install a K&N 33-5045 replacement air filter. It's made from a patented high-flow cotton gauze filter media that can deliver up to 50% more air. It's also uses a special oil blend to create a sticky web of cotton fibers that can filter out microscopic dirt particles that are smaller in diameter than a human hair. This incredible filtration efficiency can protect your engine far better than an OE 2016-2017 Honda Civic air filter, which is actually made from paper. Plus, a K&N replacement air filter is reusable, and it won't affect your new car warranty either.
2016-2017 Honda Civic Coupe 1.5L Turbo FC3, 2016-2017 Honda Civic Sedan 1.5L Turbo FC1 & 2016-2017 Honda Civic Hatchback 1.5L Turbo FK7
Unlike anything else in its class, the 10th generation FC3 Honda Civic Coupe 1.5L Turbo, FC1 Honda Civic Sedan 1.5L Turbo, and FK7 Honda Civic Hatchback, came with 174-hp from the factory (presumably to club lesser cars over the head with). Choose the 2016-2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport, and your little Honda Turbo will get 180-hp...which will certainly terrify most Hyundai drivers. And naturally, K&N is glad to help you extract even more from that first-ever (in the U.S.) Honda 1.5L Turbo.
Improve The Air You Breathe
The HVAC cabin air filter inside of your 2006–2017 Honda Civic, is intended to keep you from breathing in dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and other allergens. In theory, that OE Honda Civic cabin air filter is a good idea. But there are two problems: First of all, that 'surface loading' OE Honda cabin filter is made from paper, and it doesn't take long for a thick layer of airborne contaminants like dust, pollen, mold, and oder causing bacteria to clog the filter. At this point, you'll be breathing strange odors, allergens, mildew, and whatever else happens to be growing on the surface of the filter. Secondly, most people forget to even change their Honda Civic cabin air filter, which can eventually lead to a foul smelling interior, and worsening allergy symptoms. To help alleviate these problems, you can install a K&N VF2001 cabin air filter. It's made from an electrostatically charged synthetic material, that is designed to catch even microscopic particles of dirt, dust, pollen, mold spores, fungus, mildew, bacteria, germs, and other allergens. The electrostatic charge then causes those contaminants to remain trapped inside a web of synthetic fibers, for up to 12-months/12,000 miles (depending on road conditions). And whenever you need to freshen the air quality inside your Civic, simply remove the reusable K&N cabin filter and clean it with the K&N Cabin Air Filter Refresh Kit.
Since Honda has been using the same HVAC system for many years, the K&N VF2001 cabin air filter will fit:

These premium K&N oil filters offer different oil flow rates and different types of filter media, which are designed to suit specific high performance applications. Each one is far superior to the OE 2006-2017 Honda Civic oil filter, in terms of both oil filtration and flow rate.
The K&N PS-1010 Pro Series oil filter provides a serious protection upgrade over an OE Honda Civic oil filter. It uses a special pleated filter media that can remove far more harmful contaminants than a traditional Honda oil filter, which can extend the life of your engine. The low restriction design also increases the oil flow rate, so more oil can get cleaned, faster.
Designed specifically for high performance and racing applications, the K&N HP-1010 Wrench-off oil filter uses a special resin-impregnated cellulose filter media to capture 99% of oil contaminants. This low restriction material provides a substantially better oil flow rate, which will allow your engine to stay lubricated under extreme conditions. The heavy-duty steel canister has reinforced sidewalls to resist damage from rocks and other road or track debris. For easy removal, a 1-inch hex nut is welded to the top of the canister. And to help you pass inspection at the racetrack, the hex nut has a pre-drilled hole to attach a safety wire. So whether you're looking for a Honda Civic Si performance oil filter, or you just want to protect your Civic on track day. The K&N Wrench Off performance oil filter is designed to give you maximum performance and maximum protection.
If you've spent a lot of money on your Honda R18 / Honda K20 / Honda K24 / Honda L15B engine, then protect it for life with a reusable K&N SS-1010 billet oil filter. It features a dual woven T304 stainless steel micro-screen, which removes far more oil contaminants than a disposable performance oil filter. This low restriction stainless filter element provides a substantial increase to the oil flow rate, and the CNC machined billet 6061 T6 aluminum housing can handle the extremely high oil pressure of a modified engine. So if you want the ultimate performance oil filter: you want a K&N billet oil filter.
