There is no direct fit part and you’ll need to find a universal part that you can fit, most likely requiring custom brackets, pipe work and some chopping of the front slam panel and bumper.

people have done it, and it’s a relatively common mod on the civic 8th gen which shares the same engine.

Remember changing your intercooler for a larger surface area and introducing longer pipe work travel for the air will lead to pressure drop which then needs to be compensated for in the mapping. You also have to consider whether your IC is being replaced with a single pass vs the stock dual pass.

It’s not a straightforward argument and overall in my experience I would say you’re better off sticking to the existing IC and having the internals reworked by a radiator specialist for better airflow.
