Supercharger for Honda CR-Z
Ever since a New York school teacher composed “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” in the winter of 1944, wish lists became one of the holiday season’s most popular attractions. At the very least, the tune prompted individuals of all ages to stop and consider what singular gift would prevail to make their holiday season an undoubted success.
For fans of automotive performance, the varied answers to that prompt can likely be summed up with two simple words: more power. As far as Honda performance is concerned, it now appears that drivers’ Christmas dreams are set to come true with a supercharger for Honda CR-Z courtesy of Honda Performance Development.
Known by the acronym HPD, Honda Performance Development is the automaker’s arm for motorsport engineering. In addition to all the work that HPD does with Honda’s auto racing teams, the branch also develops performance products for Honda’s everyday vehicle line. A brand-new supercharger for Honda CR-Z is certainly the most recent example of HPD’s efforts to pack track-proven performance measurables underneath the hood of popular Honda models.
Featuring an incredible blend of design, performance and fuel economy, CR-Z currently plays the sport hybrid role in the Honda vehicle line. Things are about to get even sportier with HPD’s new supercharger kit, however. Along with equipment that includes an air-to-air intercooler and high-flow fuel injectors, HPD’s supercharger for Honda CR-Z will enhance the coupe’s manual transmission performance specs from 130 horsepower and 140 foot-pounds of torque to 197 and 176, respectively.
Competitively priced at $5,495 plus installation, CR-Z owners are also privy to another treat beyond the supercharger’s 67-horsepower performance bump. Due to the fact that HPD’s supercharger package is an official Honda product, drivers that have the kit installed at a certified Honda service center maintain the vehicle’s 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
Though Christmas is still a few months off in the distance, Chicago drivers interested in a supercharger for their 2013 or 2014 six-speed manual CR-Z models are encouraged to contact Continental Honda in Countryside today.
