Honda has finally released its supercharger kit for the CR-Z Sport Hybrid, but it won’t come cheap.
Those interested in the power boost, which comes courtesy of Honda Performance Development (HPD), will have to lay down $5,495 not including dealer installation. When equipped with the HPD supercharger kit, power jumps to 197 hp from 130 hp. The kit consists of an air-to air intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, a re-calibrated ECU and a unique air filter.
The supercharger kit is backed by Honda’s 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty as long as it is installed by a dealer.
Alongside the supercharger kit, CR-Z owners can now order from a catalog of HPD street performance components. These consist of a performance exhaust, sport dampers, coil springs with reduced height, larger disk brakes, 18-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and a graphics package that includes spoilers on the front lip and tail along with a rear diffuser and an HPD badge.
