Performance tuning for engine, chassis and body
Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe with HDP
Supercharger power boost of 52% to... 197 hp

AutoPressNews, Carmakers News, 22 Aug. 2014.

Developed by Honda’s North American racing company, a new supercharger kit is now available for the Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe at Honda dealers in the United States.

The new dealer-installed Honda Performance Development (HPD) supercharger kit is part of a full line of street performance accessories for the CR-Z, first revealed at last year's SEMA Show. With the debut of this kit, all of the HPD street performance components for the CR-Z become available at Honda dealers in the USA.

When fitted to the 2013 or 2014 CR-Z, the HPD supercharger kit boosts total powertrain output by 52%, reaching 197 hp (estimated SAE Net horsepower, output will vary by individual vehicle), compared to 130 hp in the 2013 and 2014 CR-Z with manual transmission.

The new HPD supercharger kit includes an air-to-air intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, an ECU calibrated to meet CARB AT-PZEV regulations with 91 octane fuel and the HPD air filter system.

The Honda suggested retail price of the kit is US$5,495, excluding dealer installation, which the Japanese brand describes as "priced similarly to popular aftermarket supercharger kits, but... engineered and backed by Honda".

Hence, the five year/ 60,000 mile Honda limited powertrain warranty remains maintained as far as the HPD supercharger kit is installed by a Honda dealer.

For a higher level of performance, HPD has developed an optional limited slip differential and sport clutch for the supercharger kit, which is available exclusively for CR-Z manual transmission models.

Finally, Honda's CR-Z can get various HPD performance upgrades and accessories, starting from the track-tested powertrain modifications, with the high-efficiency centrifugal supercharger, HPD air-to-air intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, an ECU calibrated to meet CARB AT-PZEV regulations with 91 octane fuel, HPD air filter system and HPD sport exhaust.

Besides, other CR-Z chassis improvements add HPD sport dampers, coil springs with reduced ride height, 300mm diameter disc brakes and HPD 18-inch wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, all completed by a graphics package including front lip and tail spoilers, rear diffuser and HPD badge.
