Article by Christian Andrei, on August 22, 2014

At last, the Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe can be fitted with a supercharger kit developed by Honda Performance Development (HPD). Available at Honda dealers across the United States, the supercharger kit can be installed on the 2013MY and 2014MY CR-Z and boosts the total output from 130 hp to 197 hp.

Also, the kit will be offered exclusively for CR-Z models equipped with a manual transmission. According to the official press release, the kit includes an HPD air-to-air intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, an ECU calibrated to meet CARB AT-PZEV regulations with 91 octane fuel and an HPD air filter system.

The suggested retail price of the HPD supercharger kit is $5,495 but this doesn’t include the dealer installation. Honda will continue to offer the 5 year / 60,000 mile limited powertrain warranty.

In addition, the CR-Z is available with optional HPD-developed limited slip differential as well as a sport clutch. Moreover, Honda offers chassis improvements such as HPD sport dampers, coil springs, 300 mm diameter disc brakes and 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

An optional graphics package is available too, as well as front lip and rear roof spoilers, rear diffuser and HPD badge.

CR-Z Sport Hybrid Gets Supercharged with HPD Street Performance

Supercharged performance for the street is now available in the Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe through a new dealer-installed Honda Performance Development (HPD) supercharger kit. Best known as Honda's North American racing company, HPD developed a full line of street performance accessories for the CR-Z and first revealed them at the 2013 SEMA Show. With the debut of the supercharger kit this month, all of the HPD street performance components for the CR-Z are now available at Honda dealers in the United States.

Available for the 2013 and 2014 CR-Z, the HPD supercharger kit boosts total powertrain output to 197 hp1 (vs. 130 hp in the stock 2013 and 2014 CR-Z with manual transmission) and includes the HPD 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. Honda's Suggested Retail Price of the kit is $5,495, not including dealer installation, which is priced similarly to popular aftermarket supercharger kits but is engineered and backed by Honda.

The HPD supercharger kit maintains the balance of customer's 5 year/ 60,000 mile Honda limited powertrain warranty when installed by a Honda dealer. The HPD supercharger kit is available exclusively for CR-Z manual transmission models and HPD has developed an optional limited slip differential and HPD sport clutch for those customers looking for an even higher level of performance.

When equipped with available HPD street performance accessories, the CR-Z (automobiles.honda.com/cr-z/hpd.aspx) can feature a variety of track-proven, street-reliable performance upgrades. HPD-developed powertrain modifications – tested on-track – include a 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. Chassis improvements include 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. The CR-Z is completed by a graphics package including front lip and tail spoilers, rear diffuser and HPD badge.
