Anyone who’s driven the Honda CR-Z hybrid knows that it needs a lot more power to earn its “sport hybrid” title. While we wait for Honda to release the next CR-Z, which will hopefully have more grunt under the hood. Honda Performance Development, Honda’s racing arm will now be offering a new range of HPD Street Performance products for Honda’s lineup, starting with the Honda CR-Z.
The 187-hp 2014 HPD Supercharged CR-Z features a variety of track-proven, street-reliable performance upgrades. HPD-developed powertrain modifications include a centrifugal supercharger, HPD air-to-air intercooler, high-flow fuel injectors, an ECU calibrated to meet CART AT-PZEV regulations with 91 octane fuel, HPD air filter system and HPD sport exhaust.
