Honda tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Honda cars for Honda tuning enthusiasts.
If there was one thing tuning enthusiasts could improve for the Honda CR-Z it would definitely be the power output. Ever since the sporty hatchback was released, we have seen styling and aerodynamic parts galore, but a lack of performance options have us scratching our head. With the exception of a few limited models developed by Mugen for advertising purposes, Honda could help out the tuners who have been faithful to the car brand.
Mugen has already announced an upcoming body kit for the Honda N-ONE that just hit the market. This tiny car holds a three-cylinder 660cc gas engine that isn’t suitable for performance upgrades, so styling companies like Mugen are going to do their best to improve the appearance. They are designing two different kits made up of new bumpers with LED lights, front grilles, side skirts and rear enhancements. Additional modifications include new alloy wheels, suspension tweaks and customization’s to the interior such as new colored door panels, press start button, racing pedals and new floor mats.
Honda is one of the largest auto-mobile manufacturers in the world, and has been since the 1960s with the company now famous for the cars it produces as well as the motorcycles which were originally the focus of its production. One of the most popular models of Honda’s cars is the Civic, and the success of this model is reflected in the fact that Honda has been producing upgraded versions of it for several years running now – each of which is designed to offer improved specifications compared with the previous version, if you want to see any of the models visit motors.co.uk. So what are the specifications for the most recent version of the Honda Civic?
While the all new Honda Crosstour hasn’t appealed to the mainstream market, we have a feeling it could be a hit in the tuning industry. The wheel specialists at Vossen have stepped in to add their touch of styling with a new aero kit, suspension modifications and of course some signature rims. Completing the all-white look are Vossen 20-inch CV3 five spoke wheels wrapped in high performance tires.
It’s been over 10 years since the Honda S2000 came into production and car enthusiasts worldwide had to get their hands on one. Honda has sold over 112,000 of the unique sports car that was originally a concept model called the SSM (Sport Study Model) back in 1995 at the Tokyo Motor Show. The RWD Honda roadster packed a punch with the 2.0-liter four cylinder DOHC VTEC that many fell in love with. There have been rumors of a replacement for the Honda S2000, so a design student named Michael Mcgee came up with this interesting concept for the year 2020.
Check out this Honda S2000 wheelie at the TX2K12 drag racing event in Texas this past weekend. It’s amazing how much power these tuners are able to pack into the small Honda S2000 sports car. Just because you can fit a 2JZGTE in the engine bay, doesn’t mean the car can handle it. If only they could make the Honda S2000 AWD, then it might have been able to take the Toyota Supra off the line.
Acura finally made an announcement at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show of the new Acura NSX set to be produced by Honda R&D America. This means the supercar will be constructed at the plant located in central Ohio, and US citizens will get a first hand look of the finished product in the next couple years. They say this Acura NSX will go on sale within three years, giving it an approximate arrival of 2015. What they didn’t tell us until the unveiling is that is looks VERY similar to the Audi R8.
Fox Marketing has released pictures of their take on the Honda Civic Si prior to the SEMA Show next week. It will be displayed at the automotive aftermarket super show, featuring plenty of upgrades to go around.

After the Honda tuning was completed, the Honda Civic Si now puts down 450 horsepower, which Fox Marketing claims will be good for over 100,000 miles.
Check out this black and yellow Honda Civic sporting some Bugatti Veyron styling in a parking lot. For this 1992-1995 model it looks as if the only major modification was the front bumper, side skirts, and custom rear quarter panels. Headlights look to be aftermarket but still have the same factory shape to them.
Fox Marketing has announced a brand new tuning kit for the 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe that is said to be in the range of 500 horsepower. It will feature a turbocharged engine, upgraded chassis to handle all this power, and several exterior styling mods.
