HPD Supercharged Honda CR-Z

Thursday, December 6th, 2012:

If there was one thing tuning enthusiasts could improve for the Honda CR-Z it would definitely be the power output.

Honda CR-Z with K20 VTEC Swap

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010:

Most owners of the CR-Z and future Honda hybrid buyers will notice the cars lack of power while driving.
