Jackson Racing Supercharged Honda CR-Z Reviewed
 
http://www.autoguide.com/gallery/adm...2/blowncrz.png

Jackson Racing's Rotex supercharger kit for the Honda CR-Z has been out for a while now, but the guys at Honda Tuning Magazine just got their hands on the development vehicle used for the project. While the review of the tuned hybrid is short, it does make one thing very clear; this supercharged CR-Z is a much more realistic option that an K-Series engine swapped CR-Z.

This beautiful red car was built by the father and son team of Oscar Jackson Sr. and Jr. In addition to the supercharger that adds 50 HP and 45 LB/FT of torque to the stock performance numbers they have upgraded the suspension setup. The development car uses KW Variant 1 coilovers. To maximize grip, larger, wider 17 inch Volk CE28s wear Nitto Invo tires

This kit is California Emissions (CARB) approved and is designed to maximize fuel economy thanks to a built-in bypass valve that kicks in when the engine is cruising.

So who is running a similar setup?

Very SWEET unit, I met Oscar with the car at a meet in Los Angeles. As far as one ready for 2013 you should contact them.

I don't see how it's more realistic... I mean if you want your mpg. As far as power, the k still makes more than that, at the wheel O_o...

And the K would be N/A, less moving parts damaging the engine.

K-swap? More like gay-swap...

No it doesn't. It make a little less at the wheels in hp. Torque it makes like 10 ft-lbs more if it's a K24 but it also weighs more. So any extra hp the SI has is negated by the weight.

And you're also looking at 6k alone for the engine for a kswap. Not including your EM, swap, or custom parts. Have fun with that mess. I'll take plug and play with equal power for less $$ any day.
