Are they worth the purchase? I really have been interested in purchasing one but still see they are quite expensive.

Brand new they were $2500. They are also discontinued, along with most of the other brands of supercharger available for the CRZ. So any NIB, refurbished, or used sets you see for sale will have a price not too far from the brand new, because it’s rare now.

Is it worth it? I think that’s a personal question. The crz is already a slow car, and adding a S/C to a hybrid drivetrain can only do so much. Someone looking for real power would turbocharge or k-swap the car. S/C is a cheaper, quicker (5-8 hours) solution to add some more pep. I own a sprintex s/c crz and also a normal crz. I can DEFINITELY notice a difference, but I’m still not winning any races haha.

I think you might be racing the wrong cars. In theory any supercharged CR-Z with a proper tune should at least be able to hang with if not outright Beat a Civic SI, at least a factory stock one. Or maybe it's the CVT that's robbing you of your power.😉

CR-Z is only ~300lbs lighter than a Civic Si and even with the supercharger it is still down 50hp. Manual or CVT the CR-Z is going to be outrun by a Civic.

At 185 whp that puts this SC CR-Z within 20 hp of what most factory Civic SI are rated bhp, iirc. Add the low end torque that the Z has with a driver that knows what they're doing and it should stand a decent chance. Just saying.

That would be pretty heavily modified to get 185hp. Spintex claims 155hp. A quick Hondata tune on a Civic bumps 30hp for nothing more than plugging in and hitting upload.

But hey I am pretty heavily biased with a K24Z7 swapped CR-Z.

Well I'm not looking to really race anyone, I just wanted to get it a little bit more power as a fun daily that looks and sounds good. I've already installed some mods including some expensive spoon sports stuff. The sprintex would be the final touch if I can get it at a good price, which 2k isn't too bad I think. I just wish someone was willing to go a little lower.

All in all. It all depends on what you're looking for. A supercharger is decent for low end power for cheap and ease of install as oppose to a K-Swap. K-Swap if you're looking for overall power since it's a better platform period. With my JRSC supercharged crz I have personally beaten a few bolt on SI but I have always lost to a tuned SI with a good driver in a DRAG race. K's are just a faster motor. On the track like circuit/road racing then that's another story since I've personally beaten many classes of cars but then again that's on driver skill too.
