The L1.5 is the same Honda L engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I think it has a 1.5 Bar map sensor, so it would be capable of 6 pounds of boost with little more than a fuel pressure regulator and cooler plugs. Adding a controller would fine tune it. 6 pounds of boost would be 40 to 50 HP. The only problem would be the IMA motor. Not sure how that works with the L1.5 motor. Also heard that Hondata flash-pro is coming out for the CRZ so more options will be available soon.

I just sent Sprintex an email asking about their plans for the CRZ. They already sell a kit for the Fit/Jazz, i couldn't imagine them not wanting to expand their market.

Well, i just go an email from Mark over at Sprintex. He says that they have started on the CRZ project, and that i should keep an eye on their website. He will contact me when he has further information.

I think it was somewhere around $2.5K. The Sprintex supercharger that is out for the Fit only works on the ones with out an EGR valve (IE Non-USDM). No one in the US has gotten a Sprintex kit for their Fit and, IMO, Sprintex is blowing BS everywhere by the ton.. Don't get your hopes up for something from them. They don't see a market in the US so they won't be putting their effort into making it compatible(in their eyes).

IIR, the Mugen RR CRZ still has the IMA in and the same engine, and is supercharged, so it may be a non-issue.

Bypassing an EGR valve is so easy it's not even funny. It's the most bull**** excuse for not producing a product I've ever heard. Sure they're saving their ass for that idiot that does it, blows up their engine, and then tries to sue because they were "forced" to bypass a OEM valve.

Do I think the EGR is going to prevent us from using a SC on the CRZ with the IMA? Hell no. Will you be able to get a Mugen RR Supercharger? Doubtful.

I thought they were going to produce the supercharged Mugen iCF in the UK. Is that something we wouldn't be able to find a part number for and bring over to the states?

P.S. I don't know much about forced induction, so... sorry?

I think it would be rather hard. Like only a UK dealership could order the part directly from honda rather than just anyone being able to order it. Idk for sure but I feel like they're going to make it really hard to get a hold of. And I don't think EUDM has EGR valves either so you'll probably have that issue with them as well with not wanting to sell to USDM owners.

No need to apologize at all.

Sprintex Supercharger

Sprintex Supercharger :
That solution without intercooler might be the "best of both worlds" solution for a little gain in power, without the fuel hungruy Spoon camshaft, or the pricey and complex HKS supercharger.

Really, not everyone needs 200hp in a CR-Z, to my taste the need is only MIDDLE GRUNT and for the moment i am happy with the GE8 Intake manifold plenum wich added just that.

A supercharger would be icing on the cake.

Soo i know this was a dead subject but i saw the video and hadnt seen it before so i figured id post it. If this could be done in the states without the EGR Valve being an issue it would probably be the most efficient and effective way of gaining power.

This is what I found:

From their main Australian site it's available for the CRZ
Sprintex - Superchargers and Supercharger Systems | Honda CRZ
http://www.sprintex.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/13.-Honda-CRZ-2013.pdf

Their US site states the blower is available for the "1.5L VTEC generation II petrol engine"
Honda | Sprintex USA

The US version naturally makes provision for the EGR, which was a huge issue for the Fitfreak guys when I was still over there. I'm not sure whether any alternations were made between the Fit version and the CRZ version. I would think they are the same, based on Sprintex's marketing.

I researched this package when I still had my Fit many moons ago. Just note that there's no additional form of cooling, so increasing the power later on will be difficult.

Another revival... Saw some info on this on IG looks to be comin soon for like 3k. Anybody have some more info on this.
Yes that is true.

Originally supposed to be released at the end of this month.

Last time I spoke with Gary the date was being pushed back as they were having issues with hood clearance. They also had more work to do on the Brz/Frs and Jeep Supercharger, so ours was going on the back burner for the time being.

I will be buying this unit once it is released.

The biggest issue with the fit version seemed to be there supplied tuning unit. It needed to be hard wired in and constantly lost connection amongst other things. The new version should be plug and play (I know the overseas one for the Cr-Z is plug and play).

Nice definitely a nice alternative to the outrageously priced HPD nonsense.
Outrageously priced? This Sprintex kit is non-intercooled, comes with no tuning solution, and only good for about 20 - 30whp over stock. Not to mention you're going to have to supply your own injectors, Hondata unit, and then find someone to write a new fuel map for you. I have no doubt you're going to have encroached on the HPD purchase price by the time you're all said and done with that Sprintex kit.

Edit: Injectors not required, and they do offer a tuning solution at an additional cost.

For an extra $2200 (HPD kit from Collegehills - HPD Supercharger - 06100-F27S-A00 - College Hills Honda), you get a complete air-to-air system with piping, injectors, as well as a re-tuned ECU, good for 70 - 80whp over stock.

Disclaimer: Not trying to make this a Sprintex vs. HPD discussion; they are not the same thing, and should not be compared as such - I just felt the need to weigh the pros and cons. Sorry to jack the thread, still cool to see new options for our platform!
