Ha! The NSX belongs to my friend who gave me a ride to the dealership. He's a Honda junkie just like me.

K&N intake installed, fiddling with the Ktuner now to tweak the ECU. Next step, supercharger and better tires! The stock tires are garbage.

Always had a soft spot for the CR-Z...would love to have one, but it's a bit impractical for me right now. Are you going to have a progress thread for it? Definitely going to follow your additions!

I've always wanted to try one, bu the local dealers never have a 6MT in stock when I've stopped in.

I've been taking notes and photos as I go. Progress thread once I get the supercharger and figure out how to tune it. In addition I'm thinking of keeping the stock 16" wheels and going with Firehawk 500 Indy tires. They're CHEAP and do what I want.

Supercharger happening in the spring. I've had a Corgi that required two leg surgeries and I've been renovating my backyard.

Life happens.

These are the 18" accessory wheels for the CR-Z along with Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

The supercharger is getting installed this month!

Me either. The pictures don't do them justice.

Definitely classy and sporty at the same time.

I think they will look even better if you can push the rear out by about 10mm.

Funny you mention that, the '16 CR-Z got the rear track pushed out by 10mm vs. other years. Something I may do later this year is get the Honda accessory suspension, which lowers it an inch.
