Default Just realized this forum existed + CRV

I was thinking damn we need another forum on HT for crv's etc, then I just opened my eye and bam! one already exists.

Anyway continuing my honda loyalism me and the missus purchased a 2003 CRV EX-L.

I haven't seen much aftermarket gears towards it though, i.e. suspension, wheels, super chargers?

I can't see no reason why honda can't form a partnership with say Comptech for a factory support super charger upgrade. While found the crv had a nicer power band than the other compact suv's we tested, it could still use a little bump. And where the intake now faces the front I think it would be a very nice upgrade!

With that thought whats the scoop on the new i-vtec motors? Are they strong? i.e. cylinder sleves, rods, pistons etc.

Anyway I'm probably going to buy a set of wheels the summer, any one have any recommendations for some thing that would look cool?

i'm not too sure of the strength of the k motors.. but i do know they are freaking crazy if you go n/a route. look at the k20's. they can put down 200whp with a few bolt ons. i'm sure the k24 will producce a lot mor epower due to displacement... also, if you stick with n.a get a type s head.

k-series is a great motor. you could do a head swap from an rsx-s or tsx...that would yield some great power. they also react well to turbocharging. your k24 is a larger displacement of the k20 found in the civic si and rsx base, same motor as in the accord too. might check those forums for more info on upgrades.

I've got the k20A4 Japanese 2.0 Sport engine (Direct import from Japan), which head do you reckon I could use? And a turbo or Super charged setup with a 4-speed tranny?
