Post Villany Product's ZF1



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Hello to the good folks on this forum. I’ve been on this forum for a while now keeping it real low key. I was lucky enough to be one of the first of few out in USA Los Angeles to get the CRZ before official drop date.

quick info:
I bout mine at a local dealership, i didnt get hooked up. I had to pay that mark up just like you will if you want a CRZ. They cant feel the demand of the car, and please know most 6speeds will be sold before they arrive at the dealerships.

I received the CRZ last Friday, and I’ve been driving it around Orange County, Los Angeles County including DTLA and Hollywood. This Honda prevails a new generation of driving. I break necks everywhere; it’s the perfect California car, because of the three different modes ECON, NORMAL, SPORT. ECON feels sluggish but it’s good to press that button when you’re on a flat land straight away going 65mph and need to conserve gas, or when you’re in bumper to bumper traffic in Los Angeles or Orange County. The ‘NORMAL’ is the best setting you can keep it in because it gets the job done daily driving, you can conserve and still speed up quick if you’re in a situation. The SPORT mode turns the car into a beast, its crazy the gauge cluster lights up red, and you can feel the difference its like the whole car turns into a race car setting. It’s very responsive in 1st through 6th. I still have my EF2 with a XSI b16A so I know what quick is, and the CRZ has it in SPORT mode.

I am going to be doing some under wraps projects with some well known companies in the USA. So please stay tuned into VILLANY Product’s ZF1.

Yea, my advertisement worked!! All of you guys are going to buy from Villany now.

NO, LOC! Itís not like that fellas, The car was only featured on the VP blog first. Thatís why I was linking the post for you to see more pictures. I didnít want people to be asking dumb questions that I could easily inform people about what VP is first.

The ZF1 is currently in R & D seasonings at Tanabe and will be back on the streets this coming Wednesday. Iíve already got my hands on some EP3 Type R rims 5lug early August, so Ill have some great photos that express that jdm steelo shortly stay tuned folks!

ugh.... sorry tanabe but you guys in my opinion have a track record of making just ugly *** looking exhausts lol. no one wants a fart can on their new CR-Z!!

i will give you props on the touring design muffler though id buy that one potentially if we could see any dyno gains from it.

ALL--
You guys have a surprise, that I cant wait for you to see. The dyno testing went very well and the exhaust looks and sounds great. The Medalion Touring Exhaust is on my ZF1; it sounds similar to an Italian exotic. It also gained over 7hp. Plus the chassis braise and springs have the car riding righteous.

I am going to get some footy this morning and upload it on here shortly, stay tuned.

Itís all on the goober that buys the muffler and goes to any random muffler shop to put it on. These dudes are hella professional and they use the best possible stainless steel you can buy in Japan to create these exhaust.

You have to understand that the dyno sheets will be revealed and most exhaust that is placed on cars only makes one or two extra HP. This exhaust made over 7hp and it sounds bad ***. Itís a new sound for Honda forsure.

Once you see proof ill be waiting for those props you were speaking up on.



im not talking quality at all, im very aware tanabe makes a high quality product, that might show some gains, im only speaking of my own, and alot fo my fellow enthusiasts i know ,opinions on the asthetics of their exhaust, a new car like the CR-Z deservies a nice looking exhaust, not a fart can. Which is why i complimented them on their touring exhaust. From what your saying, if i do buy a crz, that touring exhaust will probobly be one of my choices, due to its looks, and as you said, sound and performance. Take for example Mugen's exhaust for the insight, it looks exotic, different, and good. I think cars like these deserve more exotic and origional looking exhausts, to set these cars apart from the typical tuner crowd.

i would love to see the before and after dyno sheets and more info on the exhaust though, should be very interesting

Thank you for the complements, I wasnt attending the R&D sessions so I would honestly think that they put it in sport mode but you never know. When I rev it up in sport mode I get some quite backfires. I am going to put the video up so you can know what I am refering too.

Looks good, keep up updated on this. Sorry, but I refuse to pay the $2500 markup for the CR-Z here in SD. I will wait a year before I shell out that kind of money...

The worse part is I have yet to see a 6 speed at the 3 Honda dealerships for the CRZ.

I want to test drive a 6-speed but it looks like only autos are here in SD. And yes, all the dealerships I've asked have this $2500 markup "limited availability" right on the sticker price... they will not budge on the markup!

Looks like I will get another Fit Sport or the new Mazda 2...

i guess you could fly out to ny, get a 6 speed for msrp and drive it back and save $2k.

Not a fan of either exhausts. Too bad the Medalion Touring Exhaust isn't a single tip. Car looks awesome lowered though, even on stockies.

Thanks for your opinion, but you should compare the other exhaust out there and tell us which one would be killing the tananbe touring one at the moment beside the spoon and mugen exhaust.

Thanks for the complement but its going to look a lot better once I put my EP3 type R rims on it. Just saving my pennys for tires cause i am broke at the moment until this weekend. I am going to have that type R OEM look for a while; while i stack my chips for some real offset three peice rims, so I can really stunt on these hoes.
