Default New Mugen Parts For Honda’s CR-Z



Quote:
The Mugen parts will become available on various dates from April and will include front and rear half spoilers, front grille, side skirts, rear wing, hydrophilic side mirror replacements and two different alloy wheel designs for the exterior, while performance parts will include a stainless steel exhaust system, sports suspension kit, air cleaner and airbox and performance brake pads. Interior goodies include a dry carbon interior mirror cover, floor mats and a GFRP gauge mount for 3 gauges on the dashboard.

From April 26, the front and rear half spoilers and side skirts as a set will retail for 168,000 JPY (186,900 JPY painted). Individually the front half spoiler will sell for 51,450 JPY (57,750 JPY painted), the side skirts for 57,750 JPY (66,150 JPY painted) and the rear half spoiler for 58,800 JPY (63,000 JPY painted). A little earlier on April 15 a black sports grille will become available for 40,950 JPY with optional LED illumination for 36,750 JPY. A carbon number plate surround for 1,290 JPY will also be available at the same time. Also available from April 26 will be the multi-layered hydrophilic side mirrors which reduce the dazzling effect of sunshine and infrared rays. Both left and right mirrors are curved to offer a wide angle of view and can be simply installed over the existing mirrors. The mirrors will retail for 19,950 JPY.
Mugen NR and GP series wheels are available for the CR-Z and will come in different finishes. The NR series 10-spoke wheels are available in ‘Black Metal Coat’ (47,250 JPY per wheel), ‘Mirror Face’ (40,950 JPY per wheel) and silver (39,900 JPY per wheel) finishes and all are suitable for 205/45 R17 tires. The GP series 7-spoke wheels come in two finishes, bronze and gun metallic, both for 68,250 JPY per wheel. The GP series is Mugen’s flagship model and each wheel weighs at least 1kg less than the stock factory supplied alloys.

On the performance side, the stainless steel exhaust is designed to decrease the amount of bends in the pipe work to improve flow and features a ‘Delta Finisher’ exhaust tip (which looks like it would suit a Mazda RX-8 quite well) and will become available on April 26 for 134,400 JPY. The sports suspension kit will be available for both CVT and 6MT versions of the the CR-Z and feature adjustable height anywhere from -15mm to +20mm and have 5 step adjustable damping. Both CVT and 6MT kits will retail for 177,450 JPY and will be available from Arpil 26. The performance air cleaner and airbox boasts increased air flow over the stock intake and features a carbon cover. The Mugen airbox will become available from May 27 and retail for 94,500 JPY. The Type S (Type Sport) brake pads are suited to a wide range of driving conditions and have an operating temperature between 50 and 550 degrees. The Tpye S pads will sell for 23,100 JPY (front) and 19,950 JPY (rear) and are slated for a late July release.

The Mugen GFRP gauge mount includes three electronic gauges for water temp, oil temp and oil pressure which have peak recall and warning functions and are linked to a control unit. The gauge mount sits on top of the dashboard and does not obstruct the drivers view at all. The GFRP gage mount is available for 126,000 JPY. The carbon interior mirror cover simply fits over the existing mirror and sells for 11,550 JPY. Finally there are the Mugen floor mats which can be had as a set of two front mats only for 19,950 JPY or a set of four mats for front and rear for 4,150 JPY.

Here is an idea. Can Mugen give me a computer that can match the economy numbers of the first generation insight? I know asking for 0-60 and ¼ mile times are pointless but if this could also match an SCCA STS prepped CRX that would be nice as well.

The suspension and airbox should work on the current model Fit. Bought the only things I would own as well.

I can dig it. The exhaust and wing are a bit over the top, but the rest of the car looks to be very Mazdaspeed/RX-8 to me. The gold rims are tight as well.

I was going to say something similar. Mugen has jumped off the deep end.

Is Spoon still around?

Does triangular exhaust piping flow better than circular?

Um, why? The gas that flows closer to the walls flows slower, a circle is the one shape that makes the largest volume of gas the furthest away form the walls. With no corners, the flow is less than inhibited. The fact that ALL exhaust is round is not an accident.

unless those parts include something along the lines of K20, K23, or K24 to replace the drivetrain that likely will fail to achieve the mileage/performance of my current CRX, no thanks.

Indeed.

It looks like they intended to set it up to exit through the center of the diffuser. Then just decided to take a day off and run it under the diffuser like every other exhaust.

Honda needs to have nothing to do with Mugen anymore. They seem to only be focused on visual details and nothing performance oriented like they used to be. The CR-Z will be eleventybillion times better off without a single Mugen part.

Mugen has lost it. Their line of "performance parts" for the hyped CR-Z includes side mirror tint? How much is that going to cost?
