what can i do to increase my CRV horsepower in the easy way?
i want to have a faster accaleration, but i dont want to spend too much money on turbo or supercharge,what other option do i have?
your best bet is to buy a cold air intake its cheap and simple so you could install it your self in under an hour. it also has the ability to make your car more fuel efficent. A chip and exhuast will help but those are a little more expensive. Those are your cheapest and easiest mods to make your car go fast. Also removing weight from the car helps a lot as well. every one hundred pounds the car loses is like it gains 10 horsepower
Rate of acceleration is loosely determined by how much weight your given amount of power has to move - power/weight ratio. This can be increased in two ways - Increase power, which generally costs money. - Reduce weight - costs time. Reducing weight gives a better result percentage wise ie increasing power by 10% will have a lesser effect on the power/weight ratio than by reducing the weight by 10%.
unless you drop some cash you arent going to see a difference. by just adding a CAI youre not going see any difference. the only way your going to see any difference in acceleration is by A) reducing the weight of the car B) droppping the money to get mroe than just a couple small mods or C) change the gear ratios. if you can put a different differential on the car it you can make it accelerate much faster by adding zero power or lightening the vehicle. problem is by putting lower gearing you youre also going to see a reduced mpg. my suggestion is adding more hp by these upgrades. CAI, chip, exhaust, and thermostat. all these together will get you what you want. and when i say exhaust i dont mean a fart can muffler. i mean header, cat, and muffler. full system. plus all these together will increase your mileage. but its not going to be cheap
also You can change wheels to 14 inch - this give You bether acceleration without more horsepower . Small tips :)
where do I buy these things I'm in the same boat as the guy who started the thread?
