Top Secret / GReddy CRZ Turbo Kit Collaboration

     TOP SECRET X GReddy TD04H Turbo System for CR-Z

Over the past few months the famous Japanese Tuning Magazine "Option Magazine" has been running some CR-Z Tsukuba Battles between two Tuned CR-Z to see the potential for aftermarket performance.  GReddy/TRUST Japan, was happy to work along side the legendary Smoky Nagata's TOP SECRET team with a GReddy TD04H Turbocharged challenger (tuned with e-Manage Ultimate) against a Supercharged opponent.

We are pleasantly surprised of how well matched the TD04H matches with the Hybrid CRZ engine for both overall torque, power and response for performance driving.

Here are a few pages from the articles (Option 12/2010, 01/2011. & 02/2011) :

                         The Turbo CR-Z was boosted to 0.45kg/cm2 for 204.0ps (+70ps over stock)
                         The test driver loved how well the power-band matched well with the car
                         Best Time of 1:08.364 (2.264sec quicker then the other CRZ)

Round #2 - 300hp Battle around Tsukuba Circuit
