Jackson Racing CR-Z Supercharger

The CR-Z world gets bigger as US made supercharger becomes available for sale. To make the release even better the supercharger setup is CARB legal.

This is a much needed improvement to an already fun vehicle with no import overhead to pay for. Hopefully Jackson Racing will also allow the CVT users to enjoy this modification at some point, but the MT release is a welcome sight.

Following information is posted from the Jackson Racing site and details a well formed FAQ and the different pricing models.
