In the US market, Honda Performance Development (HPD) will offer a supercharger kit to 2013 and 2014 models. By adding this form of forced induction, we will see the power and torque boost from 100kW and 190Nm to 147kW and 239Nm. Buyers will have the option to add sports suspension, bigger 300mm disc brakes and larger 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. Let’s hope Honda Australia follow suit!

The night started off with some pho and 3 fried eggs at Pho PHD. Once dinner was demolished, it was only a short drive to meet up with the rest who braved the cold. It’s been a while since our last meet in NSW so it was good to catch up with the regulars and meet new members. Check out the coverage & reflection here.
