  1. Let's Talk Boost

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I would like to know more about how turbo boost is applied to our 1.5L engine. So I have a few questions. 1. Do the instruments that plug into the OBD port give you a real time readout of boost? 2. Is the boost constant at a given rpm. For example always at the 18.5 limit at 3000 rpm, or does...
  2. Boost Gauge?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Anyone installed a boost gauge? I haven't found any good after market options for one. I know the target audience of the CRV probably isn't looking for a boost gauge but I've never owned a turbo charged car that didn't have one. I'd like to be able to keep an eye on boos pressure and vacuum.
  3. Boost values for 1.5T?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So, by taking (probably) too many default settings on available turbo calculators along w/ the readily available Honda specs for displacement, horsepower and compression ratio, I'm getting around 13psi of boost at max HP. Does that sound about right? Seems high to me, especially w/ ~10:1...

    Problems & Issues
    Strange thing has been happening with my 2008 CR-V diesel for quite a few months now and it's getting worse. There's three things happening but I'm sure they are all related. - Firstly, when the engine is cold if I pull reasonably well in 2nd gear from about 1,400rpm to 2,000rpm then change...

  7. Battery Boost Complications

    Maintenance and Service
    Our 2009 Honda CRV was parked with the lights left on for a few days, and the battery was drained. I got the car running with a boost from another vehicle. The car providing the boost was running while I started the CRV. The CRV started, but appears to be no longer holding a charge. The battery...

  9. 09 DIY Help needed - power boost + retrofit project

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods I basically know nothing about those 2 things. I drive an 09' CRV EX-L w/o navi for power boost... I feel like i need it because it feels weak quite frequently. I'm not sure if I want to have such mod and so I'd like to ask for some opinions here. What are my options? I'd like to know...
  10. '08 CRV EX Performance Boost?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    Hey guys, I was thinking, is there any way I could increase the performance of my V? Now I know that the Honda CRV isn't really the kind of car built for speed, but I would love to see if I could get a little more "oopmh". Turbos and Superchargers are obviously out of the question, but are...
