KraftWerks Announces Honda Fit High-Boost Supercharger Kit
If you are a fan of the late model B-Segment cars, you probably feel like us that the Honda Fit is one of the best of the breed. It certainly has the best handling. However the cars in this segment are pretty anemic and the amount of truly effective performance parts for these drivelines has been lacking. Well now things have changed as KraftWerks is pleased to release their new Supercharger kit for the Honda fit. If you didn't know, KraftWerks is the brain child of supercharger guru and long time veteran master Honda tuner Oscar Jackson. If you know Oscar like we do, you can be confident that these are complete and well engineered kits.
|KraftWerks' Honda Fit High-Boost Supercharger Kit measures in at 163.7 whp and 132.2 lb-ft torque at 10 psi. The dyno sheet reveals horsepower and torque gains throughout the powerband
The KraftWerks Fit kit pumps out an Impressive 164 whp and 132 lb/ft of torque at 10 psi for the first-generation (’07-’08) Honda Fit. The KraftWerks kit come complete with an under-hood intercooler, cowl induction kit and Hondata engine management. KraftWerks supercharger system promises reliable, turn-key horsepower in both daily driving and track day performance.
|The High-Boost Supercharger Kit includes a air-to-air intercooler that mounts neatly under the hood, in between the throttle body and radiator, and picks up airflow from the KraftWerks intercooler cowl.
The KraftWerks’ kit features the remarkable and innovative C15-60 traction drive Rotrex supercharger. The innovative traction drive is silent and effectively decouples the supercharger under light loads to minimize the impact on fuel economy.
Forced induction of late model motors without proper engine management using regulators and other bandaids is risky business but KraftWerks solution is complete. They called upon the engineers at Hondata to tailor the Fit’s ECU to high-boost duties. The ECU’s fuel and ignition maps have been calibrated to the kit’s RC Engineering 310cc fuel injectors making a true plug-and-play solution that’s safe, reliable, and functions with the stock header/catalytic converter combo or any number of full-race exhaust manifolds. Hondata also lowered the VTEC window for improved driveability, removed the speed limiter, and raised redline to 7,100 rpm. The result is the perfect compromise between daily driving and track performance. Hondata’s Honda Fit ECU reflash is available exclusively through KraftWerks and is currently the only Fit tuning solution available.

Safety and reliability is further enhanced with an intercooler package. KraftWerks knew that their customers wanted an intercooler, but we also knew that they weren’t interested in ditching their fog lights or chopping up their front bumpers just to get a front-mount intercooler to fit. KraftWerks’ solution is a cowl mounted air-to-air intercooler system that mounts neatly under the hood in-between the throttle body and radiator. The intercooler is fed cold air from a provided carbon fiber intercooler cowl. The cowl fits just below the windshield where high-pressure air is trapped and diverts cold airflow across the intercooler. The entire kit bolts on without any cutting or permanent modifications to the vehicle and includes provisions for both the intake air temperature sensor and the supercharger bypass valve.

Finally, KraftWerks says If you replace the restrictive stock exhaust manifold with a header, gains as high as 7 whp and 13 lb-ft of torque more have been found in addition to the claimed 164 whp. We look forward to doing a full evaluation of this kit in the future. Good Job KraftWerks!
