Hi

Congrats on your new CRV. The manual is anyday a great one to drive. I think it has adequate power already. Is it worth sacrificing warranty for just 15 BHP ? I think not, but if you must - get the FFE & Conical Filter, that should be enough to "make you feel more power" !!!

Cheers

well i suggest you get a standalone ecu. that should give you the gains you need. then after a while you can get a k&n apollo or a green storm cold air intake and a free flow exhaust.

I think FFE & Intake job is the best way to get a little bit more out of your car, but dont expect 15bhp. Realistically somewhere around 9bhp.

Ideally wait till 2nd service to get things done, around 5000kms to be precise.

it doesnt make much sense buying a new vehicle for Mods as it will void the warranty,but it depends on personal choice

K&N and FFE should be a good starting point though
