I can't direct you to any particular websites but I used to own a 2000 CR-V. Great vehicles. There's not much out there that is CR-V specific in the States. There are people who have done the VTEC head swap and added turbos and superchargers to theirs. I also remember Jackson racing making a supercharger for the 1997-98 CR-Vs. In case you don't know, the 1997-2001 honda CR-V came with a B20B ('97-'98) or B20Z enignes('99-'01). The B20B had 126 hp, while the B20Z had 146hp. Basically, the B20 is an Acura Integra B18 engine with larger pistons. While the B20 wasn' t going to win any awards in hp ratings, it had an impressive amount of torque. The B20 is a dog in a CR-V, yet this engine in the lighter Civic is an amazing experience. The Civic really flies with a B20. For this reason, a B20 has been avery popular for swapping into Civics and Integras. Being a B-Series engine, it is easy to do and you can extract big power from it when done correctly.The reason I mentioned this is because there aren't very many CR-Vs out there that have been tinkered with. If you decide to add some power to your engine, you need to do a search on B20 Civics or B20 Integras. Better yet visit forums dedicated to Civics and Integras and look for owners who have done the swap. You'll get to know what you can and can't do to get the most out of your engine reliably. If you have two-wheel drive, you can do engine swaps; 4 wheel drive, you'll have to do mods to your engine.If handling is what you're looking for, there are lots of shops that have or can order the parts for you. In fact, they can even give you advice on what you need to buy to enhance your handling. I hope this helps.
