Default What upgrades can I make to a 99 Honda CRV?

I know this may seem silly to some, but this is the car that I have so I'm asking. Is there an engine swap that I can do? I want to put in a larger one i.e. V6. Also I want to put some blowers and sway bars on it. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

I ask the same similar question and the answer is that you can't put a V6 on a CRV no matter what year. mine is 05 and I'm having so much fun with it and I made it look like a Mercedes-Benz but even with the Cold Air Intake. its still don't give at much power. I only Improve and got HP from 160 up to 175HP but thats about it and I lost my got gas mileage. any way I was thinking on putting a 08 Acura TL on my CRV but they said it possible but it will be a hard work and it will cost me a lot and maintiance will make you crazy but the CRV engine offset is too small for a V6 so even if you manage to put a V6 it will wear you down later when you take it for maintenance because which mean the mechanic will have to take out the engine just to change the timing belt you see. so there aren't enough room. I will say however if you want to I'm prove your HP. I will say get an Acura TSX engine because even thought they are the same engine but the TSX engine have a better technology that is was it get 204HP THAT is about 54HP more than your V. I will say get that TSX engine and Turbo charge it or Supercharge it. that will work but you'll be looking up to 5K including the work, labor and the engine. that is all I can say about improving the HP on your V. your model has a lot of accessory and mods for your V. like my favorite Full Body Kit. you can get it from or some other website. I will say, put in intake, a full catback exhaust, nice 17" wheel, leather interior, full body kits, sound system, TV's and you good to go. I'm almost done with mine. good luck.
