The stock Cd of that car is .32, but I see some pretty low hanging fruit as it were to bring it down to .29 at least. From the looks of it that car would have a nice aerodynamic shape if it weren't for that +4HP rear spoiler and the useless hood scoop. The more I look at it the better prepared it looks to get some nice MPG numbers with a few aero tweaks. Although it's a bit ambitious, if you're so inclined, that engine bay is probably in a position to handle a swap for one of the many smaller and even more efficient toyota engines if you just so happen to find one lying around in a junkyard somewhere.

Welcome and good luck!
