Good luck on the 45 mpg. If you slow down enough you'll hit it, but just those few changes won't get you there.
The motors are the same for these cars minus intake manifolds and other small things. Do you know exactly what is different that makes the HX have lean burn? I can swap in an ECU from an HX and my car will run fine minus having vtec. I know a couple of performance oriented ECU tuners that mainly do boosted engines and im going to contact them and see if they can chip an ecu to fuel economy.
