Hello...Dreams of 70mpg

Hi all, this is a great site. Ive spent many hours reading over threads here. So heres my plan... Ive got a 91 CRX HF. It has some rust on the doors and some on the rear quarter panels. So I am going to try to find some doors from an 88-89 at the junk yard (lighter weight). Replace the seats with light weight racing seats. Rear wheel skirts. Smooth wheel covers for the front. Change the antenna. Lower it. Skid plate. The budget for this project is $4k. All labor will be done in house, so no expense there. Now Im curious to here your thoughts on what to do with the motor. Would there be a better swap for a project like this? Or is this a good base engine to work with? If I stick with this one, I will probably go for high compression piston, light weight pulleys, and light weight fly wheel. Let me know if there are any mods Im missing here that I should consider. Thanks for any help, and when the project gets under way I will start a thread for the build.
