Perfect Darin.

One thing I was thinking about is what if car buyers were better educated about lean burn operation when purchasing these cars new. I was just a wee lad when the vx and hx were in the showroom so I'm not sure how knowledgable the salesmen were about the cars and if they used that knowledge to educate the buyers and potential buyers.

Heck some "Honda enthusiasts" put these vxs for sale and they don't even know what they are about. Some ads feature the stock vx drivetrain with aftermarket intake/ header. Then the seller says "this car is fast vtec kicks in hard" When in fact the car is slow as balls and they are used to driving an 86 escort.
