Thanks for the engine pic. I just thought I remembered hearing that it would say vtec on the rocker cover. At close to $4/gal and likely higher the way things are going I could see hx badges being stuck on old civics at sale time. I think more people than from this forum know what kind of fuel economy is expected from an hf/hx/xfi/etc.
I'm intrigued with the extra bit of mileage available on a few cars and like to see how well I can do with them. I had no interest in this car if it was not an hx. The last two saturns I owned were the SL model, not the SL1 they were advertised as. The SL did not have power steering and was the car I wanted. My CRX was a HF. I would not have bought it if it was an Si.

Looks like I'll just buy a stock factory bumper cover unless advised different before I get to it.
Get bored very quickly. Vibe, Saturn, and crv all long gone. Been a while but I'm back in the game, gunna see what I can do with this Corolla.
