Got a source of that info for me to follow?

Cobb had an Enginer kit in his 2nd gen Insight, which worked fine except for the DC booster quitting at a hump. Based on that I can't see why my plan would not work.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
