Hey man, welcome aboard.

I know the that route pretty well, I go down to San Diego fairly often.
Driving slow may not be enjoyable but it's definitely very beneficial. Also, I don't know if you are currently doing any EOC, but there are a few good spots to do it.

The first on the southbound trip is from Misson St (Fallbrook) down to the golf resort, I can usually pick up 20mph and lose it on that stretch before powering back up again.

Then from Felicita (Escondido) to just before Lake Hodges (past Via Rancho Parkway)

On the return trip there's the huge drop from Fallbrook, which has the 10 or 13 mile marker for Temecula on it, you don't actually pick up much speed down it, but can maintain your current speed through the drop to about just before the exit.

Then from just after the border checkpoint to a squeak beyond the 79 South exit.

Pretty interested in checking out both of your cars.
Even willing to help you swap in a D15Z1. I've got some ideas on how you can make it pass smog and BAR.

I've been wanting to do this same swap, but lack a CRX.
