One of the bummers of Cali smog regs is that exploring such modifications of an engine makes your daily driver illegal. I would not pass smog with such mods. They make me remove my brake booster canister intake tube. Go to the wrong shop, and I get rejected for my gearing. Extra sensors and a non-standard ECU sound like instant fail territory.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
