At a 95mpg best without a VTEC-E, a lean burn engine could push this car into the record books.
If I did install one of the 3-stage VTEC engines that weren't sold in the USA, where would I get the parts and maintenance needed to keep it running? My current engine has about 290,000 miles on it and is starting to burn some oil. so I expect it will likely need replacement within 2 years.
