Build Thread:
Current Mods: 55 PSI in the tires. Partial radiator block. Grid charger.

Planned Mods: Forced Auto Stop. Active grill block. Better underbody aero. Camera/mirror delete. Block heater. I have a block heater and Manual Integrated Motor Assist waiting to be installed. On order is OBDII C&C, a Scangauge of sorts that is designed specifically for the Insight and can also monitor the hybrid system. After that, an intelligent, higher amperage grid charger and more battery.
