Been lurking a while. Introduction time.

Greetings from sunny (and hot) California. I've been lurking here for a while and thought I'd finally get involved. I'm the proud owner of a 1997 Acura CL (V6 automatic variety). It has no mods just yet, with the exception of a SGII and a "driver adjustment". It probably will get no mods other than a trade in to convert it to the I4 manual variety (+4 MPG EPA), which, should that happen, would start getting modded. I have a few ideas floating around in my head. With my adjustments I'm achieving 2-3 MPG more than I was before.

As for me, I am a college student that for whatever reason decided after 2.5 years of business admin. studies, to go into mechanical engineering. Maybe I just don't want to leave school, but its a decision I'm glad I made. I also work (volunteer) on a USAC racing team as a data acquisition and engineering assistant. (Eco-friendly? Somewhat. They do run on methanol.)

Just thought I'd let you know a little about me, and say this is a good place to be.

Welcome to the site. Starting out at 29% over EPA isn't too shabby.
