good man good man!!! your on club-k as well. although your car may not be 29 years old like mine you ca still learn alot from them.

your are correct on the 4k-u as well it produces more powe down low in the (hypermiling rpms) and the twin squash head makes it produce more power than yor 1500cc modern motor .

my 3k is dyno'd for 50hp on the dot lol

which is ALOT for a car that light its great

Starlets are awesome as most of the models are sub 1000kg so dont need much power to get moving thus helping with economy.

Have you ever gone down the 1/4 mile?

Now that im able to post pics.
This was my car about 1 year ago


This is it now


Im not sure if these mods have increased or reduced drag.

They look good, that should add at least 15 HP.

Originally, the car had better aerodynamics; I hate to say.
