Hello and help please :)
 
Hi everyone! I have acquired a 2007 Focus ZX3 2.0l with 210K miles and a blown MTX75 transmission for no cost other than my sanity. I received the car form my girlfriend so, as a shadetree mechanic and all around tinkerer I already have a history with this car and have had mixed feelings on what to do with it. That is until I discovered this forum.

I have thought about cutting this car into pieces simply for amusement and considering I have a 90 mile commute every day, what better goal could I have than to save money on fuel!

I would like to start a build thread to chronicle this project, but I know how some forums get about newbies posting in the wrong places so if someone could drop me the right link that would be swell. I am eager to see what I can learn from this community and apply to poor old Courage!

In general, it depends on your plans. Some things like Hybrids or Fossil Fuel Free won't apply:
EcoModding Central
Discuss everything related to vehicle mods here, from ideas to experiments to results.

Aerodynamics
Interested in aerodynamics, or tweaking your vehicle's CdA for better fuel economy? Check in here.

Instrumentation
Whether adjusting the nut behind the wheel or evaluating your latest mod, proper fuel economy instrumentation is key.

DIY / How-to
One of the keys to EcoModding is DIY. This forum is for EcoModding DIY and How-To guides.

General Efficiency Discussion
Transportation & efficiency topics that don't really fit in any of the above.
The mods can fix any boo-boos.

Thanks Matt & Freebeard. I don't know exactly how far in how many directions I want to take this project yet and I'm mostly on an information hunt right now to help determine that. I'm going to get my thoughts and some source material together and make a post to Ecomodding Central soon. Hope to see you guys and other helpful users there!
