See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

For our small but determined Honda Insight customers, your day has finally arrived! Here are the ZEK20 and ZEK24 2000-06 Honda Insight K-series Swap Mount kit. You can order them online at Hasport Performance or call us at 602-470-0065. Price is $549.00

And for his perseverance in getting this project moving and finished, Austin Perdue had the honor of knowing this before the public and the ability to purchase the first ZEK24 kit. Thanks Austin for so nicely pushing us to push Brian Gillespie to accomplish it. Doesn’t hurt that the Insight is very special to Brian.
They even called me out by name.

Mounts are on the way, swap will be happening Soon™.

That is ridiculous! And it's extra-un-ecomodded, too: automatic transmission!

Put my car on a calibrated scale today before removing the engine - 1834lbs. That includes: CR-Z seats (+48lbs over stock), subwoofer + amp + Infinity speaker install (est. 15lbs), additional sound dampening (~25lbs), full tank of gas (75lbs), full wiper reservoir (8lbs), a rebuilt interior (maybe 15lbs?), as well as a jack, spare tire, some tools, aftermarket DC-DC converter and a bit of junk in the glove box. Minus all this stuff the car would weigh under 1650lbs. Will weigh the car after my swap.
