It is only a shell. No motor. Just picked up a B16 and already had a B16 trans I was going to use for my H2B but I will buy CTR later on. I plan to do LS 5th gear in the trans so I can have a lower gearing.

Me as well. Trying to be able to have some fun at the foot when wanted, but good MPG otherwise. Should be a good time. I will start a build thread here in a few weeks once my stuff is moved to my new storage unit.

I don't like mods because I'm not that comfortable with my expertise in realizing them. My dream mod would be to replace the rear hatch of my car with carbon fiber/lexan window. I just know that thing must weigh a hideous amount.

Hatch would be decent but still not as much as people think. Mods are simple in reality. The more efficient a motor can flow and operate, the better mpg you can attain. Most people use that for go fast but if a motor is working harder, you can be robbed of a lot. Hence why ill never do a WAI rather than maybe simulate while getting cold clean air for a cleaner burn.

This would be for my Fiat 500. It gets very good mpg out of the box. With a manual trans. and driving skill you can get well over 40 mpg without trying too hard. So I am looking for motivation to perform mods (which would be better handling).

FYI, The so-called "multi-air" engine in the 500 is unusual in that it has no throttle. The intake valves are controlled hydraulically (by oil) in a continuous fashion. At 1.4 liters displacement, it is the biggest engine they have designed for the car. In Europe, they also have a 1.2L, and 1.3L diesel (sob!) But I like that the little four-banger dozes in slow traffic (leans itself down) and still gets good mpg.

Weird. I'm not too in tune to how Fiat works so forgive me. Suspension is very easy to work with. If you have anything you need to bounce off me, feel free to. I don't have much I want to do to the hatch as it will be a DD but I do still want slight lowering and much better handles so I will be purchasing an Eibach Pro System Plus for that. Takes care of everything and is said to be quite smooth. As for engine, I already have a PWJDM Carbon Kevlar intake with velocity stack to be used. I will be finding a full exhaust system to utilize and that will be about where my performance stops. Other than that, I will use my Honda knowledge and overall mechanical/electrical engineering skills to see what I can do while keeping it good looking, perform well, and rack the MPG up.
