New guy from TN

I grew up on gas-guzzling hot rods.

I have a one-man modified running around in my head now though & figured it was a good opportunity to utilize a small powerplant. Space in the engine compartment is limited anyway.

I have a few questions about the Suzuki 1.0. Hope I can find some help here.

Thanks, JH

Hot roddin' was more fun before computers. Had to do a lot of work to get things right, and as people made more money and cars were cheaper before 1980 (by every definition) there were more good used cars to choose from, and they were cheaper to buy, change and fix.

Eco-moddin' is just more of the same line of thinking: Application, study, experimentation and never quite being satisfied with the results.

Welcome Jim Harrison. (A fine author by that name).
