Are you serious?? Damn that took the idea right out of my head! I want to open up an Eco/ drift shop so bad. I put a d15b non vtec in my dads car and he went from 37 to 42 mpg. You can also get the D15 with dual vtec and lean burn from Japan for around 8 or 900dollars with 20-40k miles and build your own car. That's what I like doing. Building a hot rod. But really it's more like a cold rod lol. Still. It's way more fun than buying a Prius

Congrats on the find! Put it in the garage, and post a fuel log:
