My apologies. I thought the engine in the HF was smaller, a 1300cc one. But it seems it is also a 1500cc engine, yes? So I imagine you might be correct about more hp and more mpg, and that Ryland is correct too. Would you be keeping the transmission?

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.

Yes, the HF is a 1500cc. I will be keeping the same transaxle because it has ridiculously long gears. I just think the lean burn might work in my favor because I commute 60 miles/day and about 50miles is on flat highway. I barely come out of 5th gear and basically cruise at 60-65 mph.

The later models had larger engines.

This is exciting I have an HF of my own in the process of fixing (Cosmetic) and may eventually swap a VX motor in..!

Mine will never look pretty. It's an appliance so I can afford to make my Porsche go fast and so I can afford to keep banging my jeep on trees and rocks on the trail.
