Hey everyone, just saying hi, I am a former go-fast style modder, just coming out of owning several camaros, turbo supra, mr2, etc. I now have a 99 mazda protege 1.6/M that i am going to start ecomodding...it sounds more fun and challenging than just trying to make power. just thought id introduce myself!

Welcome to the site. You are correct in that increasing FE is more fun and challenging then modding for power. I think a lot of members here came from the power modding crowd.

Welcome to the site. I think you'll find ecomodding & driving for efficiency to be as much of a challenge as the speed side of things.

I'm in Manahawkin

I own a soon to be 9 second Buick Regal T-type as well as my 100mpg Ninja 250... so i guess you can say i'm from the go fast crowd, and have the best of both worlds
