I assume you mean a Metro LSI?

Lots of rust... hopefully not in the front unibody around the control arm mounts. That's the Achille's heel of these cars.

The 4-cyl 5MT with a kill switch should get you some great mileage.

FYI: wmjinman has been doing really well with his 4-cyl 5MT Swift (same car). http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ile-26234.html
