I'm assuming this is still the VX? Is this an actual VX or a VX drivetrain in another civic? Looking forward to the HX results. Sounds promising so far.

HX is being tuned now should have similar results as the VX. I know alot of HX owners are holding their breaths for these results, It will be worth the wait!

the previous car that was finished was a VX engine in a EG (92-95) Si civic hatch, fully loaded car with all options (sunroof, power everything)
this had 3 passengers and 3 suitcases going on a holiday. and I cant stress this enough it was only using set cruise technique

any work on non Honda Cars?

What sort of engine swap options or ecu programing options might my 2006 Matrix have? I can get 60-76 MPG with the car now, but would like to take that over 100 MPG

No disrespect intended by this, but what eco modding is being done? It seems like only tunes are being done, did I miss something?

Tuning for economy IS ecomodding! My V-AFC has netted me a 10%mpg improvement Without any of the "typical" ecomods done here... can't wait to see what additional gains I'll be making with the additional mods I have planned in the future!

Tweaking the ecu is a mod. Just a hard one. Good job for those who can pull it off.

So it is solely CPU tuning, nothing else?

As previously stated ECU tuning for ECO purposes has netted some pretty impressive MPG ECO numbers. I am ECO MODDING the entire way the car performs, and when i say entire i mean the nitty gritty IE... there isn't a function on the whole car that hasn't been tuned, down to when the fan kicks on to keep the car running at different temps at different loads. Once the ECU is tuned the owner of the car can modify it any way he or she pleases. From doing nothing but installing the ECU to full on gutted out boat tail and pizza pans.

very impressive. im currently doing a vx swap into my 4 door lx so it will have power everything and cruise. check out the mod i did on the second page, you can have a cruise light and shift indicator light. not somthing you need but the little touches make the difference.

How is the tuning with the HX coming along? Are you having any success using the stock P2N ecu? If a P28 ecu would be used would there be a convenient way to monitor parameters like engine load, throttle position sensor, and a lean burn indicator? I currently use a scan gauge 2 which connects using the OBD2 port to monitor these areas to maintain maximum fuel economy. Wondering if there is a jumper harness for the OBD2 port or if anything can be done to use the Scan gauge or ultra gauge or if there is other options to view this data. Thanks!
