Do you strictly eco mod the engines or do you eco mod the body for aerodynamics too?

Thanks for the replies.

We have been focusing mostly on the engine and ECO performance side of car. most of our customers at this time are looking for a mostly OEM looking car that can get amazing MPG. We use some weight savings mods, nothing too drastic to keep the car comfortable.

As far as the turbo systems go, it is using the idea of a combination of recycling the exhaust gas to keep hot temps and also to keep the engine under 0 realitive load. And a BUNCH of R&D and ECU Tunning.

we have a garage and i have been thinking lately about doing the same thing!! i would specialize in civics but also offer other economic cars that are in a very affordable price range that have proven mpg numbers. i have all sorts of ideas like making hypermiling pamphlets to give driving tips as well as hypermiling driving lessons. i hope your venture goes well and i will follow the thread.

Too bad so few people do diesel w/ MT swaps into eco cars or even the MT swap part.

Every vehicle I own would be better with an MT, even my C-car which could use a nice 3 on the tree.

Well this is a good option for people who don't have a garage stuffed full of all manor of tools.
I can see plug and play eco modded ECUs being popular.
Collect lots and lots of 3rd party data so you cant be accused of being a scammer, because there are a lot of people with no mechanical know how that are convinced OEM fuel economy can not be improved upon.

Looking forward to the ECU tuning on the HX!!!
Good luck with your development and testing. I know several people who have paid $4000+ for a low mileage/rust free VX. If your prototypes are able to achieve the same or better results in a newer generation car, you should have a winning combination that will sell well. You could even offer 4 door models which were never offered with a lean burn feature to be more family friendly! i personally would be interested in one of those. Especially a 99-2000 EX sedan! That would be sweet!

It is also appealing to people who value their time. I have a garage full of tools and have I swapped the engine and trans in my civic (as well as many other cars), but would not be opposed to spending 5k on a car with only 40-60k miles that can reliably get proven 50 – 70 mpg. If they get the results they are expecting, there will be a lot more interest in this topic.
