Hey all, new to the site. looking into getting a CRX over here in Ireland and ecomodding it, sadly no HF's were sold in any european country(as far as I can tell), so my work is cut out for me.

I'm presently torn between doing a (HF)D15b6 engine swap into the stock CRX's running around here, which come with the crappy D15B1, or swapping the (Civic VX)D15z1 engine into it, which I've read some on this site have had fairly good success with. Even in the adirondack montains competition!

The winner of that competition achieved 118 mpg with mostly aeromods on a stock CRX HF while 3rd place was ~80 mpg in a CRX with the Civic VX engine swapped in.

I'm curious if Ben's red CRX(VX) that scored 3rd place couldn've achieved the HF's 118 mpg also with the very same aeromods & low resistance tires that Chang Ho Kim implemented?

This seemed like a good place to get a first post in. After taking a quick look through the posts in this thread, I feel a little out of place! I work in elementary music education. Hopefully I won't be too lost in the sea of engineers and techs!

New Guy

I'm a new guy here - just signed up today.
Another one lost in the sea of engineers and techs
Civil engineer graduated in 2012, currently working as a Construction Estimator.
Want to build my own homes in the future:
1) Micro-home on wheels
2) Tree-house
3) Hobbit-house
Lived in apartments all my life, so I'm used to small living spaces. During college I had a bachelor apartment which I shared with my dog, snake, 2 geckos, big fat frog, 2 tarantulas, and a 50 gallon fishtank with 25-30 fish.
Also since moving to Canada about 10 years ago, I've noticed that North Americans suffer from the consumerism disease (which I'm afraid I've caught too). Big houses filled with tons of junk, garages filled with junk - INSTEAD OF CARS, big trucks for small pen***s, big appetites, and of course big bellies.
I think that switching to smaller cars, smaller homes with less stuff in them, smaller appetites and smaller debts are the better way.

Real eyes
Real lies
