Swap shop Toronto? wanna join mpg club!

Tried today with a good friend/mechanic to wire away my CEL, (code 12, 20, 41), started with a code 48 a year ago. Anyway I'm giving up and I want to take my CX with VTEC-E engine swap, to an experienced Toronto swap shop.
2 years ago I swaped this engine in for the legendary "lean-burn", 60mpg performance, but so far all I've gotten is around 30 mpg. The engine light's been on the whole time, I've added all the right bits; exhaust manifold, 5 wire O2, EGR, VTEC, EGR solenoid box, P07 ECM.:frusty:
Anyway If anyone out there can recommend a Toronto swap shop who understands these totally UNperformance engines I'ld really appreciate it.

I'm sure if the check engine light is on, lean burn, and all the other cool fuel saving goodies on that engine are disabled. That's why your mileage was so poor.
