I am in! The cold weather is sure hurting my FE. And I'm at the limit of driving techniques, given I commute on the interstate. So that leaves mod's as my only hope of achieving gains. I did get some of those parts installed from the junkyard, but unfortunately, the glovebox and console latches, ABS, and the sun visor don't do anything for FE. But I feel better :-) I did adjust the door which was bent from a wreck. That stopped the wind whistling through on the highway, and should have a minor aerodynamic affect. But more important, the drivers seat isn't wet when it rains, anymore. :-)

First mod has to be more grill blockage: the engine ran in about 130dF on the highway this morning
