Like you, I had a goal, it's not a goal for others unless they choose it.
I enjoyed your thread and understand the need for speed. I have a 340 slapstick Dodge Challenger that is all numbers matching, engine and transmission, has 3.91 gears and runs 11.6 at 117 mph. Its race weight is 3,825 lbs. and even at that it's 60 foot time is 1.66 seconds, it gets 14 mpg. That is two miles to the gallon better than it got when it was stock. Efficiency comes in many forms. I took it to Vegas a couple of years ago where it won the MOPAR Muscle magazine dyno challenge with 400 horsepower and 453 ft lbs of torque to the ground. It also won third in the car show. It has air conditioning, and is so user friendly that my mom drives it. I built it and the CRX VX totally, no outside help as with all my cars and trucks. (No money!) You can see a small picture of it in the garage along with my Toyota SR5 and 1968 Dart (which I painted, again because of too many bad experiences with other peoples' workmanship.)
I am watching with interest your upward momentum on mileage with the sleeper VX.
Thanks for the contact.

Was there no HF in 88-91? This would be a much easier swap. I think I would recommend people starting with any 88+ CRX, swapping the motor, and doing some weight reduction. If you go with 90-91 you get independent rear suspension vs the solid rear axle.[/QUOTE]
