    What kind of gas mileage do those typically see? I saw constant 40mpg in my 5 speed 1.0L 3 cyl 91 Metro... thats with driving it like a teenager too.

    Best I ever got was 55 City... only happened once.

    E did a burnout with his at the Bristol autox once. I saw it. Apparantly, he did it in the upper lot while they were handing out awards, and they weren't impressed. lol.

    um... WHY? It's a hybrid... it's built for economy, why would you spend the money on an economy car to swap a motor? Sure, sleeper this... but that just doesn't seem worthwhile.

    If you want a light car to do a swap, go the normal route... CRX/EG, b18c1... the works.

    It's been done already. There's a low 10 second K20 powered Insight (still FWD) running around somewhere.

    By the way, I just read that article- I've seen it quite a few times before. I think the guy did that about 2 years ago, maybe more.

    Let's see... let me go look on Edmunds like you could have in the time it took me to type out this fragment of a sentence............

    Curb Weight: 1856 lbs. (2001 model year)

    Pull the batteries and everything else, drop in a K and you can still probably be under 1900 pounds without pulling out anything else. Strip the interior, get rid of a lot of the extra garbage that you need to be street and crash legal (like glass) and you can get the car down to something ridiculously light.
