    I moved to Michigan finally.
    Yea, you were all right, it sucks and is cold.
    From 80F to 25F is teh suck...only here until May... not too bad i guess.
    On the bright side, i managed to score 49.4mpg thru New Mexico with my car fully packed and a passenger with 90 octane from Chevron.
    Most of the trip was 40+mpg.. not too bad for b16 gearing i'd say.
    No snow on the ground right now, which i think is a good thing.

    you can run your motor very lean at 2-5% throttle and its perfectly safe.
    the insight does something like 24:1 a/f's

    new mexico is all flat. he was in that throttle range the majority of the trip.
    bam, gas mileage like a mofo.

    I'm in west central in Muskegon.
    I'm here until May because I don't want to be here any longer than that...
    My sister is having a baby in May too, and i told her i'd be back in time for that as well.
    Yea, thanks B, super leetness chips...too bad you're outta the game now.
    NM isn't ALL flat at all, i thought maybe it was the elevation *7000ft+ and the not driving on it too hard.
    After that the best i hit was 44mpg, but most of the trip was 40+ and only once was 29mpg innercity in Oklahoma City stop-n-go.
    On the way home i want to try for 50+ [​IMG]
    Oh yea, it was a b16(a2) with 95kish miles on it, ran perfect the whole trip.
    My GF's single cam 97 civic with less stuff was pulling 35mpg :ph34r:


    OK!!!!!!!!!!

    I went thru South Bend, are you around there?
    The import scene != existing here...

    Hmm.. not anything real interesting... there was a fatal rollover just outside of phoenix we drove by, the dude was laying there under a blanket and his leg was shaped like the letter R...
    other than that, the trip went smooth, no bad weather until indianapolis.
    I'm down to meet up somewhere in a few weeks... [​IMG]

    lol I dont' mind small towns...I don't like loads of traffic. Anyways ya we should meet up. I will probaly have my turbo setup sooner then what I thought becuase im not building up my block anymore. I took all my door panels off yesterday and I'm trying to get the interior ready for making it black lol. Engine I can't do anything with becuase 1. I have no help. and 2. I have no place to put the engine after im done becuase the garage is filled with crap from the other house. and 3. I don't have a cherry picker to get the damn engine out [​IMG]
