    1991 Honda Civic CRX / Project Abeille ZX2 / My Future Car PC Project!

    This morning I was driving to work in HiJackZX1 and the gas light came on, again. I then came to the conclusion that in the future I will have to get a more fuel efficient car. With me being broke though, I cant buy a new car, nor do I really want one. I have to have a Car PC in this bad boy, but it will be very, very simple. It will only do basic things, not the complication like the HiJackZX1. Simple audio setup in a 4.1 configuration, GPS, WiFi, Sprint Internet, and single screen setup.

    I decided to try to find a Honda Civic CRX. It has always been a small car that I am fond of. As a teen my friend had a CRX with turbo and everything. I was amazed how a small car could throw you into the back of your seat and handle very very well. The other reason is that the car gets really good gas mileage. I have read about 30-35 city and about 50 highway. To say, that is awesome. I will try to get the last year make, which I think was 1991. This of course is a far off project that I may get after I pay my Ford Focus off (my parents drive that car now and I have no interest in it). Most CRX go for about $4,000.00 and under. I am sure I can go lower though.

    Expect to see this updated in the future!

    I think I will edit that out until I finish the HiJack, then start this project.

    There were three different engines available in the CRX, the HF was the fuel economy version (lightweight, small wheels, like 68HP) which is probably the fuel economy you are thinking of. The standard version and the Si both get heavier and nicer, and won't hit 50MPG. Plus even in a car that isn't much over 2000 lbs, the ~110HP of the Si isn't a lot, figure with any engine swap/mods for more power you are looking at around 30MPG combined as a best case, 35 if you are lucky. So yes it still beats a Durango, but there will be no tossing you back in your seat if you want 50MPG.

    HUSH, dont mess up my dreams..... lol.... Yea, I started to figure that.... I am going to try to buy the reprogrammer for my Durango and see how much better fuel economy it can give me. If im not happy then this project is still on.... Another issue I am having is that there is not alot of CRXs for sale. The ones I am finding are either automatic or all destroyed looking :-\

    might as well plan on swapping in a B-series motor if you get a CRX - they are cheap now and in Miami I'd imagine you can't throw a rock without hitting someone who has done a B-series swap in Honda. If you do a swap you get the 5-speed with the motor.

    I noticed that on the very few i did find, they mentioned they did some kind of JBL swap.... have no idea what that means.... Is that what your talking about?
