    Dump the original engine and swap in a Renesis. 240hp in that bitch would be awesome. Not to mention the Renesis is a much better engine to start with, on account of some 40 years' advancement in the technology.

    it should have about 240whp right now. this one will be fine for now.

    plus the renesis is pretty damn expensive, and i dontk now how well it would work with a carb, and i dont really want to invest more into it to get a haltech.

    What I meant was to replace the engine and everything connected to it (except the transaxle) with Renesis parts. That includes using fuel injection. Why bother with carburetors anymore? They can't adjust themselves automatically to changing demands -- you HAVE to tweak them from time to time. Considering that there are people who know vastly more about how the inside of my engine works than I ever will (because they designed it for years and years), I'd rather have a little digital copy of their brain under my hood, keeping an eye on things and making sure the engine works as well as it can.

    Drool. I wish I could find an RX-2 or 3. Where the hell do you guys find 'em for sale? I've had a hard time finding them, even when I lived in California.

    I'd love to have a Daily Driver RX-2 here in Missouri.
