I am sick of the flames myself! They are vinyl, so I will take them off this summer. Nothing a heat gun can't handle :).....Thanks for the comments guys, I appriciate it.

I am not looking for a motor swap into this vehicle. I would switch to a lighter chassis first. I love the Vtec-E, why wouldn't I want to save 5-10% on gas and gain 10 hp? I think it is a novel idea.

Why would you want to do a Y5 head swap? That's the HX motor. Good for fuel economy, not so good for performance. You'd be better off with the D16Y8 head swap, that's the EX motor. Or you could just swap the whole thing, they're not that expensive.

Good luck!
