Hello all i am new to this board however have been intreasted in honda and their insight for quite some time. I have never actually driven a hybrid so i guess i dont know much about them. I was wondering if anyone has ever concidered engine swapping in the insight, it is somthing i have wanted to do for a while, too build either i higher h.p. insight or a better economy insight. I just read up on toyotas hyybrid system and it seems far more advanced and efficient than hondas. So the questin i have is could somone swap the toyotas posibly superior engine and drivetrain into the insights light weight and low drag design and if they could what type of fuel economy could be expected. Also i was wondering if anyone knew of a good informative sight about the prious that had technical specs kinda like this site does. I read on this site that in japan they have the option of running on just the electric motors which must mean that a large amount of the power must come from electricity and that the storage capacity of the batteries must be quite a bit. From what i know the insight has a relitvly small electrical storage capacity and relies on its gas motor for most of its power. What i am thinking is if you could design a plug in type system w/ the priouses drivetrain along with the japanese style electric only mode, and finaly a car that doesnt actually need a lot of energy to get around and you could have the cleanest hybrid around!
