Default Feeling like a monkey ready to get shot off into space...

Hey guys, just got myself an 03 Accord EX V6, my first Honda and I'm pretty psyched bout it. Figured I'd join up so I could pick at all your brains for regular maintenance questions and modification ideas. As is I'm very happy with my purchase, no problems besides a busted front and passenger side motor mount which me and my bud just replaced today fairly simply. Already had tranny recall taken care of and scheduling to have the ignition switch and windshield wiper motor taken care of soon... gotta love free work. Besides all that I think my main interest here would be any suggestions on mods towards more gas efficiency.

I'm trying to get my head around your screen name vs. your last sentence about fuel efficiency...
There's one thing that has BY FAR the most influence over fuel economy, way more than any mod that a normal person would want. It's how you operate your own right foot.
(sorry, but I just had to say it)
Anyway, WELCOME!
