    Wondering if anyone has heard about the Elio exhaust system. I wonder if it will be stainless or if that would be an option.

    If Elio qualified for CAFE credits and the program continues, I am sure Ford and Elio could work out an agreement.

    They could start with the Ford engine and make their own when they start to get sales and revenue. A contract for 100,000 engines would tide them over,I should think.

    it has long been reported that motorcycles/autocycles do not qualify for CAFE credits .... some efforts have been noted to change this, has anyone seen anything official about any success in this area

    There was a time when having a shop bend stainless pipe and install it was actually cheaper than having a shop put on OEM plain steel.
