clearance

  1. Eclipse Performance
    I'm ready to bite the bullet on my first major modification, the DC Sports CAI4006. Unfortunately for me, I've got an 09 with foglights and apparently it means I'm bound for clearance issues. Browsing here and on Amazon comments, it seems a simple solution is to add an elbow between the intake...
  2. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    I have a set of 87mm 4G69 pistons, never been used. They're ~U$650 retail, I'll sell them U$575 shipped in continental states or Canada provinces. These are the extreme duty ones, not the standard forged pistons I didn't use them because I wanted to get perfect piston to wall clearance for my...

    So I live in Oregon and like to visit the coast a lot and camp, but as probably every one knows it rains a bit here so I really don't like pitching a tent. Heres what I would like to do, since the back of the eclipse has a TON of room when the seats are down I was thinking of converting it into...
  4. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I just bought my 4G and the previous owner had it lowered. It looks super clean and I don't scratch it on speed bumps, but I often scratch exiting plazas on downhill dips and also on unprecedented small potholes or random dips on regular roads etc. Here and there I'll hit it super hard going...

    Hi, Folks I have a 2008 Spyder GTP....I believe the rims in back are 9.5". Currently running 265/30/19 in back and 255/35/19 in front. I believe it's dropped 2" using Super Stock springs. Would the 305/30/19's work? It looks like there is plenty of clearance height-wise...seems that these...

    Hey guys, I'm replacing my front downstream O2 sensor today, but the clearance I get on the front for the O2 sensor socket is much different from the rear O2 due to the heatshield? Not sure if the heatshield extends all the way to the bottom. I heard people actually using ratchet wrenches to...

    Hi folks, I wanted to replace the factory bulbs in my Eclipse with these: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01M7ZVDU8/?coliid=I1CKHQHKJB3MAW&colid=9SPRHF2CC4Y4&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it All the videos I watched, demonstrated the change on a 2006 or 2008 model but I have a fully loaded 2012 Eclipse...

    Hi friends! Continue your project. I wrote earlier that for the construction of necessary engineering approach. That is, first done structural calculations. After that begins the process of compiling details. In this topic I want to talk about the pistons. To obtain a power of about 300 HP (N/A)...
  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hello, I don't own an eclipse, but I do own a Galant with a 4g69 engine. I am at 110,000 miles and was curious if I need a Valve clearance adjustment done on the car. What was your experience? When did you tried doing them, were they out of specs, how did you know you needed them? I just want...

    Hello all, I have a major issue where I live. there are many dips turning off of the main roads into driveways, or restaurants, or any other company or organization building really. I need a body kit or a website that will give me the most ground clearance as possible. The previous owner of my...

    So my buddy bought H11 LEDs for his Tahoe but they will not fit because of a clearance issue. Our Fog lights are H11 so I thought this would plug and place nice but they are 80watt. Its has DRIVE not a Ballast. Does this matter? 40w Per Bulb EDIT: here they are...
  13. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    I have to replace the Right Front Wheel hub due to a worn bearing. The axle shaft is pretty much seized inside the hub and a hub puller and impact gun have not worked and neither has a sledge hammer. I have since also ordered a replacement axle shaft with the anticipation it will get damaged...
  14. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I just finished installing the Injen CAI on my Eclipse. Looks, sounds, and runs great. I have a question that I cant seem to find an answer for though. The silicone tubing on the second part of the intake was a pain in the ass to slide in and it currently touches the transmission and the coolant...

  18. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    Hey all, I recently ordered XXR 530's for my car. 18x7.5 however they've been on back order. So the company offered me 18x8.75 for the same price to go along with the tires I purchased with the rims. I am lowered on H-Techs. These are the tires I had ordered: Falken Ziex ZE-912-235/45R18 Will...
  19. Problem Reports
    I have developed an issue, where I hear a grinding sound, not so much a clicking, more of a grinding sound. I thought it was the wheel against ice/slush build up, but I chipped that all away and still hear the sound. I try to reproduce the problem, but can't. It seems to happen when I turn in...
  20. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Battery install very fairly simple-too about 30mins. CAI is the EBAY model from Insys-USA. I've had it on for a week and so far so good. Overall product quality is good. The install is a bit of a pain-particularly removing the resonator once you get the top portion lined up. You have to jack up...
