    originally i was able to top my speed out at about 120-125 on my gs. i have a mid muffler delete and a cold air intake. after i installed the intake my top speed seemed to drop down to 115 and i couldn't push it any higher. this doesn't make sense seeing as how intakes are supposed to improve...
  2. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I'm asking for opinion from some of our more advanced wrench turners out there. I've been watching a lot of reviews on the new TorqAmp electric turbo and I have to say, aside from the price, it looks really interesting. I am not real sure if our GT motor (6G75) is considered a "low compression"...
  3. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    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...

    I have a 2007 GS with the 2.4 liter engine, 132K miles. My son is the primary (only) driver of this car and it died on him on the highway yesterday. He claims the steering "locked up" but I assume he just means it got hard to steer after the loss of power steering. We were a few miles from home...

    Anyone done it before? I have a rusted fuel filler neck and prepared for tank inlet to be rusted as well. Hoping not, but prepared for the worst.

    When you get under the car and unscrew the magnetic bolt, How much liquid drops out of the system? the manual says 2.1qt's but the car definitely dropped more than that. >.>
  7. Problem Reports
    So my gas cap tether broke and I bought a new one at autozone and it came with a bunch of different sized push clips to hold it on. As I was testing to see which one fit it popped out and went right down my gas tank. Is there any way to get it out? Will it cause any problems like melting or...

    I've got several persistent DTC's one of which is P0442; EVAP System Leak (small leak). Dealer smoke tested the system and said there was smoke coming from the fuel tank seam and filler neck area. They claim the fuel tank requires replacement which was quoted at $3k. The car has 335,000 KM on...
  9. Problem Reports
    So, originally, my car was perfect. However, a few weeks ago the brake pedal went to the floor and i had no brakes...i pumped the pedal and everything was fine. About a week later, happened again and almost rear ended someone. But this time, i had no brakes at all and when i released the pedal...
  10. Problem Reports
    Out of the blue I was driving and the battery lamp flickered on! Great. Then I noticed when the Bat lamp came on all gauges would go to zero. I'm still driving along so the engine operation appears unaffected. I changed my HUD 6mo. ago so maybe this is a problem. So I went home, pulled out my...
  11. Problem Reports
    So about a month ago my battery light started going on and off. My Battery from Advanced Auto is only a year and half old. Then one day at a red light the car just completely shut down. Engine and all electrical gone. After about 30 seconds of panic the car finally fired up and I made it to...
  12. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    i just recently started noticing my RPM shudder maybe a month ago when i was running freeway speeds(85mph) and came to a redlight i stopped and noticed the RPMs dropped to 300-400 and shuddered as if it was failing to keep idle, after the shudder it went to normal idle at 600, no lights or...
  13. Problem Reports
    I recently bought a 2006 Eclipse Gt, knowing full well that the AC was not working. It was a stick, it looked clean, 100k miles, so I went ahead and got it. A month later I love the car, but of course I haven't gotten around to fixing the A/C. I have read just about every A/C post in the...
  14. Interior and Exterior Modifications (Show)
    Hey everyone, it's been a while. Since my last post I've gotten the RRE headers on my GT, and I just want to say everyone who said it'd be a 4hour job is full of it...it was a nightmare. Moving on... Now that I've dropped a decent amount of money on performance modifications, I'd like to start...
  15. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    Ok so this isn't quite a megasale, but I am looking to get rid of some 4g parts laying around. If you don't see it posted here, then I don't have it and it was sold with the car. SE Spoiler (A33): SOLD Broken-In SE Lip (A33): $150 Yakima Roof Rack: SOLD Yakima...

    STOCK Ride New rims "VISUAL FITMENT Wanted to start a thread for newbies like me trying to find the right rim and tire size for their stock rides. There is constant confusion from tire and fender clearence, brake clearence, and offset and much more. I searched and searched for a post like...
  17. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I was driving to class today and out of nowhere most of my dashboard lights came on (Check Engine, Traction Control, ASC Off, etc.) simultaneously as both my Tachometer and Speedometer dropped to 0. No performance change in the car, so it's not an issue with the engine. But I was unable to see...
  18. Do It Yourself Guides (Howto)
    On all my images, the red arrows indicate points with clips. There are no tools needed for this guide Step 1, remove the radio faceplate. Grab it at the bottom and gently pull straight back. The bottom will disconnect fairly easily, the you can rock it for the top to come loose. Do not pull the...
  19. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    About a week ago my GT started riding rough and making a noise similar to rod knock on my way home. I pulled over and checked my oil just to make sure it wasn't leaking and causing the engine to run on low oil. The level was fine so i kept driving home, about 5 miles as i was switching gears the...
  20. Eclipse Graveyard
    Long story short, this happened: Thankfully, insurance to the rescue. Dropped it off at the body shop today, but that means I don't get to slam it with my new Tein springs that are coming in this weekend :( Could have been worse, I suppose.
