  2. Eclipse Performance
    Hey all. I never should have bolted on that CAI. I opened the box and it can't be closed. Previously, I was obsessed with my gaming PC's performance and I have maxed that thing out with expensive parts and overclocked just about everything that can be, and it seems this infectious need to...
  3. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    I'm in the middle of a balancing act between upgrading my 09 GS Spyder and surviving Coronavirus destroying the restaurant industry I work in. If anyone is willing to cut me a deal on RRE Headers, RRE Underdrive Pulley, Megan Coilovers, Wheels, Halo Headlights, or possibly exhaust parts...
  4. Eclipse Performance
    I'm drenched in confidence today, although that might be baked on sweat because it was 90 degrees outside. I just performed my first modification on my darling Eclipse and fitted her with a cold air intake! This is probably pretty commonplace around these parts, but for me this is only my...
  5. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey guys, I need some advice on what could be causing this. 2006 GT: I put on new shocks and struts last year (OEM, and yeah, that cost a lot more than aftermarket but I liked the original ride). I put new brake rotors and pads, and replaced failing front right caliper. I replaced the 17"...
  6. Eclipse Performance
    Hi everyone, I've creeped these forums for a couple of years since getting my Eclipse for ideas on what's working for others and what I should avoid. About a year ago I saw both the AWD Eclipse that's been created and a video on a Civic Type-R with in-hub electric motors on the rear wheels to...
  7. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    The other day I went and test drove an 08 Spyder GT MT. I currently drive a 2017 Ford Fusion with the 2.0 turbo, for comparison. It felt a lot slower than I expected. It was fun regardless, but it didn't feel much faster than my Fusion. I expected a lot more oomph. More pull. More torque. The...

    Hey y'all, My name is Toush and I drive a 2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Sports Coupe. I don't know anyone who's already been registered on the site. I'm located in Sacramento, CA region. Hello to the 4G community. I look forward to getting to know more about my car. I enjoy nice exteriors and want...
  9. Tuning and Electronics
    There's already been quite a few reviews of Stayer's tune, but here's another with additional details for those still on the fence or shopping for a reflash. As mentioned in another thread, I had been dealing with codes of late, having installed RRE headers a year ago. I was waiting to pass...
  10. Tuning and Electronics
    I finally picked Stayer to do my tune and to unlock the beast! It started with some user error issues on my end trying to message Stayer. I didn't type in the number correctly add the +for his number lol. Anyways we chatted a bit, Got info and started with the process. Jan 14th we begin, I...
  11. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey guys, I was wondering about how well the 4cylinders would put up with mixing some E85 in the gas tank I know this is commonly done on Subaru WRX's because they require premium, so you GT Eclipse guys might be interested because of this. What people do for the WRX's is either mix E85 about...
  12. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey everyone, TL;DR- This post is for someone who is really trying to decide if they want to get a Tune from him or not. Also just sharing my experience, but I tend to talk a lot so strap in. To start off this post, I got a very well-paying job as an IT support specialist, which is why I...
  13. Part Reviews/Opinions
    It's pretty remarkable what an ECU tune can do. I've installed a cold air intake, gutted all 3 cats, installed a high-performance muffler, throttle body bypass, etc, etc. I've probably spent 30 hours crawling around under the car, replacing this, adjusting that...and then Stas (Stayer) comes...
  14. Eclipse Performance
    Hey guys, I know there’s various posts about exhausts, and they all have great info, but I wanna start this one, mostly because it’ll be specific for my setup, and I’m sure a lot of you have experimented more with different exhausts since those threads have been made. So I bought my third 2006...
  15. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hey, I picked up a 2009 GT6 last summer and I love it.. I was driving today and noticed that clutch was slipping a bit but figured I could continue the drive and check it later.. Moments later my clutch pedal felt like it stuck down when I pressed it so I stuck my foot under it and it came up...
  16. Motorsports (Racing)
    So my friend works for a subbie dealer here in NC and just got a 2018 wrx base model. Its been about 2 months now since he's had it and i've given him some time to get use to the car. He just ordered an exhaust and wanted me to hear it. So I thought to myself why dont we do some quick pulls and...
  17. Interior and Exterior Modifications (Show)
    Alrighty, so i am having a hard time deciding whether i want to buy some coil overs or a carbon fiber hood. My thoughts on both for you to help me decide. I'm already sitting on tein s-tech springs soooo! If i buy a hood i will be able to vent all that excess heat out and get rid of some...
  18. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Finally broke down and bought a CAI. This wasn't my first CAI install, so I kinda already knew the ins and outs of what I needed to do. It wasn't any more complex than I expected. Just take your time and look where everything is. You can technically do it without taking off the wheel, but you...
  19. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I need your guy's opinion should I change the timing belt with the engine in or pull the motor? I've got all the equipment required plus a 10 ton overhead chain winch to pull it. I'm just trying to figure out it would be easier and faster. I'm assuming pulling the engine but I figured I'd...
  20. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    This i believe is my second or third post. So hello everyone. So I picked up an 07 Eclipse GT in burgundy (not sure what they call this color) with 110k on it on the 2nd of october. I have always love the look of this car. Honestly i would still trade it for a jap evo but that wolnt happen...
