  1. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So yeah I'd been tuning on a mixture for forever and finally made the full switch to e85. I saved $12 just on the first tank! It has better drivability, more torque, more HP, not that bad mileage (adjusting my driving has more than made up for the loss and actually gained 1mpg over when I was on...

  3. Part Reviews/Opinions
    I ordered one of these off Amazon last week, and it just showed up. Thought it may be helpful if I did a review, seeing as they're on sale for U$80 right now http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002U2E9F8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 It arrived as advertised, of which I then...
  4. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I have noticed a pattern on these and other forums. People think a CAI or new filter will improve MPG. This is false and to confirm it myself I read a very extensive case study I will have to link later (its nearly 6am and Ive had some wine) Your ECU will regulate the gasoline sent to the...

    Mitsubishi Prepares Third-Gen Pikes Peak EV Racers - Motor Trend WOT Now, if they could turn the power down to the high 300 horsepower to low 400 horsepower marks to extend battery life (or remove the motors from the front axles and run the rear motors at 300 horsepower), or, do what I have...

    Hello there! Just wanted to make my first post on this awesome board. I`m Xavier from the Netherlands and I have recently purchased an imported `06 Eclipse GS with just 70K miles on it. It will be my second car (for sunny days) besides my Mitsubishi Carisma Shogun SE. I`m very happy with it...
  7. Problem Reports
    These issues are not major but annoying and I fear could be a prelude to larger problems to come. First there is the erratic idle, sometimes its very steady around 550-600 rpm and other times it'll fluctuate, nothing drastic usually around 100-150 variants; it will also get hung up sometimes...
  8. Problem Reports
    Dear Club4G, For a few weeks now I have noticed a subtle gasoline scent in my car. The occurrence is very inconsistent and happens at all stages of driving aside from sitting at idle. I took her to Firestone and had a full inspection run with emphasis on looking for a fuel leak. All they could...

    Fuel Economy On My GT I was very impressed yesterday with the fuel economy obtained from my GT. I realize that fuel economy is not the true focus of this car, but with premium gasoline being around $4.20 a gallon, it becomes somewhat of a talking point. I installed the ProFlow Throttle Body...
  13. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I'm impressed really. This is the second time my car has given me above average mileage. Normally, my car gives up to 300 miles from Full to the 1/4 gas mark. To my joy, this is the 2nd fill where my car has surpassed that mark by a lot of miles. I let it get to Empty, so the low fuel light...

  17. GS
    So it would be best to use pure oxygen instead of nitrogen if it wasn't so heavy basically. The thing is oxygen is free. We don't have to buy it in bulk at one time, we can dispose or take when ever we want. This is why a custom pure oxygen tank would work. They are assuming that you are going...

  19. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I know this is a newb question, but I just bought a GS today, and it's low on gas, and I need to fill it up with gas tomorrow morning before the dealership opens. Also, where can I find a manual? I have a feeling the dealership won't provide me with one. Lastly, if the battery to the keychain...
  20. Eclipse Performance
    Hi, Today I intalled the outlaw thermoblock, change the spark plugs (model NGK-BKR7EIX) and the tanabe axel back. When I tried to turn on the car, the car turned off, as if the air to the motor escaped and smelled to gasoline. Are the spark plugs the correct ones? Then I removed everything...
