    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)
    I decided to leave the Mitsubishi camp after 2 years. I really hate to say it but its been a aweful ride. My 09 GT only has 58000 miles and I have already put more money into it making repairs than I did on a Saturn I drove as a winter beater with 150000 miles. Its getting harder and harder to...

    Okay, what I want to start here, if possible, is a deep and serious discussion of which car you think would win in a drag race considering the following criteria: - The three cars have the same tires, and they are the stickiest non-slick tires available at the moment. - All cars have the same...

    i have searched the forums and even looked on google etc.. and have not come up with a tutorial or even really good photos of a stripped down interior for a 2006 gs and/or how to do it properly. i mean full strip down, back-seats,door panels so on and so forth. i guess my point of this post is...

    I know its not an eclipse race story, but i figured you guys need a little diversity in your versus section in combination with my lack of anything to do at the moment, so why not. This is one of the last races ill have before installing the supercharger kit. Background story: Ever since my...

    I hate things on my car that think they're smarter than me, which is one reason I'll never buy one of those punk models that can parallel park themselves. That's for fake blondes who own an iPhone. Anyways, I'm willing to bet the abs hydraulic unit in the front of our car is a pretty decent...

    not sure who has seen this vid but its from RIPP mods N/A GS with cai, headers, high-flow cat, cat-back. and it is using the brat box as a piggyback which just confused the shit outta me. the brat box supposedly sends signals to the ECU to eliminate the process where the ECU will reverse out...

    I've decided to change my seats out for weight reduction and have narrowed it down to 3 seats that I like. My only issue is will they fit me and will they fit in the car? I'm 5'8" 165lbs and have a 32" waist. Price isn't a factor. -Sparco Evo 2 Plus -Recaro SPG -Bride Vios Low MAX From what...
