  1. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I fixed the play in my shifter completely. Managed to make a plastic spacer (43mm or 1 11/16 od, 37mm or 1 15/32 id, Width as desired) underneath the lower ball seat, to raise it a mm or so. and then dremel out the upper retainer for the pivot ball a mm as well. A clean up and regrease with...

    Having a hard time getting any info or specifics for this little bushing that goes inside this link, anyone have a link where to get one?
  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    G'day, I didn't drive my car for about 3 months and now that I'm back in it the shifter is rather tight. It has been slowly loosening up with driving but I'm curious to know if anyone has had this problem and what they did to solve it? Thanks
  4. Problem Reports
    Hello, my 06 gs 2.4L will not properly go into 4th gear. All other gears work as they should. But when I shift into 4th gear and give acceleration the gear shifter slams into the neutral position... I’ve noticed that if I granny shift into 4th gear and hold the shift knob for about 3-4 seconds...

    Hey, my name is Ale (pronounces all-ay) and I'm a relatively new 4G Eclipse owner. I drive a manual 2012 GS Sport and I love it. I live in the Northern Virginia area and I'm looking to get into the car scene around here. Cars are a new interest too but I'm excited and looking forward to learning...

    FS - 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT Short Shifter Kit I have a short shifter kit I bought for my 06' Mitsubishi Eclipse GT. I purchased it from TWMPerformance.com several years ago. I've just had it stored in the box as I was too nervous to install it. I've changed my mind about the modification...

  10. Eclipse Performance
    Hey Guys, so I have an '09 GT, and I thought it would be smart to impulsively buy the GT Ralco Short Shifter from ACI w/o properly looking into it. After I bought it, I found out from various threads that the GT shifter wasn't as desirable for the GT (go figure). In the process, I had the GT...
  11. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I took an old bushing mod that the older evo and dsmers made popular. Our GS has the evo 8/9/dsm bushings while the GT has the evo X bushings. Favorite mod to tie in my short shifter and BLOX style knob.
  12. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I broke mine since they're plastic pieces of crap. Does anyone use anything other than the stupid stock one? Or know where to get a replacement? I know there are solid ones for other cars like the s2000 but I really want to know if the ball sizes are close enough. Anyone? :) I recently...
  13. Audio & Lighting
    I just bought a 2012 GS today. I want to switch all lights inside and outside to LEDs. Can anyone tell me what they all take and how many I would need? Including the HVAC, gauges and shifter. I keep seeing different answers on different sites. Thanks!

    Looking at some aftermarket shift knobs and can't decide on what looks best and is better than stock. So post pics of your shift knobs, lets see em! Also, was looking at some metal shift knobs, how do they "feel" in heat and cold weather...up here where i live it gets to around 30 celsius in the...
  15. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So since I have owned my 4g eclipse for the past 3 or so months, the shifter has been stiff and giving my a weird sort of issue. When you go and sit in the car in the morning, the shifter will be "Normal" and return back to center, still relatively stiff but it does return to center. After...
  16. Tuning and Electronics
    So, as you may or may not know, Brian J developed a module several years back that allows people with automatics to use the steering wheel audio control buttons as "paddle shifters", in the sense that you would use the buttons to change gears, rather than the stock center console shifter. I...
  17. Driveline
    So I've recently installed a new shifter. One of the install instructions was "grease shifter cup/ball" but wasn't specific as to with what. I used what I had (dielectric grease) and completed the install. Either I didn't put enough, or it's not compatible, but shifts are notchy and require more...
  18. Driveline
    Trying to put my TWM shifter back together and I've run into a big problem. I can't get the pins to line up with the plastic bit that cups the ball protruding from the shifter. There's also a funny looking spring that I can't remember where it goes. Please help.
  19. 2000-2005 Eclipse (General 3G)
    Hi, first time posting. Have 2001 eclipse gt. Today it ran and Drove fine, until it was shut off. When we tried to start it again, it wouldn't turn over. Starter was sticking. Bumped ignition a few times, eventually started, ran, and restarted fine when shut off. But, now the automatic...
  20. Car Care and Detailing (Shine)
    Just bought a 2012 Spyder and it's it pretty darn good shape overall, but one of the big annoyances to me is the shifter cover. It's scratched up. Any thoughts on removing or minimizing/removing the scratches? Every time I stare at it, I get irritated - LOL. Debated on looking up how easy...
