  1. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I do not have a 4G yet but if/when I do I plan on getting a GT with a manual transmission. I had heard there wasn't much that could be done to it. Maybe I have read bad info, I am not sure. If the V-6 starts at 260HP (I think I read), how much power can be added to it? What type of mods...
  2. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Last week I ordered the AIT "Blackout-3" body kit (front bumper and sideskirts only). It's basically just a higher quality version of the Duraflex Eternity body kit ("fiberglass-reinforced polymer" instead of all fiberglass). I have been talking with local custom body shops to get quotes on...
  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So around last year I got my first car, bought myself a 2008 4g Eclipse GS, and albeit a nice car I feel as if it's not for me. I have found a 1997 Eclipse GSX in real nice shape with a decent amount of performance/engine modifications done by local shops. Is it worth it to sell the 4g for the...
  4. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi Everyone, I purchased an 08 Eclipse for my teenage son last year. Let's just say he has well lived up to the stereotypes on young male drivers! I have put a small fortune into repairs on this car already. He is moving on to a truck now. Given that I have put a lot more into it than I...
  5. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I know it is been 10years (Lol) for the Emission Recall about the 2006 Eclipse GT Catalytic Converter. I am living in California. A week ago I did the smog check, it didnt pass says the cats is not working properly. I had the "service engine light" on for more than six months, couldnt remember...
  6. Problem Reports
    I mistakenly posted this in the wrong forum so I'm posting it here now. I have an '06 GS with manual tranny and a short time ago, I started hearing a humming/grinding noise. It sounded and acted just like a wheel bearing. After doing the swerving test and jacking it up with both front wheels off...
  7. Problem Reports
    Hey all, I bought a 07 Eclipse back in March with 72k on the odometer. About 2 months later I started having some problems shifting. It's sometimes hard to get into first, and shifting into second sometimes results in a LOT of grinding, I can feel the gears spinning through my shift nob. When...
  8. Problem Reports
    Hi everyone, I hope someone here can help. Having an issue with my 4g 2006 GS 2.4. Hope someone can help. I'm really sorry this has to be my first post - I'm no car guy (but trying to become one!) but I know I can fix this myself. Two weeks ago, on the day I moved house I was driving back to...

    Greeting all. I have a stock 2007 silver Spyder GT with 85,000 miles that I bought about a month ago. I ended up being an Eclipse owner by accident more than anything else; now I'm hooked! My oldest son recently got his driver's permit and I wanted him to learn to drive a standard...
  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I searched that OBX and RRE headers wont pass in california, what about RIPP? However, all i can find are OBX though. Have any of you that live in California manage to pass an inspection with headers on? I know some shops in my state dont even check anything but our lights and blinkers...
  11. Driveline
    Hey guys, I'm new here. I finally bought a 4g a few weeks ago. I bought it knowing that the clutch was on its way out. It has about 74,xxx kms on it. I wanted to know, what type of clutch kit (stage, and brand?) should I go with? I'm looking to eventually do some mods to it (CAI, exhaust...
  12. Problem Reports
    Hey all, I've been scouring the forums here for a solution, but I've come across a lot of mixed reports in various threads. This seems to be a sort-of common issue. Model: 2008 GS (everything stock), 95,000 miles, all my own. Problem: Rattling/Whirring/Shuddering noise when clutch pedal...
  13. Problem Reports
    I've got a 2006 GT with 125K/mi that has developed an inconsistent rattle in the back at lower speeds or on city streets "with character" aka potholes and patches every 6 inches. Sometimes it's nonstop, other times it's infrequent, and thankfully it always goes away at highway speeds. The...
  14. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So first off, sorry i haven't been here in a couple years, got busy with college and a baby. so i had to put my car in the back burner as far as modifications. So i am wanting to get a body kit for my 2006 gt, someone hit my front bumper while parked and well i need a new one, why not take...
  15. Automotive For Sale/Wanted
    So i just got the confirmation from Mitsubishi that the 09-12 front bumpers do fit on the 08 model, however no body shops around me seem to be able to find any and the dealership is charging a lot, so im wondering if any of you are selling one, it has to be in good condition, if you have it in...

    I know its probably a long shot that any AZ members browse the forum actively, but does anyone know of any good paint shops in the phoenix area?
  17. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Last February, I posted my daughter had crashed her 07' Eclipse SE. It was a beautiful car in perfect shape. State Farm totaled the car estimating around $6K to fix it (extensive front end damage including engine cradle/frame rails). I bought the car back and waited until I received my sick...
  18. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    [Just skip to the bottom if you'd like to skip the theatrics] "GO USE THE SEARCH BUTTON!" "GO READ A SOMETHING!" Yes, this is most likely what you are thinking; another thread about some newbie kid wanting to turbocharge his V6 Eclipse- and you'd be correct, because I do! But I digress. That...
  19. Problem Reports
    I've been to two dealers, and two non dealer shops, in the past 2 years. Thankfully only the dealer shops charged me, but I'm still about $400 in and back to no cold air. They each get it working again for a few days, but then the green a/c light starts blinking randomly and then shortly...
  20. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Ok guys, I apologize if this is covered somewhere, but I haven't been able to find a thread that helps. Last year, after my '07 Spyder GS had been sitting neglected for way too long (work truck takes priority) I drove it across town to our new house. Long story short it developed a pretty...
