    In the exploratory phase of auto to manual swap and have a few questions. The shop that's been doing my suspension has done this swap before (4G MT swapped to Galant) and is onboard to help with the install. I've following salvage titles on erepairables.com and someday will find a donor car...
  2. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So, I started throwing the infamous P0421 bank 1 cat code. Was hoping it was just an O2 sensor, but dealer says the cat is failing. Spoke to RRE and they said if 1 was failing, the other is right behind it and best to replace both. So, approx. $2500. Considering I'm at 11 years and 101,000...

    Hi all, I have a 2006 GT. I was pulling out from a red light (on a steep hill) when I noticed the car wasn't shifting, so I pulled off to the side of the road and put it in neutral and back into drive and nothing occurred. I then put the car into park, turned it off, cranked it back on, and...

    I have a 2006 GS and I use the sportronic shift on occasion. Today was one of those occasions. I was stopped at a light and pushed twice and it went into 2nd while stopped and almost stalled when I tapped the gas. Also seemed to only be pulling from one wheel when it was in 2nd. Is this normal...

    So a buddy of mine got a 2008 Charger SXT and he's been wanting to race me and my 2006 Eclipse GS. I know he's carrying about 500 more pounds than I am, but will that make enough of a difference with his car having more horsepower with his V6 engine? Both cars are completely stock and have...
  11. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Ok, so I recently moved back home and to my delight I discovered a mechanic that knows a lot about Mitsubishi cars and is also a transmission specialist. I just found out from him today that the 4G Sportronic transmission 5 speed is really a 6 speed transmission. Which means the our computer...

    I have the 5-speed sportronic transmission, which means I have the + and - shift gate. I have not used it yet as I want to be sure how to use it. When is the best time to "upshift" and "downshift"? Should I pay more attention to the RPMs or the MPHs? Thanks, just looking for some tips really...

    Wasn't 100% sure where to put this thread so I put it here. So besides doing a LSD install, what are things that I can do to help with traction (beyond the obvious tires) Things like right now, brand new OE tires in sportronic manually shifting I can get 3rd to chirp. Cool yes, but 1st and 2nd...

    So one of my co-worker has a Mazda 6 v6 3.7L 272 stock horsepower and I thought my car would pull better from a 40 roll since his car has a 3.5k pound curb weight and mine has 3.3k pound curb weight. So from a 40 mph roll on a highway I thought it would better to use sportronic shift so I could...
