worth it

  1. Driveline
    I'm an old school shade tree mechanic who hasn't turned a wrench in a long time. I'm starting to mod the '08 GT I've had for 3 years already and I could use some advice from other gearheads about what mods I should address first. I'm looking to build for performance before hanging any...

    Hey guys, I'm Mason and I'm from the Utica-Rome area in NY, I've been using this forum a lot to answer basic questions I've had about my '07 Eclipse Spyder GS 5 speed and it's been a lot of help! I figured I'd finally make an account so I could participate more in the conversations. I've had...
  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. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I bought a 2007 Eclipse GS a few months ago and I've already driven it about 5000 kilometers. At first I thought it was good, but after driving it for a little bit it doesn't feel powerful at all anymore. I timed a few 0-60 runs and I'm averaging about 10 seconds. Even downshifting then putting...
  5. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    As most people know, there's a section of pipe between the RRE shorties and the catback. My question is if it would be worth it to have a custom piece made to bridge it at the correct diameter, and if that would result in increased power? I imagine it will, but looking to get a few opinions...
  6. Do It Yourself Guides (Howto)
    As all of you Eclipse owners know, it picks up a lot of outside road noise when traveling on highways or just normal roads. Well I got a little solution for you with some pictures of what I did to my rear/tail end of my car. I used Noico 80 Mil sound dampening panels (link below). This takes a...
  7. Part Reviews/Opinions
    Hi, I'm a little new to posting on forums, i have a 2006 Eclipse GS which I've owned for about a year now and I've been getting into upgrading somethings. I've looked around the forum quite a bit and I've read that the Depo black bezel led tail lights are suppose to be equal quality to the...
  8. 2000-2005 Eclipse (General 3G)

    No, no.. it probably won't actually happen, but it has crossed my mind. The 25 year import ban is just now expiring, so a lot of 25 year old Skyline R32's are popping up for sale on Craigslist (I live a few hours from the Canadian border, so I see their Skylines for sale), and they are/ will be...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...

    Sup yall, i been rockin a chevy cavalier 97 for 12 years, i was in a wreck 04 nearly died and bought the car as a temp because it was cheap and convenient. Over time i had fun with the piece and modded the sound as hard as my skills and budget could let, had a pioneer HU Alpine type R 6.5 in...
  13. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So those of you with the magnaflow high flow cat, is it really worth it? I have RRE headers up to a Magnaflow catback with the stock 3rd cat right now. Will the exhaust tone get noticeably deeper? And has anyone had trouble passing inspection with it? I live in NY. Im not really expecting any HP...
  14. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey guys, I have a 2009 Eclipse GS that I have kept stock for the 5 years that I have owned it with intention to eventually trade it off. I only have around 41k miles on it so far. Ive come to the conclusion that I probably wont be trading it any time soon so I am tempted to start modding it...
  15. Motorsports (Racing)
    After posting on reddit about my dyno I got a lot of hate for 4G and 4 cylinder, but a few good souls said to just keep working on the car and run 1/4s to get a baseline, so I decided to hit the local 1320, its gonna be a street car night so I shouldn't be the only piece of rice out there. I'm...
  16. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey fellow 4G owners, I was wondering if it would be worth the money to upgrade my 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse SE 2.4L / 4Cyl with an automatic transmission. At that time, I didn't really care for much about upgrading and stuff, I just wanted a Mitsubishi Eclipse. It was in my price range ($8000)...

    One of the most important style elements of any car is the wheels. You don't have to do a fancy body work or a paint job to personalize your car or make it stand out, a set of properly selected custom rims will do it all. Today we would like mention one of the most popular aftermarket wheel...
  18. Member's Rides
    Well I just purchased a 2012 Eclipse. I think I have fallen in love already. I'm not sure the route I want to take yet, but I would love some advice on a good exhaust for this car. Being a 20 year old male, my insurance doubled with this car but it is well worth it. I have big plans for this car...

    I suppose this is in the right section. Anyway, I was walking out of my house to leave for work when I heard a pack of cars with loud exhausts fly by up the road. I didn't look quick enough to see what they were so I hopped in my 4G and hauled ass to catch up with them- it was so worth it...
