what kind of eclipse?
i wish people would learn that hp isnt everything. yes its got 200 hp but gearing = poor. its slow as crap for what it COULD run. just like a mustang with 250 at the fly runs like its only got 200 at the fly.Originally posted by spydirweb@Aug 22 2004, 10:20 AM
yeah, the newer V6 models are pretty beastly...200hp at crank isn't bad for a small car like that.
yep the 90 - 99 were geared soo much better than the newer ones. my neighbor owns a 98 gsx were upgrading. so far intake piping, bov, mbc and fuel tuner on way.Originally posted by FrostbytetC@Aug 24 2004, 09:18 PM
Ohhh ok folks here we go. Ex-DSMer here. If the car is 90-99 any eclipse that is a GS-T or GSX would DESTROY our tC's. They are the ~210 hp turbo ones. I owned one... sold it, and bought a tC. Moving on. of the 3rd gen 2000+ the GTS is quick. The V6 pumps out decent power, but they are very poorly geared and especially the autos... not much of a car to speak of at all. Nice kill though man... its good to hear the tC is making a name for itself among the ricers! =o)
i know what u mean. my friend in panama city with his custom turbo tib.. 11psi @ 350whp ran a talon TSI running 17+psi with almost everything upgraded. i actually talked to the person after the races he said he was running 21psi : (Originally posted by FrostbytetC@Aug 24 2004, 10:20 PM
My talon TSI AWD (same as GSX) had Slow Boy Racing Side mount, T28 Turbo, S-AFC, 660cc injectors, 255hp fuel pump, pocket logger, Dejon Tool Intake, Dejon Tool boost Controller, Rebuilt tranny, ACT 2600 Clutch, XACT Flywheel, Dejon tool Lower and Upper Intercooler pipe, 1g blow off valve, TurboXS Turbo Timer, etc... They are fast, but ooohhh soooo unreliable...
strange i think the new tibs look a ton better than TC's :-DOriginally posted by FrostbytetC@Aug 24 2004, 10:44 PM
