Its funny how friends like to talk crap on us just cause there really not sure what to expect out of the TC. My buddy has a eclipse and its all decked out and actually it looks really good. Lambo doors awesome paint and nice kit to it as well. I always see him buzzin around town, and one evening my girlfriend and i were going out to dinner and saw him at the light. I pulled up to the light knowing what i was about to do and the GF didnt. I said hi to my buddy and asked him how he was feeling he said fine. I said "you wont be for long" he just sat there and laughed. the girl in the car with him asked what was going on and so did my girlfriend. i just calmly said "hold on k" she said why. light turns green and
were off. That was the end of that. i pulled away from him soo hard. The next light I asked him how he felt again. what do you think he said. NOT SO GOOD.

another win by the TC.

With most of those Eclipses out there, it's not much of a contest.

yeah, the newer V6 models are pretty beastly...200hp at crank isn't bad for a small car like that.
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.

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)

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.

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...

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 : (

the tib only has a 2.5" exhaust, no ported manifold etc. iw ish he would let me make him a larger exhaust and get him a ported manifold squeeze out another 30 - 40 whp.

well here is a link to the video check it out

http://ibbanez.com/video/streetrace2.avi

the tsi of course gets better launch but the tib takes over in the end.

forgot to mention, for those people who say hyundai builds crap cars.. the turbo running 11psi is on STOCK internals, STOCK block and the tranmsission except for clutch plate is stock..

yeah, ill give you that.... for some reason, hyundai's respond to boost well. I just think they're ugly... LOL... not that it makes any difference
strange i think the new tibs look a ton better than TC's :-D

but yeah the only ones were ugly and the rest of the hyundai's arent much for lookers.. but neither are the xA or xB : )

yeah i know but i mean the tc's look awesome but i like the tib a lil better.

but yeah on topic.. as we stated before power output + long gear ratios = crap performance.

its why the new eclipses arent all that great.

The way i've seen TC's almost keep up with my tib, im sure u wouldnt have problems with the eclipse v6

I've driven two Mitsubishis in my life and hope to never have to drive one again period, let alone pay for one. They are poorly built pieces of crap. Eclipses suck, whether they're faster than the tC or not.
