that eclipse would be fine without the vinyl and stickers, i do see an aftermarket intercooler which leads me to think that prob not a gs-t turbo (even if it wasn't a factory turbo car to begin with) that overrules your rice badging IMHO

ha again,youre overlooking that he said it was an automatic.granted,no that doesnt make it rice, but it seems like wasted work to put all that on an atx,and this is coming from an atx owner

Tom's 700 horsepower beast was atx... when you have a certain amount of power atx can be more feasible. Plus modern day atx's shit as well if not more precisely and faster than the best 3 pedal drivers

agreed. if you want to be a winner at the strip=atx w/ stall converter. Beats a standard every time.

trueenough,depends on the car-with something like an older eclipse that, to be honest, looks like its seen better days, the atx is probably not all that great.unless of course that dude is working on one fairly well disguised sleeper

Sounds good, I don't even know how to drive stick. Proves there's hope out there for automatic drivers.

I'd get pictures of some rice down here in FL, but I feel like a goon taking pics of stranger's cars.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold the phone. The guys over on s40concepts.net/forum have ALWAYS been on the quest for a FMIC to fit the S40's. Several people have gotten one to fit. Does that classify them as automatically rice? Just because it's automatic doesn't mean it's not worthy of an FMIC.

BTW: all early S40's are automatic. Manual was not even an option.
