I've drove that car and it is very slugish on take off I don't know if it's just the auto or if it's because it's weighted down ( two 15" subs in a box and a Lambo door kit Elec.)

WTF? How do you not know the year of the Eclipse? Does the body look like the F&F one or like the one that everyone & there mother seems to have? If its the 3rd gen? I think then you might. Heck if its even the 4th gen? ones with that 4 banger you should have a chance. Now if its a GT with the V6 then that could be a challenge. If its the older style & is a turbo, then good luck with that

the Eclipse is not my car I had too call him and ask it is a '95, is there a big diff. in a '94 or a '95, I didn't think so? but I can tell you that it's a 4 bangger non turbo and he can barely keep it together. ; Pulling them in second most cars that I drove the auto has a taller first gear (non-stall car) and would drag when shifting in to sec. and the stick with a shorter first gear and would be able to keep the rev up when hitting second, and stay in their torq. range but I'm just rambleing, there only one way to find out! and if that don't work I'll haul the mustang down there and half track both of them. the only car dusty (baby brother) has that might case a problme is a 300 z turbo so I can park it in my yard a few days. (he wants a peice of the beast)Him and his 12 or so psi against my 250 shot 3800 stall and 7200 shift point V8 and ET M/T slicks this is no shit I have broke two seats when that thing launches.

any way I'll let you know how it turns out,
chris

I just seen where I put '04 or '95 I ment '94 or '95 my bad, Damn, did you think I was that dumb? Cut me just a little slack LOL

gsr? isn't thar a bike? I rode my buddys busa, habasa or how ever you say it and that is one wicked s.o.b.!!! It told me that if I got one, it was going to KILL me. so I decided I didn't need it. But after I started using the rear brake to keep the front wheel down alittle lower I think it might be worth it!
