    2010 Subaru Wrx VS 2009 mitsubishi eclipse V6

    Last night both my room mate and I put our two cars to the test.

    The stats and mods of the two cars are:

    Eclipse- cold air intake (not properly tuned for the intake)

    Wrx- Stock

    Both- good set of summer tires, nothing special

    Overall my Wrx pulled ahead at every speed, though the most trouble was doing a 2nd pull from 30km.

    From a full stop I felt like my WRX turbo spooled up quickly and by 3rd gear (90-100km) the wrx would reel in my buddies Eclipse V6.

    The question I have for the club is what could my buddy do. I told him a proper tune with the intake would solve his problem, is that correct.

    Also after a cold air intake, a turbo back exhaust and a proper tune what is my best option for performance. I will be upgrading the sway bars and possibly the shocks but what can I do for performance that wont stress my engine.

    Thanks Guys,

    Donavan

    I don't understand tour buddies problem. Is it that you undoubtedly smoked him in every possible aspect ever? Cause that's a common problem for other car owners stock vs stock wrx. Haha.

    The v6 eclipse is na. If his problem is speed, there isn't much he can do aside from tuning (only 15hp max) or dropping in a turbo or a supercharger.

    Tell your mitsu buddy to go get himself a real car, grab an evo and not a girls car.

    Force induction will be the best cure for his power woes, if he wants to keep that car that is. He can tune and do some other mild add-ons, but it will not make it too much quicker.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum!

    I am glad that Mitsu finally gave the eclipse some balls again after that 3rd gen abomination, but they still cant compare to the potential (when you can keep them running) of the 1g/2g 4G63T AWD Eclipses of the 90's

    the only question I had was if you put a C.A.I. into ur car does it hinder your car before u get a proper tune?

    Your car should not have an intake on it without ECU calibration to go with it.

    I'm not familiar enough with the ECU of the Eclipse to be able to answer that properly.

    The Eclipse had the intake...he said his car was stock.

    Does the rest of the car community really think that a CAI produces any noticeable power on a stock ECU with an otherwise stock motor? SMH
