    03 WRX stg II--- VS---06 Eclipse Anyone Anyone

    I didn’t want this to be another “What will the out come be” threaded, but im having trouble finding info on WRX runs with 06 Eclipses (V6).

    Guy next door to my work has been hassling me to do a few runs since he got his new 06 Eclipse. We have never been able to find the time. Now that he has installed a new intake and exhaust he really wants to see the out come; as do I.

    Not quite sure how much the intake and exhaust actually help an Eclipse but he claims he is now sitting on 300 HP.

    The only things I have done to my 03 WRX are: Cobb stg II, catless uppipe, midpipe cat removed, and pulley.

    He agreed to run both from a stop and a roll. So if anyone has some insight please do share. I will keep you posted as a few runs this week will be imminent. Would just like to do my 06 Eclipse home work first.

    Thanks

    The new bubble Eclipses, have something like 260hp and FWD. They are very heavy for a "sport coupe" weighing in around 3600 lbs or so. I remeber reading a Car and Driver article saying they run low 14s trapping around 100. I think you'll be good from a stop but it'll be closer from a roll, maybe with him edging you out. Good luck and be safe.

    you will destroy him. I ran one with intake from a dig, a 40 roll, and a 60 roll.

    Dig:
    I pulled like 3 cars from the get go and just kept pulling till he let off at 75mph.

    40 roll:
    I pulled like 4 1/2 cars and then slowly walked him after that.

    60 roll:
    I pulled like 3 cars and it was even up to about 125.

    I only have the mods in my sig, i'm not even stage 2 yet (will be soon). So you should have no problem wiping the floor w/ his ass.

    Well it looks like a mixed bag here...might find out the results either today or Friday.

    To answer your question the only stock pipe left in my car is the long resonator pipe. All other cats are gone.

    I believe they trap like 101-102mph which is equivalent to perfectly driven stage 2 WRX in terms of trap speed.

    Unfortunately he has changed his story and is now saying he will only race on the track. That’s probably the correct and safe way to do this but I even suggested a start from a 40mph roll which would be to his advantage. Pisses me off, its like a female promising you sex but never putting out (why’d I ever get married). Hopefully he will change his mind. Perhaps I should send him some roses and chocolates.

    hahah,

    I ran one when i was cobb stage II and it wasn't even a race from the dig, I did have one ask me to run the other day but now i have my VF-34 with full supporting mods. I asked him if he had anything done other than the obviouse exhaust. He said he had an intake and some other stage II stuff, I told him i was stage 4 but if he wanted to go from a roll i would. The outcome was about what i expected.. wasn't pretty for the eclipse. i pulled very hard on him from the jump and i let off at 70 when i was already 4 cars + ahead.. we started at about 30.

    By that logic the wrx is a turd as well... Including the 06.

    IMO you should get him from a dig, and will be quite close from a roll.
