    06 wrx vs Turbo Eclipse

    The guy rolled up on me and said he just got his car out of the shop and asked if i would run him from second gear. Not exactly sure what year his car was but he had BOV and TBE not sure what else. I murked him by 1.5-2 cars by the end of third. Fun race wasnt sure what would happen from a roll I heard that boosted eclipses' are pretty quick. Today the WrX was teh FaStaR

    Not sure what i gathered from this, but what model year Eclipse? I know supposedly the 00-05's now have some pretty powerful Turbos and Superchargers out there. I kind of want to see what one of them has. This guy that lives behind me on the other street just got a turbo kit for his 2003 Eclipse (automatic tranny) he hasn't installed it yet, but i'm curious to see how he would hold up.

    It was most likely a 1G or 2G Eclipse. They had stock turbos. Those things are monsters when modded, especially the GSX. It's AWD.

    Yeah i figured it was a 1g or 2g, but i was curious to see if anyone has run into a turbocharged 3g yet.

    The 2G GSX's had the 4G63 engine right? (same as Evo?)

    I wouldn't take all Eclipse's lightly, there's some crazy mofo power houses out there.

    ^^^Yes, yes he did. Caught me off guard too.
    DSM's are nuts lol. Yeah, the 2g have the 4g63.
    Gst's are not a favorite of mine, they're kinda like the impreza base model of our cars. ...but still front wheel drive. Non-turbo + fwd= teh suXorZZzz.



    Nice kill.
