    I have been doing some digging on 3g forums.

    "Hey, this may be a first. A thread of folks who are happy with their 3G! Nobody *****ing that its slow or that its a piece of sh*t. HMMM. there must be something wrong with us."

    "know everyone complains about our car's lack of power, our doors collecting water like buckets, or our sunroofs being pieces of sh*t, but my biggest complaint and the thing that pisses me off more than anything, OUR U-TURN RADIUS SUCKS."

    then later...

    "You have a GT with a 40' turning radius. You should trade it for a RS with ~35.4' radius.

    "btw.. I think 40' is about the same as a Navigator ;p"

    "I am almost positive the stock gsx rims are 25 pounds. So that would make the tires 23 pounds."

    No wonder everyone complains they are slow. A lot of people go for lighter tires/wheels to get quicker. How much power do they have?

    203.27 hp / 205.1 TQ
    AEM CAI
    Dual exhaust
    AMSS headers
    UR crank pulley
    Apex S-AFC(tune to 13:1 ratio)
    PSI Motorsports
    Mustang dyno
    2001 GT 5 spd, Sun and Sound

    others had 170 hp or less at the front wheels. NARF.
    Former car: 2002 Cobb/Scoobysport stage 2 WRX sedan
    New ride: ???

    Least they like them. But I find it funny that they complain about the car since they like the Mitsu 3g the way they do. All I can say is give me Rex any day over a 3g.

    Like i posted earlier.........that RIPPS SC is the ****.

    As far as the car being a chicks car.....ya great....matter of opinion i guess.

    I had one with intake, headers and exhaust. It was still a turd.

    Only thing i miss about the car was my sunroof. Damn i want my sunroof back. WRX is a far superior car to the 3g.

    You go up against a 3g with Ripps....you better have more than a turboback and a ECU flash.

    Hey. put a fast and furious sticker on that 3g Eclipse, make sure its a convertible and nos the living sh1+ out of it and it can beat mustangs that get run over by huge mac trucks with trailers. It even keeps up with a highly modded EvoVII with yellow paint. Hey maybe i'll pick up one tomorrow.

    Lets see. Watch out for those 3g eclipses w/ $5000 ripp supercharger package putting down.....oooh, 247 whp 220 wtq.

    Watch out for stage IV wrxs running VF34 and FMIC making 300 awhp and weighing 200 lbs less. There are a lot more of those then RIPP 3Gs.
