    Hello,

    I'm planning on purchasing an Eclipse GT in the US, due to the very favourable exchange rate (roughly $8,000 CDN savings after accounting for the GST requirement at the border, plus customs levies); but apparently the US model doesn't meet Canadian bumper requirements (the intercooler can be damaged in an 8 km/h impact); does anyone know the approximate cost I'd be facing to bring the vehicle in line w/ Canadian bumper requirements?

    Check out the Importing Car into Canada from US discussion while waiting for responses to your bumper question. Especially the warranty posts.

    Hi everyone! I'm new here so i'm kinda still learning the ropes. I have an '03 Eclipse GTS and am thinking about putting in a K&N air filter. Will it increase the performance of the car? Thanks for any input.
  • Is there anything I need to know before I buy one?

  • i own a 2006 eclipse gs and was wondering if any one has come across a bolt-on kit yet, or if you have heard of any developments of a turbo kit. my car is set up for a turbo and ready to go. its just a matter of time now.

  • Hi. I have a 1996 3000GT non-turbo. I would like to add a twin turbo sytem to it and was wondering what i would have to do to the engine(if anything) so it could handle the turbos. Also what a good site for Turbos.

  • I would go out and buy a 6G72DETT from a used jdm engine supplier along with the tranny and ecm.. It would be probally the cheapest way to add a turbo charger to your car.

    hey i m planning to buy 06-up Mitsubishi Eclipse Halo Projector Headlights /w LED (Pair)Black but i m looking for stores that carry this product and i live in Toronto ....if n e one knows bout this headlight let me know
  • I have a 96 3000GT with a strong engine and new trans but would like to get a little better throttle response/initial acceleration. Are there any easy relatively inexpensive modifications that could accomplish this? K&N filter?, cold air induction, cat back exhaust etc. Will any of these make any noticeable changes? Thanks
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,403
    RAM air, rather than cold air, might give you better throttle response on the low end. A K&N does nothing but make noise unless that's coupled with intake mods of some kind.

    I'm not sure about a larger throttle body. I hear all kinds of conflicting data on that...

    Actually a K&N will give you better throttle response and combined with a CAI will also help. Horsepower gains on the other hand are better accomplished through CAI + K&N + Exhaust modifications. Essentially you are allowing it to breathe and exhaust air and fuel faster and therefore increase your HP, if you only do half the equation you will only gain in throttle response.

    As for RamAir, that is not something easily or cheaply accomplished in the aftermarket and essentially doesn't really help a whole lot in terms of HP. Forced induction (Supercharging or Turbo) gives significant HP gains but are very expensive to do correctly and often involves a lot of modifications to the motor, cooling system oil system and sometimes the body of the car itself.
