Which 1996 Eclipse is it? If I am correct, they come with 2 possible engines: 2.0L inline 4 and 2.4L inline 4. Also, which transmission? I think there's the 4 speed automatic and 5 speed manual.

The 1995 240 comes only with the 2.4L engine, if I'm correct and with the same 2 possible transmissions. Overall, I'd say it's pretty even but my personal preference is that a 240 will take it.

It may be able to beat an Eclipse GS, but there is no way in hell it could beat a GST or GSX.

You should be able to walk a GS or RS. Either one will probably break its tranny or shut down before the race is over anyways.

So youve got the 240SX right? What model is the guys Eclipse? Youll be able to beat a GS, RS, or GT, but not a GST or GSX.

Stock for stock, you should walk him quite easily.

So, when are you doing the SR20DET swap?
