Go ahead, the floor is yours. Tell me exactly how to do it, and don't forget to include links and prices. We'll all be waiting.

You're up Twinkie.
Hobo I don't know how to I'm telling you. I know I wouldn't be able to do it but I've "heard" of it being done because people start making there own parts for the cars. I apologize I should have been more clearer on my response that I "heard" it has been done but I will research it and get back to you on that if I can find it Anyways good job on finding another car hardwhite

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

I'm confident I have more experience with the 2G GSX than Hobo does. Very confident.

Also, people who claim to have made their Eclipses run 12s for $700 usually completely strip the interior, remove all seats but the drivers, A/C, blah blah blah. Plus, they usually have either gotten parts for free, already had them laying around, or have sponsors of some sort.

They say $700 is what it cost them, but it cost somebody more than that.

Yes you can, which will cost you about two tenths in the quarter. Why do pinheads think running hot air from under the hood is more efficient and faster than running the stock box with the cold air duct in place. It isn't and I've (we've) personally done the tests to prove it.

Only thing I can say is DSM.ORG or for a used motor car-parts .com. I have (modded) several of these motors. The more ponies the less longivitey. 450 hp at the wheels in awd and a lifespan of about 3000 km or roughly 2200 miles. Reliable? No, but one heck of a lot of fun on rallies. 248kph in 1/2 mile. it still only did high 13`s and broke clutches and trans bellhousings. There is no support at the back of the trans to handle the power and it cracks making the clutch next to useless

You could always buy one of Shep's Tranny kits. You know, the ones he has run 8s with.
