Default Re: 97 Eclipse GSX

Little bit of a plan change:

I found out the VIN ends in 3076, so i figured it's only right I use a 3076 instead of a 35r!
Cancelled the OBX order and went with something much much more legit, a company called STM - handmade products in the states with quality metal.

Picked up another T25 OEM replacement turbo to hold me until the 3076 gets sent off to FP for a HTA package. Next up is I have to find a Tial 44mm or a Turbosmart 46mm wastegate!
Other than that the car is still running and got a 350mm NRG wheel with hub and quick release, best feeling every to have a proper steering wheel in hand.

Default Re: 97 Eclipse GSX

LMAO that's one way to justify a different turbo

Especially with the decreased displacement, I feel a 35R woulda been way overkill for a 2.0. But when that boost finally does kick in................................................ .................................... HOLD ON!!!!!!
