I bought this car used and I've had it for around 10 years now and counting. I've honestly have had no problems with my car, it's always been reliable since the day I bought it. For the past 4-5 years I've modified the car and race in the SCCA with it. It puts out 300hp on a dyno. This car beats SVT Mustangs and Corvettes around the circuit, and even beat a Dodge Challenger 6.1 HEMI in a drag race. It has the 4G63 engine, which is the same engine as the Mitsubishi EVO. With that in mind and the all wheel drive and turbo, these cars are unique and getting hard to find. I will never sell my car.
4G63 engine is the best feature of this car. If you know cars, you'll know it's the same engine in the EVO. I love the interior with the dash made for the driver. The fact that this car is all wheel drive make it a lot of fun. I also love the wing, reminds me of the Supra. Besides the engine, I would have to say my favorite part would be the front bumper.
The GSX is great from the factory, but if you want to improve the performance I would suggest a front mount intercooler instead of the side mount. Also an updated airfilter and intake and a turbo-back exhause wouldn't hurt. Keep these cars looking nice and stock on the exterior is the best way this car looks.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse is very expensive to maintan, yet very fun to drive. It eats gas if you have a heavy foot and it takes only premium, which can be expensive. With around $1,000 in modifications, you'll easily be able to get 250+ hp.
This car is very stylish, the turbo is fast, and the interior design is great.
Improve the stock wheels, ride height, and very large wheel wells.
Fabulous Car. Has not caused a single
problem. Only reason I plan to sell is
that this car is not suited to a
family of four. Even my wife, who does
not like to drive with manual
trasmission, loves to drive the
This car is an awesome machine, 4
cylinder with v8 power. Very stylish and
i just love it. wouldnt change a thing.
17's from the factory. Spend $600.00 on
performance parts and your in the 13's
for a 1/4 mile. This thing rules!
You can get parts very cheap, this motor
has been in production for 14-15 years.
Change the exhaust and blow off valve
for a nice ride.
