  • 1990 Eclipse GSX. 08/18/10 More Vids!

    So I should be picking this car up this weekend for $1200. It's uber clean and need a few things to get it going. Such as a headgasket, timing belt and a couple if not all the valves. So for about $200 or so it should be up and running and near 100% stock with the exception of the wheels with new tires and a turbo intake.

    images removed from this post as the add was removed from CL.

    Obviously there is a list of mods to come and for cheap also considering after market out there and the time it will save from fabbing shit to work on it also.

    Down Pipe
    Test Pipe
    Cat back exhaust
    Intercooler Kit
    Front/Rear Strut Tower Bars
    Lowering Springs
    Timing Belt
    Head Gasket
    Short throw shifter
    A Pillar 2 Gauge Pod
    Black boost gauge
    TDo6 20G Turbo Kit

    on top of the parts i have already

    innovate lc-1 wide band with xd-16 gauge
    Greddy profec type s boost controller
    Turbo timer
    cd/dvd/mp3/blue tooth player
    rockford fosgate 3 way component speaker with cross overs
    Alpine type r 10" sub
    Alpine mono amp
    The new seats i have

    This is the official list if all goes well and as planned.

    In time if money allows

    DSM link
    Walbro fuel pump
    52# injectors

    That should do it on a nice tune from 14-17psi of boost I'm not looking for anything too crazy. But, something fun. Granted it would be capable of alot more but, i'm looking for a good tune and fun on stock boost of 14psi to maybe 17psi tops and enjoy it.

    I hate to see you leaving and losing the sl2 : /

    But you look like you've found a steal, I've always wanted a 1st or 2nd gen eclipse.
    I'm digging the color, I cant wait to see what you do with this Jason.

            I sure hope so. Thanks!

            I'm uploading pics now. The camera which i didnt notice at the time was smudged up and the pics are a bit blury. But, mother fucker this thing is clean and all the parts are in the trunk ready to go. Just need to get the head off and inspec the valves and see wat i need to do and pick up those parts and replace the hg and timing belt and get it back together and get it legal when it runs.

            Then once this parts out finishes up with a few more people and if parts continue to sell then the parts list will come.

                So I paid $600 for now and chances are we could go back up tonight and pick it up if not tomorrow around 1pm. Tonight would be freaking awesome though.
                At that time i'll pay the other $600 and get the title and be set from there. I also spoke to a good friend who i've known since were were 15 and he's never owned anything other than dsm specifically talon, laser and eclipses. so i picked his brain today and he offered his help and opinion on things. But, once it's home i need to get working on the turd to get the parts out that are paid for, for now. Once thats done and with any extra free time i'll move onto working on the gsx and get the head off and see what and how many valves it need and pray for no other damage. Then get the hg and timing belt eplaced and it all back together and street legal. With the extra money from there i'll start picking up stuff on the list. First being the complete exhaust and intercooler kit with bov. Then next being the stb's and lowering springs and one by one after that.

                  Well it's at my neighbors house with the title in my hands. Obviously i wont get to working on it until i get the stuff in the part out off and shipped. But, for now some more pics. I dropped the misc parts back in place just for the look. These are on my cell phone but, i'll see what the wife got on the camera.

                      Good find, definitely has some potential! I plan to have another DSM down the road. My favorite ones are red or burgundy (it just looks great with the black top).

                            LOL! yeah i dont plan on having anyone back there. May be my daughter if she wants to go for a ride when it's ready. But, it's not a family car by any means. Aside from a test drive when it's ready i'll have at the most the wife and daughter. But, typically I dont for see anyone else other than me or a friend in the passenger seat.
