Time For A Car Related Game...guess What I Am Getting


Recommended Posts

Really? The Eclipse was never sold in Japan? Well hell... Never would have guessed that...

Vehicle was designed for the US market, based upon the galant.

The reason i picked it..other than it is kind of cool...

23 mpg city, 31 highway, despite having about the same power as my 3.0L V6

You can't spell disappointment with out DSM (Diamond Star Motors). Those cars are huge toilets. Good luck with it.

They didn't have a turbo model for the third gen eclipse. Just a 2.4 or 3.0v6.

Wouldn't say it has the same power output as the vulcan... about 150hp/160ft-lb. Vulcan is 155/200. Duratec is 200/200.

Still not bad for a 4 banger. Think about it... more cylinders = more torque!

4g64 can be a stout motor with boost as well.

Not telling you to do it or anything....

(Do it)

Lots of boost!

Vulcan is 155HP/186 LbFt, similar power levels out of a smaller engine for the 2.4

Those numbers are for gen 3 and early gen 4 vulcans. The numbers went up in 2004 when Ford changed the intake and programming.

I once had an '89 Honda Prelude Si with the 2.0L, 4WS with an auto trans. Yeah it was quick and nimble as heck in the city, but out on the highway I really missed the longer legs of the Taurus. But I'm not sure you'll run into that same issue with a 5 speed.

Majority of folks will say DSMs were 89-99. The unreliable ones were the 4g63 or anything else that had the moniker VR4 tacked on. People didn't maintain them and they had a undeserving stereotype.

His will be just fine.

I always went with Mitsub***hy. I hated working on Mits back in the day.

Thing is..this one is 100% stock, all factory components still.

Now, that also means that this car has the balance i wanted, a bit of sportyness and performance, yet decent mpg
