Blog Title: 1997 GST DD looking for 300whp
First of all thanks for checkin out my dsm journal and i hope you enjoy.
*Sorry in advance if you dont like the huge pics. I uploaded to photobucket then found out they were huge and didnt feel like redoing it.
Early 2010 i sold my 98 eclipse gs as can be seen here.
I was in search for a better performance oriented platform. I was looking at s2ks and wrxs for my new dd. In my spare time i frequented this forum to read random tech articles and was bit by the bug again. I wanted another dsm but take this one in a different directon than my previous. In November 2010 i found a 1997 eclipse gst. Took a 3 hour drive picked her up and brought her home.
With my previous car i had done some research on turboing the 420a so i had some knowledge on what it took to make my car go faster. I started using the aquired knowledge i had gained from this forum to plan out my build. I want a reliable dd, 300whp, and very clean looking dsm. I know that i might get some bad feedback on the aesthetic stuff i bought for the car since the money could had been put towards performance parts but i like my cars to look good. So now its time to gather parts.
Finally tuned! kinda..

Well i finally had a quick tune done to the car. I had originally planned to have it tuned here by a member but with my boost creep coming back from the dead and not being able to accuratly log afrs i felt it best just to have it done locally. As far as the tune goes i was happy with how the car ran but in terms of power and the put you back in your seat feeling i was quite disapointed. Its to be expected i guess. I am still on 91 oct at 17 psi but once it gets warm again i will go e85 and prob try for 24 psi. After i got home i took a few logs and it seems my o2 sensor is not cycling properly and i throw the fuel trim code. So im guessing i needa replace that. Also getting some small counts of knock will end up playing around with that and seeing if i can get rid of it but overall im pretty happy with it for now.
