Background
The 2g Eclipse was always a car that caught my attention as a kid, I seen this car come up for sale (May 2021) in rough shape but it had potential, lightly modded, no rust but paint was jacked up. Thats what started this spiral of time and money, Im ocd picky and hate cutting corners so I wanted to build a super clean all-round car that could handle the hyw cruising and some drag... So its not being purpose built for anything, meaning it never will be great at one thing but it will be good all round.

I decided to do a ground up build (striped to bare shell and rebuilt) Im currently still in the finishing stages and have 1300hrs into it so far. Turbo set up curently is a t04e at 30 psi (about 450whp), and I have a Precision 6766 to go on when I want to crank it up to 950+
