Street Build 1998 Eclipse "Panther"

Year:
1998
Model/Trim:
Mitsubishi Eclipse N/T
  • Ownership Status:
    I own it
    Drivetrain:
    FWD
    Transmission Type:
    Manual
    Build Type:
    • Street
    • Drag Race
    • Road Course
    • Showcar
    Mods-Bolt-on:
    (interior) 5" JBL speakers in front, 6" JBL speakers in rear. 800 watt JBL amp with 12" Rockford Fosgate sub in the rear. JVC Touch radio unit. "R" Racing steering wheel cover. RS-1 floor mats with high reflectivity (looks good with the lower interior lights). And it looks like the previous owner put a blanket as the headliner... I drilled out some power mirror covers to fit my manual mirrors.
    Mods-Engine:
    Full cold air intake, Megan Racing headers, 233 cams, forged internals (pistons, rods, etc.) Painted block, K&N oil filter, DC Sports tip. High Energy Racing plug wires, NGK Platinum spark plugs. Full rebuild in 2017.
    Mods-EMS & Logging:
    None except an OBD II scanner.
    Mods-Drivetrain:
    Lower geared trans (can still go 40 in 1st, so hopefully achieves better 0-60 time). Short throw shifter with RS-1 knob. Full Exedy clutch system.
    Mods-Handling:
    Westlake Sport Touring tires. KONIG Racing wheels (16 x 7.5). Rebuilt front end. Powerstop Performance brake kit on front.
    Parts Wishlist:
    PAINT (working on it now). Powerstop brakes on rear, Sparco seats, smaller steering wheel, 3 gauge cluster (oil pressure, etc). In the future I plan to buy many more DSM's. A 2.4 and a 4g63 would be nice to have, so then I can be well educated on all the platforms and feel each individual experience. And maybe one day I will buy a cheap RS to put a 2.5 Avenger in it. (dreams)
    Background:
    Purchased: 1/4/2018. It was dumping oil out of the engine. I was lucky to make it home. The car was in nasty condition, its 1000% better now but I'm still working on it. I have been an influence on my friends and family with this car, they like DSM's now.
