    That's a beautiful color! You've kept it nice and clean, too. Great job, man.

      yeah it's been down for 7 months :/ hoping to have it back in time for the shootout. awd, turbo, and motor swap taking longer than expected

    That's dope man! I have a 99 eclipse that I payed almost nothing for and is running stock other than a cold air intake. What would I have to do to get it completely tuned like you did? It is my end goal and will be my dream car when I am finished but idk where to even start.

      If it's a non turbo, I don't know enough about them to tell you anything. But for a turbo, you could reflash the ecu with EVO scan. First you need to figure out what power you want to make, then you need to find a trusted tuner and talk with him because you are limited by his tuning ability. I stuck with bolt-ons until I ran into idle issues with my bigger throttle body, and had to get it tuned

      Also I had to convert my non-eprom ecu to an eprom ecu which I had ECMLink do. I told you to go the evo scan route because you have a black box ecu since that came in the 99 turbo model eclipse. First pick an upgrade path (aka your desired hp level/range), then find a tuner and talk with him. I wouldn't let anyone talk you into using a SAFC, they work I just don't support shortcuts

      I love that talon blue also, I was considering it. I've seen a bunch of rare talons with crazy blue colors, I couldn't find much info on them so I went with this eclipse blue
