    Parts Wishlist:
    Currently building a new head with top of the line parts,

    Block is next as i have one to build and just deciding on internals, will be a 2.0 LR version. Almost chosen items now. Pistons left to decide on material?? Tricky

    Actual wish list is a drysump setup, redo the rollcage to allow a halo seat to be used,

    I would like to do a rwd conversion with a new age evo block converted to inline with a trans adaptor for a seqential gearbox possibly R154

    Ecumaster ecu / pdu and dash display

    BC ZR coilovers

    Hispec 4 or 6 piston racing caliper rear brakes customised with spot calipers and custom backing plate

    Make more custom body panels / molds

      I only used it since i kept the crash bar, once i ditch that i have another way im going to support it

      Yeah I think I'm going to keep the crash bar for my build since I'm going to have it on the road and track I dont want to loose any extra strength in the frame

      Its not adding any. The whole front area is supported in a cross design in the actual metalwork, so upper,lower and vertical supports

    That's a whole lot of work and parts to only have 180 lbs of torque. I have more than that with much less parts than u, maybe your information isn't up to date? Maybe you are speaking of a different unit?
    1. ec17pse
      This was on a T25 and an auto at the time and i could not hold the gear for the dyno, so it just did what it wanted to do and kicked down so getting a good reading was not good,

      Now i have a complete different setup and can hold gears but not been back since

    Hi Nice clean Eclipse.

    Where did you buy the paddle shift system. I am interesting getting one for my stock eclipse gst auto?
    1. ec17pse
      Track formula did my paddle system, he modified my steering wheel too, i used a road surge V3 kit but they not sold anymore so you would need a forcedfour kit
      ec17pse, Jun 23, 2018
    2. ChristianEclipseAuto
      Okay thanks I have just looked at the forcedfour kit, but that doesn't include any paddle shifters. Do you know where I can buy these shifters that will work with the forcedfourkit?
      ChristianEclipseAuto, Jun 23, 2018
    3. ec17pse
      They wont, as i said, track formula made my kit, its made to order so its not an off the shelf kit, forcedfour is just the shift box to control the transmission

    Very clean ride man, but I'm just sorta stumped. How does it only make 175hp? Shouldn't the T25 make a little bit more than that?
    1. ec17pse
      Its an auto! They cant hold 3rd gear for the pull very well so it kicks dosn to 2nd! The chap told me i can base it off of cold air intake or something and he worked that out at 193WHP so was a little more on target but he did say the autos are a pain to dyno well, i have a shiftbox now to install so it wont be an issue again!

      Also this was wayyyyy before i built the exhaust system aswell so i had a restrictive system and no ecmlink when it was on the dyno, i was warned to expect lower numbers and i did so its ok. As long as it was the same as stock or slightly better i was headed in the right direction haha
