    Sold 1998 Eclipse GS-T Spyder, 69k 5-sp

    Ok, I’m not real thrilled about putting up this listing, but we’ve got a small garage and my wife is getting annoyed at having her car outside during the winter and I don’t want to put the Eclipse in the driveway. Anyway, I’m not going to sell this very hard, but I promised her I would make some...

    2G Who wants a big SMIC? gauging interest

    I just started the thread to see if we could do it. I’m not sure if we have enough people to commit yet... but I’m happy to have Raven Fabrications take it over and run with it. They can decide how they want payment and how to organize it.I thought there was a member close by to Raven that was...

    Gsx Problem

    Sometimes the OBD scanners take a while with these ECUs. they’re just old. Try the scanner again, or try a different brand.

    Decent wash/wax for initial cleaning of long-neglected car?

    If you want the repaint to look good, you need to start from a smooth surface. But if you don’t have an indoor space it doesn’t really matter. It all depends on how much you want to spend—a Maaco job will probably look a lot better than a novice just learning how to spray.

    Decent wash/wax for initial cleaning of long-neglected car?

    ^^ Agree. Dish soap first, then car soap, then use a spray-wax. I wouldn’t bother with a real wax or sealer until you get your paint corrections done.Personally I’m a big fan of Chemical Guys. I’ve used their stuff for over a decade and about 99% of their products work as advertised, in my...

    Eco modding ideas?

    Not that I doubt you, since the 420a isn’t my platform, but Syked Performance in Washington State seems to think they can tune a stock 2G 420a.

    Eco modding ideas?

    tbh, weight savings usually is either expensive, or involves getting rid of comfort items. If it were my car and I wanted to max the MPG I would look into things like running the lightest weight oil that is appropriate, and tuning the car to make sure it’s not running overly rich and burning...

    2G Need help 97 eclipse gst High Idle

    Is it a quick jump in rpm, or more gradual? Are you stock, or have you changed your OEM idle settings?

    2G Need help 97 eclipse gst High Idle

    Auto or m/t? When you say “idle” you mean with your foot off the gas your car starts rolling up to 2300rpm? Or when in neutral the car idle rises to 2300rpm?

    2G Infinity Radio

    I haven’t gone out to check mine, but it should be 16 at a minimum. Each of the 4 channels has a +/-, so 8 wires from HU to amp, then 8 wires from amp to speakers. I’m going based on memory though. Someone can correct me.The amp may have an additional couple for a power signal, but again...

    2G Infinity Radio

    Not on a stock headunit. The OEM outputs are low level. He’s have to crank up the volume and it would still just be a whisper.

    If you don’t have the OEM connectors, Metra makes replacements. Would be a good place to start. And heat shrink tubing is your friend.

    2G Strut Bars still around?

    DC front bar made a noticable difference on my Spyder. I did have to trim down the driver’s side mount a little bit to clear the A/C lines, though.

    1G High Rolling Resistance

    New pads, new rotors, so everything has minimal clearances. If anything is misaligned, or if the caliper mounts are a little bent, the pads can drag on the rotors (or the rotors can drag on the caliper mounts). Shimming the calipers can help realign everything the way it should be, absent...

    1G High Rolling Resistance

    If you can do it safely, take it out of gear next time you feel the resistance. If the resistance increases in neutral, then my bet is brake dragging. Maybe your calipers need to be shimmed a little.

    Resistance on ground circuit...

    Ground your negative terminal externally (while car is stationary of course) and see if that changes how it runs.

    Key fob/alarm

    No beep or chirp. Look at the dash— there is a green “security” light that will come on when the alarm is set. It stays on for about 10 seconds then turns off.

    2G First DSM build advice.

    Once you upgrade your fuel injectors you will need a tuning solution. 400hp is beyond the capacity of the oem injectors, so yes, you will need something like ECM link, or if you are one of the 97s with a flashable blackbox, Openport 2.Generally speaking, you should be able to meet your goals...

    Wow. Let me know if you figure that one out, because I found the exact same style of key under the seat when I bought the car.I couldn’t figure it out, so I just chucked it into the parts bin.

    2G Who wants a big SMIC? gauging interest

    Depends on the core size, but generally yes, a super SMIC should be able to handle 400hp without issue, as long as it is ducted properly (as noted above).It won’t be able to match a full size FMIC in terms of performance, but if you aren’t looking to go for 600hp, (yet) then this is a good...

    2G Gas pedal seems to be glued / stuck ( throttle body )

    Throttle body cleaner. Take it off the intake manifold. Disassemble it and clean if you need to, or else replace it. Sounds like you got some grit from your cleaning efforts into the moving parts.In any case, a really dangerous situation. Good luck!

    You might want to reconsider 560cc. I don’t have my fueling sheets in front of me, but off the top of my head the 560cc will run 100% duty cycle around 370 crank hp, and you want 300awhp...

    2G Who wants a big SMIC? gauging interest

    I believe the oem 2G core is 8x7x2.7. An ~8x8x4.5 core would almost double the volume.Bell makes cores up to 6” thick so you wouldn’t have to stack... but I don’t know if 6 would fit in the oem location.
