    Hello all,On my 1998 Eclipse GST I’m in the process of replacing basically all of my AC components including putting in a new AC compressor. Have not yet pulled the old OEM compressor but from looking at top and bottom of it I don’t see any tag or label on it. I’m the original owner of the...

    Baby's got back!

    Just before the recent repaint I replaced the low beam headlight bulbs with Headlight Revolutions’s 9006 S-V.4 LED Bulbs. The high beams I left OEM. These low beams are in the regular housing and their beam pattern and throw absolutely blow away the OEM. They are also more of a cooler white...

    Hi, The timing belt was changed with a new OEM one about only about 15K miles ago, so its good to go for a while. When my son drives it, it will be on a limited basis, and with a GPS tracking/monitoring device as well as a de-tune with ECMLINK.He's actually growing up so far to be a very...

    Soooo....I've been away from the forums for a few years now. Busy with other work/life issues, growing kids, other hobbies and interests (off-roading with SxS, boating, my new F-250 SuperDuty 6.7 and RVing, etc) and I was not driving the GST much either. The Eclipse actually sat covered for...

    Bumper vents

    The vents work great. July and August are the absolute hottest and most humid months here in Miami. Even then, unless I sit prolonged idling AND after having done some hard pulls in the middle of the day (when its like 95 degrees and near 100% humidity), the temps cycle between 186-196, as the...

    My 98 GST has for the last +/- 8 years had a set of Eibach Pro-Kit springs with Tokico Illumina Shocks. I have been VERY happy with that set up but the shocks - front and back - are starting to sag some and maybe the springs are wearing also and I'm gonna replace them.I got a GREAT deal...

    High idle when warm after driving

    Do a boost leak test and listen for leaks at throttle body (TB) shaft seals and/or TB gaskets If the seals are bad you can replace them yourself - search for how to threads - a bit of a PITA or as an alternative send the TB out for rebuild. I sent mine recently to Steve Monroe at...

    throttle body shaft seals question

    After a recent BLT I too had leaking shaft seals. I sent my entire TB to Steve Monroe at Throttlebodys.Com For a very reasonable price he does a complete TB tear down, rebuild, TB seal replacement, gaskets etc. Great communication and very fast turnaround time. For the $$ it was worth...

    Missing cap on injectors?

    The "cap" you are referring to is one of the injector seals. You can get an injector seal kit here:FIC | FUEL INJECTOR CLINIC | INJECTOR SEAL KITI am not quite sure if that seal kit will fit other brand injectors or not (I have FIC injecotrs). Do you know what brand injectors you have...

    which tuner

    Especially in the case of DSMs, there is absolutely no doubt at all to go with ECMLINK over an AEM setup.The majority (by far) of modded DSMs use ECMLINK. This is one of its HUGE advantages over AEM becuase you can post logs on the various forums and get help online from other users (free)...

    Important: Improvements on Saturn Alternator Swap

    The above is from your post #7 in this thread. There is a correction to the above: On the Dorman pigtail (part #85854) for these Saturn GM CS alternators, the pigtail's black wire is actually the "F" and the brown wire is the "L".

    cooling fan question

    Don't bother with a pusher setup - there is not enough clearance between the A/C condenser and the radiator for them to fit and pushers are less effective than a pulling system as well. Putting pushers on the outside of the A/C condensor IMO would be innefective at properly cooling the radiator...

    Sqeaky POS 2g Door Panels

    Try sprinkling some talcum/baby powder over the back of the panel, all around where any parts join together. Then move and bend it a bit to get the powder between the joints.No this is not a joke, this is a remedy for squeaking wooden floors and it may work on this.
