    I’m thinking: -wrinkle red valve cover, and I actually like it “shaved” -paint my fuse box cover black or wrap it in carbon -polishing or ceramic coating my charge pipes ( I understand thermal dynamic benefits, but I hate chrome) -painting little odds and ends. Aesthetically I would love a white...

    Picked up an FP intake and Ordered my FP Green! Been a pricey week for sure. But I’m hoping to break 350-375hp to the wheels with this set up on e85 (which I’m currently already on). It’s a fair and conservative estimate.In the meantime I’ll ceramic coat the header and intake. I’m planning to...

    I turned up the boost to 22psi. Working a few things around to maybe have a new FP set up come mid summer.Can’t decide for the FP Green or 68HTA. I plan on the manifold and intake as well. I don’t want to feel disappointed with overall numbers again, but also don’t want another snowball of...

    First of all, car feels great. I’m feeling better about driving it on the road. And I will say that e85 goes QUICK lol But I’m starting to feel a bit underwhelmed. Understanding it’s a small 16g @ 16psi (still going to turn up the boost) I was hoping to be in the neighborhood of 300. Reading...

    Foolishly almost traded for a clapped out 350z. Glad it didn’t work out honestly. I’ll be much happier with this on a e85 tune and a few more details like NRG Seats and a lip kit

    Thinking about E85 on my small 16g. I’ve seen numbers anywhere from 300-400whp. I would be happy down the middle and a healthy running balanced build.still working on the miles on the clutch. Soon enough hopefully the weather will cooperate and this all can be done

    Following up. Clutch is 100% slipping. I haven’t been nice to it in the 300-350 miles I’ve been breaking it in. Only slips in first under WOT.Also I installed a generic 3 inch exhaust today. The HKS 60mm was tiny in comparison. Plus for $108, it’s hard to complain. I think I’ll buy a muffler...

    Headliner was torn and sagging. Idk if the plastic trims were tan or just that faded. I touched those up in black and wrapped the visors and headliner in a almost t shirt like material. Whole thing was under $30 and I makes a huge difference!

    98 Eclipse GS | LS1 Swap Help

    I respectfully agree. It would be easier and probably cheaper in the long run to find another platform that LS swap kits are made for like Miatas or 300z. Even something with an existing RWD would put your light years ahead. orherwise, your building a tube chassis and placing the body over it...
