Here's what I've done so far to this bad boy.
It was bucking pretty bad when I would push the accelerator more than 25%. I did a boost leak test and got a leak from the throttle body. I could get the leak to seal if I moved the butterfly valve so figured it was the seals. I pulled the throttle body and replaced all the seals and o rings. Once I got the throttle body back on I boost tested it again and I was getting a leak at the BOV at anything over 5 psi so I replaced it with the forge recirculating valve. I replaced the plugs and wires while I was working on it as well. Once all was put back together I could get full boost without any bucking or hesitation.
I changed the oil which was low. I let out the coolant which wasn't coolant, just water which I guess is fine since it was an Atlanta Car. I replaced with coolant though. I changed the manual transmission fluid, brake fluid, and clutch fluid. I changed out the struts on the rear hatch which were dead and the busted up battery terminals. There was no lid on the wiper fluid reservoir which was full of fluid, leaves and small bugs. I pulled it out and cleaned it up and made a makeshift plug to keep gunk from getting in there.
I'm currently working on the audio system since the stock radio didn't have the code and the speakers were shot anyway. I've got Focal K2 speakers going in the front doors and Focal ACS 6 x 9 in the back to be driven by a Mosconi 4 channel. I've got an old Polk enclosed sub I hope still works that I'm going to fasten up in the back to finish up the system. I'm going with a double din Kenwood head unit. I'm posting some pictures of some of that stuff and I'll try to remember to keep on this thread.

Just when I thought I had this thing running correctly I've got an idle issue. Once the engine warms up it will idle between 1500 and 2500 RPM. I guess I'll have to start diagnosing this issue soon.

I won the Eclipse lottery when I bid 1200 on a parts car last week. I ended up with the winning bid on a 1999 GS with all the options. It's got the 2gb rear bumper I needed, the front fog lights and I'm going to use the rear hatch with high rise spoiler. Not only that but the car only had 13,000 original miles so it's got a spotless and perfect interior. It looks like I'll be doing some interior surgery on my 1995 and swapping the dash, seats and some of the body panels. The only problem is that it only came with one door panel. If anyone has a line on a black leather drivers side door panel I would be very appreciative.

ty lucky. This car only has 13000 miles on it. The interior is perfect so even though my 95 interior is in excellent shape I'm going to swap the interiors.

I also finished wiring up the audio in the GST. Here is what it looks like in the back right now with the amps. The distribution blocks are hidden behind the amps underneath the seat backs (see photo). I'm going to wait until it's painted before installing the sub.

I should be going to paint this week so my paint guy asked me to drop off the parts I am swapping so he can get started on them. I pulled the hatch, rear bumper and side skirts from the parts car and loaded them into the truck to take over.
