It's decided: this car is getting a new engine. And a properly built one too!

I said a final goodbye to the Eclipse before christmas break by doing a few stupid things in an empty campus carpark on a snowy Michigan day like any kid would do!


Recently I've been knocking off a few small jobs that need doing but that aren't anything too major:
-Sourcing a new passenger's side fender to get painted
-Getting the wing repainted
-Cleaning up the engine bay with wire tucking and some good old-fashioned elbow grease to make everything shine!
-Installing an GFB G-Force II EBC
-Stripping, cleaning and rebuilding my Greddy Type S BOV ready for a powder coating job
-Replacing the headlights and fixing the indicator stalk

Next-up will be taking the car to a shop to get an engine rebuild along with a forged bottom end (crank, pistons, bearings) and also some supporting mods (arp head studs, mls head gasket, bigger fuel injectors, bigger fuel pump, afpr, ECMlink V3). It'll be pricey but be sure to check back in to see how it's all coming along!
