    Thanks Omar! Yeah the problem is time. I'm sure that if I just sat in there for a couple days messing with it I could get'er done, but I've only been playing with it in my spare time for a few hrs every week or so. I'll keep updating my thread as I figure things out.

    No, If I do, I plan on sometime this summer for a very dependable DD. I have been looking for a 95'/96'GSX for about 8 months now and no luck still, but another guy has a one and I pretty much do his work on adjusting everything when he can't or F**** up. Back to you if you start something good, I will be giving you a heads up/contacting you....besides you are a 30 min drive...haha

    Ok..just an update on this thread. I am very close to having a solution to my MS situation. If things go as planned I'm sure I will be able to help other members that bought the MS system and are stuck not knowing how to get it started and tuned. I should know something in the next couple weeks, or I guess I should say my car should be doing 400hp+ in the next couple weeks:thumb:

    Update- Tuned remotely yesterday 3-19-12 with Erick from ASP-Turbo. Car Idles now very nicely at 1100 rpm i might add. Doing a second session tonight 3-20-12 to smooth it out more. Will possibly do some street tuning. So far very impressed with Erick at ASP-Turbo and can so far say i highly recommend him. The remote tuning is a genius idea also. As long as your setup is good and you have everything ready it goes by very smoothly. I should have another report by tomorrow and final numbers on my Dyno tune by this weekend. peace:hellyeah:

    If anyone is needing a Megasquirt Dyno Tune in the dallas area i highly recommend Steve over at PRT Performance in Lewisville. He has an AWD mustang Dyno and knows how to tune various ECMs including Megasquirt. I still keep up with Erick from ASP turbo, he's a great guy and helps me with questions and remote tuning from time to time but if the situation calls for a DYNO give PRT Performance a call 817-683-5715.

    Technically I'm on the mckiney side of frisco. I believe based on stonework we are both in north Frisco, you're probably on the little elm side

    I have 2 currently, have had a total of 6.

    Here's a gs from a few years back. The stillen bumper really had issues after a few years, I want to say it started to droop and eventually tore around the headlights. Though my wife was driving it from Frisco to Arlington everyday DSCF1037.jpg

    4ABCB738-11D9-4060-A0A9-324EA6ABBB81.jpeg Can you tell what my favorite color combos are 5262CE05-01A1-40B5-BD16-0B6E2E5FE093.jpeg Yeah I’m actually right on el dorado and Preston in Frisco. Wow man! I’m actually stil good friends with Chris the person who originally built this car back in early 2000’s (maybe 04 or so), small world. It’s so cool to see it’s still on the road just like mine still is. Amazing, I’m going to let him know LOL he’s gonna be all nostalgic . We’ll need to go grab a beer sometime and cruise the ol DSMs for old time sake LOL. I currently own a few cars also. AP2 S2k, 70 beetle, 69 Datsun fairlady roadster 2000, SVT Raptor, 86 Corolla AE86, 90 galant GSX (vr4 conversion) and a couple bikes. Sounds like we’re both car fanatics LOL. This is my eclipse , I’ve owned it for 22 years, boosted it in 02. Love it.

    Also just realized you said it’s from a few years back so maybe you don’t have it anymore:(. Yes those stillen bumpers were pretty good but I did replace mine once due to a family of armadillos getting in my way at the 121 and Preston intersection. Destroyed it beyond repair. The new one has been better but has been repainted several times and also repaired once. I have a really good auto paint guy should you ever need paint at a budget cost.

    Yeah Soo, that GS doesn't look like that anymore. It bounced around on Craigslist a few times after I sold it, last I saw it was in the background of another Craigslist ad at a body shop getting a new paint job. The clear was really coming off of the Pearl, and the kid I sold it to hit some one in a parking lot. I randomly talk to chris so he's aware that the car is somewhere in fort Worth. To be fair the car jumped timing twice in 2 years, and my wife put 30k miles on it in those 2 years so we sold it back in 2013? 20171021_200359.jpg

    And yeah, you could say it's a gear head thing LOL

    So funny man, so I texted Chris before I rechecked and realized you didn’t have the car anymore check out the pic LOL! Poor Chris I bet he got all excited. Next Tuesday I’m headed to PRT Performance for tuning. 1pm if you’re not working or busy you should come out. April 21-22 im tracking it at eagles canyon, road racing is crazy fun. It’s so nice to see the 2g eclipses still on the road, hands down it’s the best body style the eclipse ever came in. I bought mine back when I didn’t know anything about turbos otherwise I would of bought the turbo GSX but to be fair I also didn’t make a lot of money then. None the less my 420a Franken setup has been great. I’m serious too man if you need any help with your car just let me know, I may or may not have an answer but I always know someone who does..LOL

    I could always use spare parts LOL But I think I'm on dsm number 7 currently

    I still have all of his build documentation and window stickers and owners manual for that car though


    I've got a 3 strike policy. His car had 3 strikes in a year, so did the mustang, so did the firebird. Leave me stranded 3 times and You're done. BTW I've had the Camaro for about 12 years now and zero strikes against it so far fad9201c.jpg kaputz.jpg 09cec30e.jpg

    Nice DSM. I may be out at Eagles Canyon then, just spectating, not driving the TDE event. It'll be cool to see a DSM on the track (I have yet to see one). It will be inspiration to get my 1G rebuilt and ready to run on the track.ROFL
