    TLDR - I'm from Portugal and you guessed it: I own a DSM. Have my struggles and just want to get through them and also get welcomed in this so new community for me.


    Hi guys, Mike here. Since I had my drivers licence that I've wanted to own a 2g Eclipse GSX and honestly after doing some research on the cars and even going into the 1g versions I confess that I like the cars so much I wouldn't mind to own several of them. Unfortunately I can't find any GSX model in Portugal and even if I did I honestly don't think I would be able to afford to buy one, let alone import one. That said, even though it'll still be my dream to own one, one day, I bought myself a 2G Eclipse GS that came with 2 engines completely unassembled and with both screwed crankshafts (check profile for a bit more backstory on this).
    As a new guy to the DSM world and also a freshman in the car scene I've been struggling but it hasn't stopped me yet and so that is why I came here to be able to learn with you guys and even with my little knowledge help anyone that I can.
    Will be posting some thread(s) with my doubts soon and even though I'll look up to see if has been explained already I'm sure I'm none the wiser and will make my fair share of mistakes myself.
    Cheers to all!

    Welcome, are your crankshafts salvageable at all?

    Thank you matt.
    One of them seems to be, the other one looks really bad. Although give me a day because I'm going to upload pics and more details when I create my build threat to keep all you guys up to speed with the progress.
