What kind of engine is in the Talon/Eclipse. I've heard that there are 2 different engines you can get in the Eclipse. One Mitsubish engine and one Neon engine. Is that tru and what is the difference?

What kind of engine is in my car?
How much horsepower does my [DSM] have in stock form?
What is the horsepower rating of a [DSM]?
That depends on which model you have. All of these cars have inline 4-cylinder engines, but the displacement and intake systems differ.

Base and mid models have non-turbo (NT) engines, while upper and AWD models have turbo (T) motors. All are 2.0L, except the base model (1.8L) and the non-turbo Spyder (2.4L). Details on the various configurations are below.
