Glad you finally found another set of door caps. Sorry again that mine didnt survive the travel 😢
No worries - Who knew these things were so brittle! I still need to decide which ways I will strengthen them.

^^ x2

You looking for CAPS or ASA??

Without having to download software, there are these PDFs for the 2G Talon that'll get you a lot of part numbers, just not the Eclipse specific things.
I'm like - oh a PDF, interesting. Lets just open that up to see and OMFG - Yes! That will do nicely.

The turbine shaft and compressor wheel look salvageable.

E3-02 is a match for the 7cm TD05H turbine housing. 2G-02 will be leaving the setup, and Down-pipe mods will be needed.

Some pictures you can smell - some of you know what I mean. This engine has been sitting 10+ years after I removed it. At the time it was using coolant. When you break the bolts loose, there is an unmistakable bouquet of toasted oil.

Ordered a GoPro Hero 4 silver used from e-bay to save some bank
Bastard 20G components are on their way back from Justin :hellyeah:
Motor mounts drop shipped to John...

Trying to figure out if I should delete the ABS system, or locate after market sensors cheaper than $250 each. Opinions about ABS in the Eclipse?? - It worked good for the snow, - not sure about the track. Maybe if it was working well I would not be so annoyed by it....

Thoughts? - Aaaaaaand - go!

I thought the DSM ABS system only even worked on the front wheels. Maybe that’s just the 1Gs. Eh, either way it’s 20 year tech and it’s not gonna function amazing. Just don’t slam on the brakes in the snow. Lol.

I would never in my life choose no ABS. It can absolutely save your life, or at least your car, in even what you might think are mild weather conditions. I find the OEM Nippon Denso system on my 99 gsx invaluable for saving my tires from flat spotting in dry conditions. Could it be better? Sure, next step would be an $8k BMW MK60 ABS system, but that's pretty pricey (I haven't even done it... yet).

I tend to agree, but Its a silly thing to have wheel speed sensors $250 each. This car is now a garage queen. I have more efficient rides to work, so its a weekend/track day toy now I suppose.

Last time on track, trail breaking was not intuitive. The chassis would body roll in the opposite direction I was expecting - Turning left, it would rotate right (lean left) under heavy breaking, and vise versa. I dunno - does this sound familiar? I'm going to have to learn everything again anyway after the OHLINS and chassis rebuild are completed.
