    Really had no interest or didn’t even know about this whole dsm thing as i live in Norway and there really aren’t many dsm vehicles up here. I was a huge car fan but mostly into Mercedes and old Toyota's had a E280 cdi and a KE70 before. After i crashed my Mercedes I was looking for a new car I was mostly looking for a old Toyota or a Miata something not many people had. One day while scrolling through Facebook marketplace I saw this one ad named "car" literally no information of what this was or nothing like that this was a 1997 Mitsubishi eclipse. The asked price was 50 000 Nok about 5000 Usd so I try to read myself on the car what I should look for and what type of engines it has ect. I read through a few vin decoders that it was a “RS” I didn’t really know much about any other types so I thought it might be good. When I go and look at the car it had no rust and had pretty good paint for being 23 years old ofc there was some paint damages but nothing big. He tells me that he had done a engine swap and a brake upgrading kit. Anyways I bought it for 4000$ and when I do more research on this car I find out that it had a 4g63T engine 16g turbo, KW Coilovers with Brembo brakes in the front and gto brakes on the rear 3” straight pipe from the turbo. I really fell inlove with this car and this is how I got introduced to the DSM family

    Welcome, be sure to update with pictures and check all the maintenance as the last thing we want is for a new owner to come in loving these then have an issue when its not check.

    we hope you enjoy it here with the vast amount of information we hold

    G'day from Down Under..., sounds like you got the makings of a fun car! Check the ECU to see if its been chipped with ECMLink, if not definitely purchase it, because these engines need management. Good luck!
