    MOST SUCESSFUL JUNKYARD RUN EVER!!!! I got 4 Eibach adjustable coilovers, a B&M (i think) short shifter, and a smooth tail panel for only $135!!! I am so satisfied. All they need is a little washing...

    Just did a little research...
    - the springs and adjustable parts are $500
    - the shocks are $100 each, so $400
    - the bezel sells for $20 on Ebay
    - the shifter is a Megan Racing, and it sells for $72


    So, it looks like I've got nearly $1k of parts right here. :hellyeah: :dsm::laser:

    To top everything off, I just picked up a Yonaka catback system. Just gotta wait for shipping though.

    Luckily my shifter plate is in almost perfect condition. Which means I wont have to use that rusty one. LOL I got everything all washed up, and it looks great. I need to order an new bushing for one of the struts, and then I'll install it.

    I wish I had a JY to pull from (besides my own). There just aren't any yards with these cars in them around here, so I am Jelly!!!!!

    There's plenty of yards in Alabama, but the closest one is 45 minutes away. And that's the only one where you actually pull your own part. Its only usually once or twice a year that an Eclipse come in though. So I grab what I can while they have it. And sometimes I get lucky :)

    I got the front coilovers installed. There is very little ground clearance, maybe 3 inches. Its basically slammed. Im waiting on the struts to come in for the rear and then I can do those. I also worked on the gauges a little bit today. I got the oil pressure and vacuum/boost ones in. Now I just need to put the volt gauge in and the lights for all 3.

    Catback installed tonight. Sounds good, and gave a noticable amount of power.

    I just ordered the egr block off plate kit. I will install them once I'm back in town, and I'm also deleting the stupid evap system. Remember, there is no emissions testing in Alabama.
    After having to spray the intake manifold multiple times with brake cleaner, I would like to keep it clean. I've had the egr unplugged for a while now, with no issues at all. I may have gained something, if anything. I'm selling my whole egr and evap systems if anybody is interested in buying either of them. I can post pics of those once removed if you guys want. I hope this will save some weight and make a smoother running engine. That should help with my upcoming autocross adventures.:D

    I finished the egr delete a couple days ago, just didn't have time to post here. Here's a little footage I took of it. I am still learning how to use this GoPro so sorry if it's not top notch quality ROFL

    Dropping the gas tank right now... In order to properly complete the evap deletion... And gashed my hand pretty bad on the heat shield... and broke some lines... I'm trying to decide if I should just go shower and get some sleep or if I should show this thing who's boss and finish taking it out.

    I've got some interesting pictures on the way. That's for sure...

    Let's get back to it I guess :|

    Wow... this is a lot of emissions crap. If I had to guess I'd say that this is 35 pounds worth... i used some sheet metal to cut and drill an evap blockoff plate that I put on the port on top of the gas tank to keep it from leaking. And just simply capped off the little port at the throttle body. Take a look at all this trash.

    A couple days ago I got a great deal on a 60mm throttle body. It should be in tomorrow. Now I just have to arrange the manifold porting.

    I found a beautiful Eclipse for sale on the Marketplace. I'm highly considering buying it. The price is a bit too high, but if I can talk him down, and if the car is in the condition I think it is then it's mine.

    Nice progress man! The car is looking good. How was the fitment of your catback? Did everything line up and seal well?

    Thanks man.

    It fit really well. And it has no leaks. It lines up perfectly with the stock exhaust hangers.
