    I now have my eclipse sitting in the garage with more time to be worked on since I picked up a new Ecoboost stang to daily. I'm looking to achieve close to 400AWHP , I already have : Aftermarket ebay manual boost controller, Injen air intake, Godspeed FMIC, GReddy Type -S recirculated bov, Stage 3 EFT Clutch & light weight flywheel. All maintenance is up to date.

    I got the stock 7 bolt engine at the moment. Thinking of starting off with a Afpr & a turbo upgrade first along w/ dsm link. Stuck between the HX35 & FP68HTA.

    Any recommendations?

    Also considering a GST in my area that has a 7 blade HX35 already installed and running well w a 6 bolt built engine. Might be worth buying and swapping.

    Any pointer for my power goal are welcome

    Either one will get you there if you're running e85. You'll need a good fuel pump. I know a guy in Houston who may be selling a 68 so let me know. Also, remember that the v1 and v2 HTA68 perform differently so look into that.

    ^^ This is true. I'll have a freshly built 8 blade hx35 in a bep housing up for sale shortly as well.

    I've run all. (hx35/ v168hta/v68hta) and the hx35 is my favorite with the v168hta being shortly behind. all of the above will hit power goals with e-85.

    What sold me on the holset (inner ricer coming out) is the sound of the turbo spooling is intoxicating.

    Im running a bone stock 7 bolt with literally only headstuds my 95 awd auto car with a t3 twin scroll hx35 at 35psi on e85, @MorrisonFab consolidated runner twin scroll t3 manifold and FIC 1220s. I have less than $4k in the whole build including buying the car LOL. Have ran a best of 11.55 @ 120mph in the quarter and 7.43 @ 96mph in the 8th mile all while cutting horrible 1.9 sixty foot times from spinning all 4 off the line. Its making VERY good power and keeps up with 600hp domestics ALL DAY ;).

    There's a guy in the same town as you that needs your help getting his car back together. He blew the engine trying to impress a girl. Claims the "crank bolt fell off". I'll PM you details.
