Original QikQbn Eclipse GSX
In the 1990's I was heavy in to the Fast and Furious scene. I owned 4 Mitsubishi Eclipses.
1990 GS, 1992 GS-T , 1994 GSX, 1997 GSX. I modified all of them in some way .
The Turbo models were obviously the ones that became my obsession.
Here is a quick story and look at my Pride and Joy from my DSM (Diamond Star Motors)days.
A 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX All Wheel Drive.
I purchased this car brand new as a 2.0 liter turbo charged 4cylinder that made
210 hp and 200 lbs of torque stock. Stock performance was 0-60 mph in 6.3 and
1/4 mile of 15.0 @ 95 mph. After a hobbie that turned into a mental illness this
car would go through major engine modifications with larger turbos and exhaust
system that reached a climax of close to 475 horsepower and 450 lbs of torque.
This car saw a best of 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and quater mile times of
11.7 @ 120 mph and a top speed of 180 mph.
I Sold this car back in 2004. Wish I knew what happened to it. It was an awesome car!
