Even though I dont have the car anymore I always said when I finished the car I would make a video and post it. So here it is. It doesnt go TOO in depth as to what I did but it's a nice movie. :)

Air Intake Pipe and K&N Filter Removal and Installation
A how-to on how to swap out and install the popular FP cast intake pipe
with a K&N air filter. Great quality and performance for the 90-99 DSM
Eclipse Talon Laser but can be applied to most cars with turbos. This partcular car has a Forced
performance Green turbo but applies to
14b 16g T28 Red HX35 HX40 Holset and many other turbos for the DSM. In this video I also check turbo wheel play also known as shaft play.
It doesn't hurt to check while you're in there.
Oh and P.S. I don't like the way I said "inertia" either. lol
AFRAID - First startup
Brian Crower 272 intake/Exhaust cams
1mm oversize valves on intake/Exhaust
Brian Crower valve springs & titanium retainers
Custom made T6 manifold
ACL race series bearings and gaskets
This startup is on the stock 440cc injectors and computer. Had to shut down
at the end due to a slow leak from the turbo oil return. Was also running straight out of
the 4 inch dump.
