2g GSX How-To: Attempting turbo swap with WTF ending
Okay. Now I've seen it all. There's an old adage that states "if you want
something done right, you have to do it yourself". Well, this video both
confirms and debunks that theory. A lot of that depends on each person's
definition of "done right". You can't do things by-the-book with
Sheldon bought this car with a pretty full mod list and it ran great at the
time, but by the time we got it to the track, we couldn't beat a 16-second
pass. Despite the laundry list of troubleshooting we both attempted to do
through tuning and testing, we couldn't determine why it was around 4
seconds slower than it should be running. I started having doubts that a
"ported T-28" was what was on the car, and there's no easy way to tell them
apart without removing it so we opted to install a 14b... since plenty of
people easily run 13's with them. Stick around for the plot twist.
My DSM Song
I wrote this for all you DSM guys out there, and for all the heartache
caused by the cars that dictate our moods. If you get offended at any point
in this song, please watch the disclaimers at the end. Enjoy! Watch it as
many times as you'd like... IT'S FREE!!
V8's fear us.
Hondas want to be us.
Civics cannot beat us.
But at least their car starts...
The faster I go, the broker I get
This I know is true
But the faster I go, the wider I
When I hear my turboBoost.
My kids might not go to college
Cuz all the money I spent
But at least they'll have a couple DSMs
With a turbo and racin' rims.
Brain Earl Spillner used to be my hero
way back in the day.
But underneath the bodykit and neon lights
was a modded 420a.
Everyone knows buy a GS-T,
or even better yet a GSX.
Then spend all your money til your current girl
considers herself your ex!
I looked up crankwalk and got real scared
but they said it was just a myth.
So I made a hard left, and put er into 2nd
and my clutch started to stick.
Now my car's apart in my livin' room
and I'm sayin' "What the heck??!"
But at least I'm not a fool with a big fart can
tryin' to race my mom's VTEC!
I don't know why
I spend so much money.
DSM stands for "Don't Start Monthly"
But thanks to the guys at DSMtuners
I post in their forums
and they get me runnin sooner!

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T
Well I've decided to sell my long and never ending project. I've owned this
car since 98' and have garage kept it pretty much 98% of that time. This
car has never been in an accident and has a clean title. I'll even say this
is probably one of the nicest DSM's in the nation, definitely one of the
cleanest. I've taken time to do exactly what I wanted to the car. That
includes powder coating almost every piece under the hood (gloss black) or
polishing. Tons of attention to detail was used on this car. It will make a
great street/strip car as the only eliminations are A/C and cruise control.
Honestly I can't even remember everything that is done but the list below
is what I do remember.
1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Silver Minden Pearl
52,028 miles on chassis
207 miles on motor (true 2.0 4G63T) using only Brad Penn oil
The car made 418.3 WHP and 293.2 tq at 20 psi on a Dyno Dynamics loaded Dyno also known as the "heart
break" Dyno. You can
add 20-25% to that number and get what a Dyno Jet would read. There is a
lot more in this car, and I was looking making 500+ on that same Dyno, but found out the single
walbro fuel pump wasn't enough. The car hasn't seen the track since 2001,
so this current setup has yet to be abused.
