V8 Smoking Eclipse GSX 9.6@144 Emeraldes Towing sponsered Forced Performance FP3065 Turbo
Was an amazing Friday for the Turd. Went to the track to just have some fun
and never planed to set any records. I did have a running bet with TJ that
I would beat his 9sec CRX due to the fact that he probably could no hook up
on the fresh cold track. I had totally planed on him beating the Turd so I
could pay for his night of racing. Friday the 13th must be good luck since
we ran our 9.6 to TJ's best of a 10.2@148. Was only $20 on the line.
1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX - GSseX Season 3
This is the Season 3 video for GSseX. This is primarily an engine build
video as that is what took place the majority of its "third" season. The
vehicle is now a 2.4l G4CS powered torque machine!
Staying in line with my goals for this car to be a competitive road race
car, I have completed an engine appropriate for the road course. This was
my first engine build, and it was complicated by doing a 6 bolt swap just
to complicate things. However, with a factory service manual, DSMtuners,
and some dedication, the engine turned over without any complications. The
engine has been broken in on a 16g turbo
for about 500 miles and is running just fine!
There is a new fp3052 turbo ready to go
onto the car, and with any luck, I'll finish preparing the car for
inspection and FINALLY have a "season" video with some race course action!
I have yet to launch or really get on the new engine, so I dont even know
what it is capable of yet, but from the acceleration it gave me at even
partial throttle, it is scary. I can't wait to turn up the Boost on its new turbo :)
Thanks for watching, see you at Season 4!
