    Eclipse OZ edition

    Found this car on craigslist needing a transmission so paid $900. Came with new tires, all leather black interior, the oem oz wheels, and a touchscreen headunit. Last year I was talking about dropping a galant engine into a non turbo eclipse (because engine mount locations match), then doing an evo head swap with an evo ecu and evo wiring harness @ stock boost. Should be fun! If I can mount the evo rear end in a gsx subframe, then I'll do an awd swap too!

    those don't look like the oem OZ F1 Cups. did they come with 2 sets of wheels?

    Webhosting for less than $3 a month? put "pinoyesv6" as a promo code.

    lol! I have an app that actively searches for eclipse's on craiglist, so I finally found a non turbo that had all the eyecandy already! which is just what I wanted.

    I'm not sure yet. If I can afford to keep it around then I will. I also need the space for the eclipse now and the other galant so hoping to get my own place here shortly lol.

    haha, called Cpro (available for android and iphone). You just start a new search in the cars and trucks location, type in "eclipse" or another keyword, then use gps to add craiglist cities around you. I have about 20 cities added, so every few hours I get updates on new eclipses posted. Very handy app for sure! Just spend a few minutes learning how to use it.
