MARTINI's 99 Spyder

Post by MARTINI on Mon Feb 07, 2011 2:52 am

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

This is the current state and brief history of the vehicle. (I've neglected this post way too long)

Car started as a 2.4L 4G64 with an automatic transmision. This car was, at the time, only being built for show. (I had a 400 WHP Mustang Sitting in the drive way)
After a catastrophic engine failure, and alot of snickering by other DSMers, that I was modding a N/A, we decided to do what every one had told us was "impossable" and swap it out with a 2.0 4G63T and Manual Transmision. (Hey I was loyal to my car) Not sure why they told us it couldn't be done, what they should have said it was a big pain in the ass...
I picked up a 95 Talon AWD TSi with some decent mods that was rotted to hell for just under a G and a trip to the N.H. boarder. (rotted so bad that part of the rear axel was held on only by a bungi cord, that I didn't know untill after I already had hit fuel cut off in it)

Please note that this car is and probaly will always be under construction.

Wait, so you got rid of your dad's 87? You know, the car that you've been trying to weasle your way into owning since you where 16?

You loved that car. And you dumped it for a Mitsubishi... Damn, it has been a long time.

So I just a ball park estimate of how much I've spent on this build so far and including the original $3200.00 I paid for the car 5 years ago, I have close to $12,000.00 in to it...
