That's sick. What wheels on that Eclipse? Reminds me of my old SF Winnings.

The kit looks nice too. It's a shame this is FWD and not Turbo AWD anymore. Mitsubishi really dropped the ball on that

That's a nice looking Eclipse, I have a soft spot for that car. It could be so much more, but Mitsu just killed it....bunch of idiots.

Just 3" PVC pipe and 2 3" end caps. Just add a valve stem onto one of the caps. Seal it all up with the sensors inside and air up to 35 psi...there should be a write up around

Small update, finally painted and installed my front lip, roof spoiler and diffuser. Looking for some sides now.

Feel like once I get sides, visors, exhaust and air I'll be happy with the car.
