Got a 50 trim T3 Garret/AI today. Thanks Bryan!

Incidentally, I'm working on a 95 eclipse gsx at work right now. Man, these 4Gs are monsters!

Eclipse ECU is built and installed.

People think that their B6 and BP engines "take to boost." I think that these people have never come across a 4G63. The biggest MAP sensor we have in stock is 4-bar. And this thing will use every bit of that. Yeah, it runs 40 pounds of boost. 40. It's not just for diesel trucks.

It also revs to 8500, and sounds delicious.

I am truly excited to get started on this project. We will only be making ballpark 350 wheel, but we should also be <2000 pounds.

Yea the 4g are just evil evil motors. They are always rated in the top 5 for the best 4cyl motors and can make into the 800+ whp. Oh and side, note that nice GSX in your shop isn't then the fastest 4g in the state.

** also the one in the shop is a 4g64... aka 2.4L

he said one of you guys were close. for some reason i don't think it's a truck. somebody else said it's a beetle, and that would match the 2010 grm type build. but i'm gonna say (even though it might not be able to be built for $2010 doallars depending on the condition of the shell) early 70's-80's 911

Beetle shells are pricey nowadays. Hell, could be a Ford Ranger for that matter. Plentiful and cheap.

Ben. Are you planning to go public with this build, or keep it secret? I'm curious.
